I am installing my c.b. today. I want to know what type of mount is the best to go with. I like the idea of the antenna in the back of the tailgate but where else would it be good to mount and is there any particular mounts to get. I have only access to antenna mounts sold at the local truck stop and there all mirror mounts.
if you have a tool box get a mirror clamp type mount just use the one side shaped like an L drill 4 holes in the tool box and mount it that way i'll post pics of my mount i built out of 1/4" diamond plate tig'd it together and then tig'd it to my tool box its deff one of a kind but i love it
This is what I ended up doing. I already had three hideous holes on the bed lip on the right side so I bought a flat mount and fabbed it up a bit to fit those three holes. Its kinda ugly but after paint itll be good.
And just for good measure I grounded the bed to the frame properly
