Some people will complain that it's only a .380, but it will stop someone in their tracks.

I'm very pleased with it so far:

I've shot one of those a few times. They're quite fun. .380 is better than not having one at all. I get crap for my LCP at times, but I still dare someone to stand in front of it.

This is a great little inexpensive CC and very accurate. LC9 380 or 9mm.

Looks great. I can't really tell that it's smaller in the pic.

I finally got around to mounting my 19DX IV up front and my 102" in the back. I went with a 12" mount bolted to the rear bumper and cut a slot in the rear bumper fascia for it to slide through. The whip has a nice standoff distance from the back of the ZJ so it doesn't hit no matter how hard it swings.

Eventually I'm going to pull the VIC display from the center console (AWD doesn't need it lol) and mount the CB in it's place. Mounting it here I can also hold a drink between the CB and the seat like it's an extra cup holder.


The 4 holes next to it are from the PO. I routed the wire that way so I would still have easy access to the fuse holder. The cable and wire run into a hole in the carpet next to the seat(left by PO) and into the wire channels to run to the battery and the mount respectively.


I checked out a lot of mounts and locations and decided to go with this. The standoff distance between the whip and the ZJ protect the paint (no tennis ball needed) and also allows me to open my lift gate without the whip being in the way. I've pulled the tip of the whip back and down well below the roof-line and released it and it made no contact with the Jeep.

Adjusted my exhaust hangers to kill the rattles, and ordered up a Novak-Adapt cable shift linkage kit. Time to get rid of the factory s**t style rattly junky linkage.

It's not in the way of opening the hatch at all?

It looks like the cut out for the tail lights would just miss it.

I mounted my 102" with a heavy spring on the body behind the fuel door seems to do great there with no problems and its easy to bend it over and slide it under the roof rack for parking garages and all. Has the military Humvee antenna look when tied down

I finally put in a new passenger front window today broke it on a trail now just need to get it tinted

And soon drop in a built 360 similar to this one I put in my 95 ram

Edit: Not sure why I have 3 of the same pic but that's not my 98 its my 97 where lift is coming off and going on 98 (maybe)

No. The mount itself is 12" long. I picked it up at http://www.walcottcb.com/fm121-flat-...ath=28_353_434

I pulled off the rear bumper fascia and mounted it to the metal bumper using 4 grade 8 bolts and nuts below the taillight. I mounted the whip to the mount first and used a c-clamp to hold it to the frame while I positioned it so it would be inside the area on the hatch cut out for the taillight.


When the hatch is all the way up the whip barely touches it. It might barely touch a little here and there as it opens but it doesn't bend all over the place like I have seen others do.
