CB antenna mounts?

I searched, but I guess I don't have the correct wording.

I am looking into a permenant mount antenna for my CB, like suggestions on what works well, and where to get them. I found some stuff on Walcottcb.com and don't know which one will work with my application.
Thanks in advance,
Jesse

Oh, I'm in a WJ if it's not already in my sig.

Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?

Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.

Thanks alot I did find everything I needed, I just wasn't sure if the door jam mount was the correct mount. Me007gold, thanks for the pic, it solidified my thought.

Buc, thanks list of options on the search function.

Ask QuadraTokn if he has any pics of his. We just screwed in a piece of metal above his tail light and the mount goes towards the back not the side. Just mount the antenna to that.

I think, Walcott is where I will be ordering from.

Isn't the hood mount kind of a distraction? looks good though!

This was a temp mount. I had it cut out for $5. I could not see it out the rear view mirror. I just used some washers in between the metal and the body to make it level and then self tapping screws. Siliconed to prevent water in the holes.

I originally was going to use a hood mount. I installed it and it wobbled so much I took it off. I never drove with it on but I dont think it would have been very secure. I was afraid it would rip the metal up if it got snagged on something. Sitting in the cab with it mounted for a few minutes annoyed me as well.

They try to get ya with all the extras at walcott.

Is the spring around the base of the antenna worth the couple of extra dollars?
