Does anybody have any suggestions on an antenna mount? I will probably end up going with something like the 4xGuard mount, but I want something where the antenna doesn't stick out a lot. I know the most effective location in the center of the roof. Is there one that has a magnetic base and a removable antenna? What about mounting it parallel to one of the roof rails and hiding it, would that be effective?

Just ordered a Wilson 5000 CB antenna. I want to mount it on the roof for best performance, but its easily removable so I dont have to leave it up there all the time.

Dude your 18?, have a killer WK and live in the best part of the World if you ask me, (Superior side of the UP) for god sake man dont bail on what you have spent this much time and money on making right. bad goes to worse get a older car or van and store this one for the rainy day when you will need it again.... Just my .02 tho..

I would love to do that. I love this jeep. Its just a money factor now. College is expensive and I own a dedicated wheeler now which I do most of my wheelin' with. The gas mileage hurts a lot too.

If I was near you I'd slap you in the face....ha just kidding man, I understand the money thing. but like others have said and are thinking, you have one of the best looking wk on this forum and you will probably regret selling it once its gone. I'd buy it now if i was closer. What you looking at getting if it sells?

I dont know. Either a truck that gets decent gas mileage and can tow, or an all-wheel drive car
