4ft firestik mounting with flush taillights?

Simply put, I want to mount this antenna on my Jeep, but I dont have the stock taillights (I know a lot of people just use a 'behind the light' mount). Does anyone else have any decent mounting locations? Im curious to see other setups to give me some ideas.

Spare tire carrier is a popular location.

If you have rear corners, you could just weld a tab on. If not, angle iron and 2 minutes with a grinder can achieve the same effect (but you will have to make some mounting holes).

A bumper mount is rarely a good choice for the typical length CB antenna.

I just drilled a couple holes for the regular mount and ran the coax cable through the top.

went to the local home depot. bought some angled steel. cut to fit, drilled the holes and mounted it to the snubber mounts on the tailgate that I no longer use. Works like a charm. cost 3.00

Yep, angle iron, and 3 holes. Mount right above the tail light, or in the middle on the tail gate, which ever you like. Done

If you don't have the means to cut and drill it, probably anyone who does even a little bit of metal work will likely have some scrap angle iron laying around, for a few beers I'm sure they would drill the holes for you in the angle iron, and the jeep Or as mentioned, weld it on if you have corner armor.
