Cool Tech LLC. JK Gatemount CB Antenna System

I don't think this one fits the TJ ... if it did they would probably have said that. But does anyone make a mount like this for the TJ?

For that mount, do you need to grind away any paint for a ground, or does it not need it because it bolts onto the tub and is not powder coated?

You could simply make one from a piece of angle running along the top bolts. But when mounting on the gate it is hard to get a good ground as the hinges move. And you would have to grind. The best thing would be to mount it to the tub were you will have a good ground plane.

You can run a separate grd wire.
You could make thay bracket cheaply and buy your parts cheaply as well.

Ok cool. Thanks. Trying to figure out the best place to mount the antenna and I'd like to do it with the least amount of paint removal. Don't want it to rust.
