Firestik's Deep Hood Channel Mount is ideal for vehicles with deep hood channels, such as Chevy or Ford trucks. However, this mount is universal and can mount in either a hood or trunk channel, so long as the mounting surface is flat. This mount can support antennas up to 4' tall and includes a lug-style antenna stud, which requires a terminal or ring-style coax cable.

These stainless steel Firestik mounts attach to the inside channel of your hood or trunk. They won't leave visible mounting holes, because all mounting hardware (also stainless steel) is hidden inside the hood or trunk channel. Mount includes an antenna mounting stud. Many of the newer Ford and Chevy pickups have a deep hood channel. This mount is ideal for those vehicles, but it isn't limited to pickups. It can be used on just about any vehicle with a hood and/or trunk. The bracket measures 2.9" (74cm) from the mounting base to the top of the bracket. The height from the mounting base to the first bend is 2.1" (53mm), so it can be used on channels with depths up to 2" (51mm). The mount may be used with heavy-duty antennas up to 48" (122cm).
I had to do a couple of very minor bends to the mount, but it works and looks great with my 4' Firestick Firefly. It solved the problem of where to mount the antenna with a slide on truck camper which prevented me from mounting the antenna anywhere else. Would suggest it for anyone looking for a hood channel mount for their Tacoma. I
Easy install to 2019 Subaru Forester. Mounted to the passenger side of the hood with factory bolts. Had to remove the plastic inner guard from the car and loosen a single bolt to slide this in. I did have to bend it a little bit to make it straight and to match the lines of the car. Also be sure to add a shim or clear protective covering to both sides of the mount before you fit it to your car to protect the paint. A small square of 3m clear vinyl worked for me. Easy work! Highly suggested. VERIFIED FIT in 2019 Forester.
very good product!!! Yet another excellent shopping experience with Right Channel!!!!!
It is an ok product if it was what I needed. it didn't fit my application because GM went to an overlap style hood. This was not specified in the title or fitment (it just said"GM truck". I'm sure it would have worked otherwise.
Had to do a little modification but it worked out fine. The mount is being used on a Subaru Forester. I went with this mount w/c the universal would have stuck out of the hood another 1 1/2 or so. I still think i would have had to touch it up as well so it wouldn't that be rube n the hood.
