    Hey guys, I'm looking into getting a cb for my truck. Do you guys think the antenna(s) would look out of place on my truck or not? if not, where should I mount them/it? I'll attach a couple pics to help you guys out. Thanks!

    well since you have the bed cover, your kinda limited, you could get the magnetic whip and mount it to the roof

    you can buy a mirror mount like us truckers use. take the back plate off and mount it to the side of the rear bumper requires drilling 4 small holes. about 3/8 hole size. just decide what ant you will be going with if you go with a k 40 or wilson3000 watch the clearance from the coil pack and the body normaly the coil sits about at the rear light no need to put duals on expect dor looks they will be so close they will cross recieve and cause your radio be work worse not better. what radio are you going to go with.

    also buy only they closes length coax you need buying 18 ft when you need 6 mess with it also. and any left over needs to be snaked out~~~~~like so not coiled a coiled coax will mess up you swrs which mess with your radios power in and out

    or not drill into the bumper and instead get a mount that will just use and already bolt

    ok hazard-maine no need for names. its a point to mount no different than drilling holes in your frame for nerf bars. guy has a truck with a cover looking for spots to mount and does not want a mag mount. so he is limited he could by a crap looking hood mount that mounts to the fender body bolts stick up through the hood and to me looks like **** or he could try a dozen other ways not need to bash an idea because you personal dont want to add things to the outside
