Hi In a slight change of direction I am wanting to install a Cb Antenna mount to my Jeep WK 2007. Going to be having some weekends away in the wilderness with other jeep and land rover owners. What is the preferred type of Antenna mount for a WK ? Has anyone used a clamp type on the roof rail ?

I'd be more likely to use a mag mount. Generally you want an antenna to be mounted ON a flat piece of metal so it has a good "ground plane". Short of a permanent thru the roof installation a mag mount will be the closest to that.

A Wilson 5000 magnet mount fit perfectly centered in the rear of the vehicle. The coax is just long enough to reach the console. I mounted an Anytone AT6666 using RAM Mount parts with an anchor on the front passenger seat bolt.

I ended up using some 16mm stainless tube with a 6mm washer welded into it. Then I removed one of the roof rail bolts and replaced it with the tube and a longer stainless bolt. Then I fitted a roof rail type mount and mounted the Antenna.
