I don't have any pictures of Mike's on my iPad right now. But there is a built in mount on the ACE Pro bumper, behind the spare on the left hand side. It doesn't have any marks on it or anything, it's just an extra circular hole.

We did have to grind off a little bit of the powder coat on the underside to get a good ground for the antenna. He also had to add a spring to raise his 3' FireStik above the hard top. He didn't want to go with the 4', because it would have been too tall to get in the garage.

I can try to remember to take some pictures, if no one else gives you any in the meantime. If I forget, you can always send me a PM and remind me. :)

i have my antenna mounted like in the picture. i did grind off the powder coat but my swr is above 5. i went to a local cb shop and they told me to drill the hole to 1/2" because the antenna was making contact. did you have any problems like i am describing?if so what did you do or what do you recommend for me?
