    unless you get in an accident :cool:

    the driver area "cockpit" is highly engineered to keep items like that out of the way of flailing legs.

    Here's mine mounted in the rear storage compartment.... You need to turn around to adjust it but once its set, you're good to go.

    What kind of antenna is that and where did you get it because I am looking for one for my CB but I have a bed cover so I want to be able to fold it down when I have my bed cover on. So is that something that your antenna would allow for?

    I just keep mine under the seat, put a long enough whip that I can pull it out and adjust it if necessary. No modification necessary. :thumbsup:

    Wilson silver load 3ft with a folding 90 degree quick release. Mount was purchased here from a forum member making them. Not sure if it'll fit under the bed cover like mine is. The end by cab is a bit higher than the bedrail. Depends on the bed cover you have I suppose. Here's another pic........

    Hmmm. That might work. Do you remember who you bought it from. I would like to pm them and see if they have another one laying around. It might be worth a shot.
