No drilling or special tools required for this set up. The K40 is popular for its incredible transmit and receive performance as well as its versatile options for installation. You can choose to attach it to your truck lip with the included mount or permanently install it on your vehicles roof (drilling required) with the included hardware - the choice is yours. The twist-to-remove features allows the antenna to separate at the base, ideal if you’re entering a low-clearance area. The workmanship on this unit can’t be beat, and it's backed by a five-year guarantee from K40.
|Model / SKU:
|Car, van, SUV and pick-up truck owners who want a performance CB antenna. The twist-to-remove feature makes this antenna a great option for people who often enter low-clearance antennas. The whip and coil can be easily stored away while the coax and mount remain in place.
|Strong Transmit/Receive Performance, Versatile Mounting Options, Twist-to-Remove Base
|All CB radios. The trunk-lip mount allows the antenna to be mounted to any car with a trunk lip. For permanent roof installations, you'll need to drill a hole in the mounting surface with access from below. For installation with vehicle headliners, the headliner must be removed prior to drilling. The coax cable connects to the antenna at a very low angle, so it's possible to re-install the headliner without noticing the coax or antenna mount post-install.

|58" K40 CB Antenna
18' of shielded coax cable
This lip-mounted CB antenna from K40 provides a number of attractive features, including twist-off removal of coil and whip, a long 57" steel whip antenna and an extended five-year manufacture's warranty. The antenna can be mounted permanently on the roof (drilling required), OR on the trunk lip for a secure but less permanent installation. Our pictures show a rooftop mount, but trunk-lip installations are easy with the included trunk-lip adapter.
K40 guarantees this antenna will work better than your current model or it will refund your money! (See manufacturers site for full details.)

Installed on a Honda Pioneer 700. Actually got swr down to 1.3 across all channels mounted to the rear bumper. Using president Johnny 3 radio.
Installation took less than an hour including trimming/tuning with SWR meter on my Hyundai Elantra. Works very well with my Cobra 75 WX ST CB. I am able to send/receive up to 13 miles distance loud and clear, which really is impressive. Right Channel Radios had the information and equipment I needed to get my CB up and running. Thank You!
This purchase is a replacement for this exact model I bought 20 years ago. Its been installed on several vehicles over those years. The last 8 years I have it on a Dodge Grand Caravan. I have installed it on the front hood on the drivers side. I can easily remove the whip for parking garages or the car wash. I had the signal checked professionally and it works very well in the configuration.
I love it I have owned one in the passed love that you can take it off and get it out of the way. Wish it still had a dust cover
