the whole thing is one unit yeah it did come with the mounting bracket but i just took out the ash tray and 12v and put velcro on it...its not gonna come off and if it needs to come out it will be as simple as just pulling it down and sliding it out
and its a cobra 19 ultra III
and yeah i didnt know where else to mount the antenna so i just put it there for now

It needs something to go around it like trim to cover up the mess.

I thought about putting mine there, but I throw my change in the ash tray.

So I went with right underneath it, which looks better, IMO, and since we have the same dash, I'll be a *****:

I used to run the 4 foot hick sticks right behind the cab, but broke them off trees and garages and such, I run a 2 footer just like your antenna and get a solid 6-8 mile range thru crappy terrain. Much better on the highway

Basically if you end up stickin with that antenna you'll be fine, depends what you use it for
