idk if i would run dual antenna's on a ranger, you might want to do some research before hand.

the only way for it to work properly would be to mount one on the front bumper and one on the rear bumper.

102" on the center of toolbox.

dual needs to be 6ft apart...even then it's negative.

If you really want to run it almost the best you can, it's gotta be on the center of the roof or the bed...
