I bought a piece of 1" angle iron about 2 feet long, and cut/drilled it to match the bottom bolts of the stock tire carrier. I then drilled a hole on the top side of it to mount my CB antenna to. Then you just run your CB antenna through the location your 3rd brake light wire goes through, paint it up, and viola! $10 sturdy CB mount! A 4ft antenna sticks up past my top by about 8-9".
I did EXACTLY that but installed it on the upper 2 bolts of the carrier.

Since I now have the LoD rear tire bumper/carrier I needed to get a third brake light on there somehow. So I took the factory third brake light and cut it seven and a half inches from the top. I drilled a 1/2 hole just below where the light has that little cover on the front side and mounted it to the stud at the top of the tire carrier. The stud is there to mount a hi lift jack. (My hi lift is mounted inside of the jeep.) I have a few inches of clearance between the top of the spare and the light. This allows for up-sizing the tires in the future.
The wiring is the same as factory only with added length.

The York is sucking from the airbox. It's cheap, there and I didn't see much of a reason to put one of those small filters in for just the york.
Coming from the york is a 1/2" check valve, 1/2" ID steel braided hose, and 1/2" ID aluminum tubing (heavy stuff .065" wall)
The tubing goes across the engine bay to get rid of the heat from the York.
The tubing then goes to a 3/8" reducer into the manifold which houses all the important mechanical/electrical devices. Directly after the manifold is a ball valve, then a T. One line goes to the connector under the front driver fender (yes I still need to get a cover) and the other goes to the tank.
The tank is somewhere in the 1.5-2 gallon range. I still need to fit a drain valve with a dip tube to pickup from the bottom of the tank. A hose then goes from the tank to a connector inside the jeep.
This one is back here cause I have plans to make a pneumatic potato gun. And I wanted to keep the fact that I had OBA somewhat quiet until it was needed.

I really like this. Looks good. do you have any pics of the interior? I'm curious of how you attached it to the tub. Also, how do you keep it locked so no one can open it from the outside?

Ryan, could you give me some information on the black flexible tubing you're using. I'm working up a similar system and would like to use something like that. How are the fittings attached? Is there a better place to get the tubing and fittings besides the home improvement stores?
