CB radio antenna mount

I have a 2014 Overland. I purchased the cb antenna mount below planning to mount at the rear on the hatch opening. I find that the only surface that is vertical is plastic. The surface from the taillight up is metal but it is not vertical. Mounting it below the light gives it the correct orientation but it is plastic.

Adding a stiffening plate might help but can't get to the back side to reinforce.

Any advice on how or where to mount my antenna?


Thanks

I used the same bracket, had it on for a year, no problems, the plastic has not moved. Need to tidy up earth, and put inside, to make it neater.

I used 4 small Nuts and bolts, and large washers on the inside for strength. You can run the cable down through the chassis and up through a grommet under spare tire, so no holes drilled in the steel body.

Rgs,

Nigel

Re: CB radio antenna mount

Attached is the photo of how I mounted the antenna to my 2014 Overland.

I added an aluminum plate over the plastics but it didn't seem to help much.

I don't like the cable getting pinched by the rear hatch but it seems to work for now.
