CB Equipment Options

So I got this as a random present since Radio Shack was having a little sale...

Dont have any of the other equipment needed though. I currently have a tonneau cover so I was looking at getting a bumper mounted antenna. But I want one that I can remove when not in use, I haven't heard anything good about magnetic ones so I want to stay away from those. Any ideas? Links are also highly appreciated...and I also have no clue as to how to wire this thing up...was looking at mounting it in the same area as Alon's:


So any ideas, links or pics would be awesome!
Thanks,
Jutty

firestick antennas! dual antennas, it doesn't help more signal but it balances better.

Extension Mount


How much do you think it would cost to have this fabbed up to curl down below a tonneau cover?

If you are going to keep the CB, do not get dual antennas unless you can put them 8ft from each other and with dual antennas do not go over 4ft tall.
I like the K40 wips they are about 40-60 inch tall and also I used the Full Wave Length antennas the FWL are 102 inch tall but they get in the way.
Try a CB shop they should help you out
