i guess both of us can buy a firestik. what size is the biggest and does size really matter. i see them rednecks drive aroundmy school with their huge loud blazer with tiny little wheels and 8' antennas

For offroading purposes, don't use an 8' stainless whip. Depending on the mount you use, you really don't need that tall of an antenna.

I might actually be getting rid of my current antenna after GSW and getting a shorter one. You really only need it to go just above the roofline if you're mounted on the side.

So, a 4' firestik might go up for sale when I drop down to a 3'

Might keep it for a spare though

IMO you should just buy a new ithink it would suite you better (and sell the 4' to me)

You need to figure out your mount before we can do anything

Poke around the XJ forum and see what everybody else is doing, then we can tell you if a Firestik will work.

hanging from the other end and cut probably...CB antenna should be 18' long. could probably make that work, but would have to replace the stud going through the roof I think.

I'd have to see it in person.

Big antenna on the trail ain't cool at all. You can hurt somebody pretty bad if it whips down too hard. 8' whip for bling-bling is okay...8' whip for trail is asking for trouble. If you're going to use a roff-top mount, either use a flexible steel whip (short, like 4-5 feet), or a 3 or 4 foot Firestik with a spring.

A bit of a challenge on an XJ due to the taillight configuration, but do-able.
