Packing up the RV for a road trip? Just because you’re trading in your pickup for the weekend doesn’t mean you need to give up the airwaves. We rely on the Firestik NGP Side Mount kit for any install that lacks a good metal grounding location. The sleek side mount makes this a streamlined, easy install with the same top-notch performance features you’ve come to expect from Firestik. Kit includes the Firefly antenna which is lightweight, thin and will cut down on wind noise without adding stress to your mount. You’ll also get a 17' coax cable, which attaches to the side mount from the drill point on the inside of the vehicle for a clean, tangle-free installation.
|Model / SKU:||Firestik LG3-M2, LG4-M2|
|Recommended for:||RVs, motorhomes and trailers that lack a metallic chassis. A large metallic chassis (i.e., ground plane) is necessary for standard CB equipment to work properly. However, the no-ground equipment in this kit is specially engineered to work when installed on fiberglass, wood and other non-metal surfaces. For more information on installing NGP systems, please see these NGP Installation Tips.|
|Notable Features:||Very Clean Looking Install, Easily Tunable Antenna, 5 Year Antenna Warranty|
|Virtually all CB radios. The side mount requires the drilling of two holes in the mounting surface and can be installed on surfaces up 0.28 inches thick. Access is required on the inside of the vehicle to secure the mounting bolts and connect the coax cable.|

This quality kit provides an ideal solution when a good vehicle chassis ground isn't available. Whether installed on an RV, trailer, motorhome or boat, this kit will provide superior CB performance in a no-ground environment. All kit components are high-quality parts manufactured by Firestik.
The antennas used in these kits are extremely similar to Firestik's Firefly series, but specially modified for NGP applications. They include a tunable tip, which makes adjusting for peak performance and minimal SWR as simple as turning a screw on top of the antenna.
The kit uses Firestik's molded M-2 "teardrop" side mount. The black plastic shell has a textured finish to give the installation a professional look. All hardware and coax connections are hidden in the inner wall of the vehicle to maintain visual integrity and prevent weather exposure. The actual mounting surface is approximately 3.125" (79mm) x 1.675" (43mm). Outward protrusion is about 1.875" (48mm). This mount comes with all of the required mounting hardware, rubber gasket, metal reinforcement plate, nylon insulator and ground terminal lug, and can be mounted to surfaces up to 0.28 inches (7mm) thick.
The 17' coaxial cable used in these kits is of the highest quality. The NGP cable assembly that comes with this kit utilizes a custom manufactured coaxial cable available only through Firestik. This NGP cable can only be directly attached to Firestik NGP antennas. If a longer cable length is required, the user may add standard RG-58 A/U cable between the radio and NGP cable, preferably in lengths that are multiples of nine feet. Because it is a tuned circuit, the length cannot be reduced without causing non-repairable damage.
If you purchase this kit, please make sure to read these important NGP installation instructions.
