Last Fall I installed a all-band IC-7000 Ham Radio in my Jeep:
I decided it was finally time to put the HF antenna on. I found the following two products:
And since one mounted on the left and the other on the right, I figured i'd get them both.
Here's a pic of them both on the Jeep:
Here's the Teraflex:
and here's the CFE Products:
Here is my Diamond Trunk Mount w/dual band from the previous install:
The dual bander has worked out really well for the last year. Notice how the black bar lined up perfect! (no, I didn't paint it, it was built like that!)
Here's a close up of the outbacker in the CFE mount. It presses just slightly against the spare tire (it's a thick antenna)
I still need to pick up some coax and build out the teraflex mount. I also plan to run a dedicated ground to both mounts. The teraflex mount is very well built. If they made the teraflex mount for both sides I woud definitly run them on both sides. I think long term I''ll have the outbacker on the Teraflex and a FireStick CB antenna on the CFE.
Here's the final shot:
This weekend I should be able to tune up the antenna. Stay Tuned!
