    I thought about front hood also but I was thinking about it hitting my windshield. So I hope this is not a stupid question but do you get 2 antennas One for each side any case I would split the difference with you

    I've never had it hit my windshield...

    The two antennae thing is used by semi trucks sometimes, makes the radio directional.

    If you are planning on hard mounting a FirestikII without a spring, it will not hit the windshield.

    My antenna is 4' with a spring and driving on Fins N Things, there were some rocks in the way...:anonymous:

    The CBI hood mounts can be used for CB antenna or ditch light mounts.
    I headed the ditch light mount and moving the antenna to the rear of the bed.

    You can get the generic, "mycoxaflopin" or there's a new one that hit the market, "mydixadril". Guaranteed to not disappoint.
