today I custom fabricated a mount for my wilson 1000 CB antenna.
my total CB cost: ALL FREE!
Cobra classic: Grandpas(he was a trucker and has like 50)
Wilson 1000: Grandpa.
Mount plate: Scrap metal pile
Bolts,washers,wing nuts, spray paint: all stuff I found laying around in work shop.

I think it looks good.





And here is some pics on my and my buddy in his TJ when we came back from our night run.
(he got stuck with 31's) I didnt get stuck at all =]

That doesn't hinder your ability to open the hatch?

Looking good BTW

your antenna mount is awesome. if you wanted to, you probably could turn the mount to the right, so it wouldnt get in the way of your hatch, it just means you would have to prob. trim your bumper
