    Ha! That's the thing . I bought a cheap CB but an expensive antenna. I have a feeling the ciax cable was messed up.

    Yeah, if pinched or forcibly twisted, it surely could have been messed up. Did you re-drill the hole in the bracket? Is the bracket properly grounded? (When in doubt: sand/remove some paint, add grounding screw with grounding strap, and if possible ground it to the frame.... Sorry, if I didn't stress ground enough :devil::devil: ). Once your bracket and antenna ground is figured out, rest should be cake.
    For good measure there is a diagram of antenna to bracket connection/ assembly.

    I'm rocking something a bit different, due to a fact that 3rd gens have tighter space between tailgate and bedside. Some people experienced issues with chipping paint on their tailgates when using mounts like yours (and similar), so I've decided to go with trunk/hood lip NMO mount (and NMO antenna).

    Thank you sir. I got a uniden 520 pro xl off ebay for cheap and it's working fine. I just haven't bothered in connecting the Wilson 2000 antenna to it. I should get some new coax cable before I do that I suppose.
