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.
Arrived fast. Fit snug on my truck and loved the look. Drilling was easy and hardware included was a plus. Overall happy with the purchase. Great buy for anyone looking for a mount.
This CB Antenna was easy to install, seems very sturdy thus far, and doesn't scrape or touch the tailgate at all. Installed on a 2021 Toyota Tundra.
