That works too.
The one that Martin posted is closer to the one that I'm actually using on my 40. He is correct -- it doesn't mount to the hood. It mounts to the lip just below the hood, and sticks out of the seam, sandwiched in between the lip and the hood. There is plenty of room for it there.

I actually have mine mounted on the passenger side, not the driver side, but you could do either.

You guys are awesome! Makes me glad I forked over the extra dough for a clean rig. (Hand raised in air: "I promise to not cut/drill or otherwise deface the rig (aka GYBZ)"

I'm going for the bracket on the spare tire rack like MDH.

Actually mine is the green soft top rig. Antenna on the spare is Shawn's (CardinalFJ60).

LETSROLL-

Actually, there is no good place to mount a CB antenna on that rig, it is worthless, you may as well sell it to me cheap... I'll be over in the morning and take that miserable 40 off your hands and bring you a home HAM setup.

OMG it's an antenna freakout! I've seen a pic of one here that looked right. Your cb ant. should be as centered on your vehicle as possible with as much of the antenna above the highest point of the vehicle as possible.

Be careful with center or top loaded antennas.

Great info on finding the right antenna and installing it.

I mounted the antenna on the spare tire mount of my '78 and ran the coax into the truck along the gap where the hardtop meets the tub. I caulked it in place. It's been that way for 20 years and the cable is not chafed or worn.
