C.B antenna mount help

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.

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
