Where to mount CB antenna on JK

I just got the JK and want to put my cb in it. Where do I mount the ant. Is there metal under the bumper to be able to get a ground? I don't really want to drill into the side of the body if I don't have to.

I looked at the spare tire carrier. It looks like I might be able to mout it there. I'll try it over the weekend and reply in case anyone else has the same question.

Steel square tube from Home Depot. Mounted on spare tire carrier, drilled and bolted to the side; mounted flushed to the door. Got a L shaped antenna mount from a truck stop. High mount gives you the best SWR reading.
