CB radio installed! Where to mount the antenna?

Finally found the right add-a-fuse connector. I tapped into the small fuse box above the petals and attached the ground wire to one of the screws for the fuse box. I tucked my wires back behind the panel below the steering wheel and used industrial velcro to mount the CB receiver. Now its time to find the right antenna mount and location for the antenna. If you have any suggestions for that Id love to hear them.

I have the same radio and I haven't figured out where to put it yet. I thought about where you mounted it but I am worried my knee would hit it. Do you notice it while driving?

Btw I have the saguaro mount and firestik antenna. The antenna has great reception and the mount fit and finish is top notch.

Awesome. I will probably be moving mine there tomorrow.

I ran the cable through the door sills, under the driver's seat and then through the center console. As for the back door, I run it under the gasket and down to the gap in the floor. Fits nicely! I can take pictures for you tomorrow if you'd like.

Re: CB radio installed! Where to mount the antenna?

When you run the antenna, if you follow the sills then over the wheel well (inside the truck) you can bring it out behind the drivers side tail light. There's already a hole for it thats coverd by a rubber gasket.

As far as the CB mount, I'd be concerned about hitting it with my knee as well. If you pull the cubby out on the left of the steering wheel and cut the back off it that model should fit right in. I have a smaller unit and had to make a bezel for it.

The antenna mount I made from a piece of angle. I think it's pretty much the same as the Saguaro mount. The pic is from the test fit. It's the same color as the truck now.(And straight)

I have a write-up on JF. And here's a link for the antenna mount.

Fatfreddy you have the same cb as us. How did you mount the mic to the radio and the radio to the console? That looks really clean
