Great to know about the bulkhead and patch cables. I do plan to attach the whips to the rack (sounds fun).

With our tires and lifts we are already garage limited, the rack alone eliminates most of the rest. Even at home. For now I will typically not have the antennas attached. For the NMO mount I have on my bumper now I cover it when not in use. I carry the short antenna so I could attach it any time and attach the long one for trips. I will have to get a new CB antenna that does the same, or a fold down. Long term I would like to have a taller home garage with a set of pulley mounted hooks to take the roof rack off.

I will also soon need to get a small car for daily use.
