Cb antenna mounting and cb install

CB ANTENNA MOUNTING AND CB INSTALL
What would be the best choice for an antenna and mounting the antenna without the metal roof for reflection. Is there a better brand to buy for the wrangler install? How about mounting a rig, where? Thanks Ron

depends on use a bit. if its to high and you wheel were it can hit things, lower mounted is better. if its street use and you want the best signsl higher is better. There is a lot of threads here andpics on how people mounted all of it. I like the over head mounted head unit. but that can be more work and or cost depending howand if you can dothe work.

I mounted my antenna to my spare tire carrier then put a grounding strap from the inside of the tailgate to the inside of the tub. I have a 4' antenna which sticks up at least a foot above my hard top. My range is roughly 20 miles. I know this because I've sat in my driveway, heard activity on the radio and communicated with the transmitter, verifying his/her location. The farthest I've gotten is 22.5 miles as the crow flies.

Take a look at the Electrical section. Several threads on the issue and lots of opinions.
