Mounts and fits as expected, easy to align and install. Very sturdy and nicely finished to look good and ensure reliable antenna performance.
As described im going to use as mount for amber led light pod for surf fishing on the beach just ordered another one for passengers side 5 STARS
Once you receive the mount, be sure to grind away as much of the powder coating as possible where metal-to-metal contact is made. Also run #10 or larger ground wire to inside taillight mounting hardware using star washer to dig into the metal and land on both ends with ring lugs. Find available hole in frame supporting cab and engine for other end of ground wire. Test results with nanovna or other device to measure SWR. Should be less than 1.5:1.
If you have a Leer Canopy plan on doing som serious grinding on this bracket to get it to work.
I’ve been running a cb radio for years, and this is easily the most well made antenna mount I’ve come across. You need to drill into your truck, but it’s a simple process that anyone with a drill can do. It includes the hardware to attach to the truck, but does require the tail light to be removed.
**Installation with a camper shell isn’t a perfect fit*** but is manageable. I’ve got an ARE overland shell and the mount is very close, but required a slight adjustment one mounted to the truck for a great fit.
Overall, HIGHLY recommend this mount. I cannot say enough good things about the product.
