    No. You want to replace the stock antenna with a 2-way antenna?

    That goes
    Not really, I saw your response to this guys post and thats why I asked if you were sure it would work. The oem antenna mounts to the fender but that item didn't look like it would do that.

    Personally I'd probably end up doing what my dad did back in the day and mount it somewhere behind me with a tennis ball.

    Depending on the wavelength will determine the length of antenna.

    Swing through your local truck stop and see what is offered as for mounts. Read a little further back in this thread and there are websites suggested that are good to look through

    That’s damned clean. I’d be Leary of that stiff fiberglass antenna. I’m a believer in the Wilson base loaded style. It’s outperformed the 106” stainless whip I previously.
