I've had bad experiences about bumper mounting, could never get em grounded good.

I had a 102" whip I was going to bumper mount, but I wanted the black Firestik 2.

and it's perfect in the bed of my truck, and is just over 7.5' tall altogether, and sends and recieves for 30+ miles.

there isnt a whole lot of tuning to do with 4 watts of power.
