and Cobra 75 radios fit the bill nicely and are our two best-selling off-road CB models. We also recommend stainless steel mounting hardware and RG8X coax, which is beefier and better shielded than standard grade coax.

Mounting Considerations: If available, a vehicle-specific mount is typically the best option in terms of integration and convenience. We stock custom mounts for Jeep Wranglers, FJ Cruiser, Hummers and Toyota T100s. We also have a large number of Ford, Chevy/GMC and Dodge hood mounts in our CB Pick-up Truck category. General hood channel and rear bumper/tire carrier installations are also popular. If mounting on a swinging tire carrier, make sure that it's properly grounded to the chassis, as many are insulated. As always, the longer your antenna -- and the higher up you mount it -- the better your range will be.
The three-way CB mount is one of the most popular mounting options because it's so versatile. You can use it to easily mount a CB antenna to a vertical or horizontal bar, or to any vertical surface. Recommended for antennas up to 5' tall. Learn More
