    My antenna cable is routed around the heater duct at the front of the console by the firewall (CD changer and other wiring along the kick panel above the console made routing in that location impossible), then along the driver side of the kick panel, out through the accelerator cable grommet (cut a small cross in it where it already started to split, sealed with black silicone), then along the fender, along side the wire harness, then to the mount.

    Hood mount…definitely a hood mount.

    Use a commercial low band NMO antenna.

    Front:


    Back:



    Inside (subject to change):


    I think in the last two years, that Jeep has had 5 different radios in it…I'm still changing them up. It currently has 3 radios in it, a Cobra 25, Anytone dual band (that's getting replaced by a NIB M1225 and either a VX-4000 w/remote head or an Astro Spectra), and then a SM50 in the back for the tracker.

    Is the body mount compatible with CB? I don't use a HAM or FM or anything like that. In Tennessee we have cell phones. That technology might not have made it to Texas yet!!! (I'm just kidding) but I only need an antenna for the little cheap-o cb I use on the trail.

    Standard ball mount. Radio shack used to sell them. Don't know if they still do. Fits any antenna with 3/8x24 threads.

    Yeah it's just a standard 102" whip on a ball mount. Now the ball mount and spring are heavy duty HUSTLER... I am feeding it with a ICOM antenna antenna tuner. It lets me use an inexpensive antenna for 40 meters through 6 meters. I just click the mic and a couple of seconds later SWR is tuned and I'm talking, or listening.

    The down side to this mount is that when off road you have to be careful not to rip it off on something. It would have to be something big though.

    HAM radio is a hobby but I also installed this HF/VHF/UHF radio as part of my hurricane escape vehicle strategy. Cell towers may be down (power or physically) in a disaster my setup is capable of world wide communications directly from my Jeep, and that includes while I'm moving to safety.

    Of course you don't have to use a 102" whip you could put the firestik in there as well.

    I prefer antennas to not be any longer than 48". Just me though. That's why I run the Larsen low band antenna on my XJ. NMO is a commercial mount that was initially designed by Motorola back in the 60's for roof and trunk application. The antennas and much lighter than fiberglass antennas and it translates to less stress on the mount for two reasons, weight and the moment is much closer to the mount compared to a typical CB antenna.
