    This is how I used to have mine. It in the driver-side front corner of the bed.
    A little hokey, but worked well.

    BAMF x3. Looks and fits good, & plenty strong! Worth the wait when ordering.

    I use to have my cb antenna on my ARB bumper

    I now use a Wilson 1000 magnet mount antenna.
    It is on my tool box.
    The SWR is way under 2.

    Four foot Stik on the bumper I built. Great SWR. Doesn't flop around. Doesn't get in the way.

    How I built that corner of the bumper to allow for coax connection. I used a 90 degree coax elbow in there also.

    Id like to be able to see mine I think, I go through some trails that are half the width of the truck bush wise if I am lucky. So id like to be able to see if the antenna gets caught or not :)

    Yea you can easily accomplish that with this mount. I see mine every time it swings around. My spring is stiff enough that it won't fly all over the place
