The Wilson 5000 outperforms all other fiberglass, base-loaded and center-loaded antennas, making it our top recommendation for best-in-class range! Featuring a unique floating coil, the antenna is designed to endure extreme winter icing and won't freeze up or stop working in severe weather. Rated for 5,000 watts AM and 20,000 SSB, the Wilson 5000 can handle serious, high-powered radios. The screw-off coil allows the antenna to separate at the coax-wired base for convenience when entering low-clearance areas or for temporary antenna storage. This trunk-lip Wilson 5000 antenna is a great choice for mounting a high-performance CB onto the trunk of your car, hatchback or other vehicle.

This antenna has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer. For the best alternative, we recommend the K40 Trunk Lip CB Antenna

Model / SKU:Wilson W5000 TL-BK
Recommended for:High-performance, long-range CB use for cars, SUVs and other vehicles with a trunk lip. If you're using a 4-watt stock CB radio, we recommend the Wilson 1000 trunk-lip CB antenna over the more expensive Wilson 5000. The 1000 is cheaper and will provide similar transmit and receive performance. The additional price for the Wilson 5000 is justified if you're running high-wattage radio equipment or if the antenna will be used frequently in extreme winter conditions, as the 5000's floating coil is designed to prevent ice-related performance issues.
Notable Features:Class-Leading Range, Screw-Off Antenna Coil, Reliable in Severe Weather
Rated to 5,000 Watts AM / 20,000 SSB
Compatible with:
All CB radios. The antenna can be mounted to any vehicle with a trunk lip. The mount slides over the edge of the trunk lip, and screws on the bottom of the mount clamp the antenna to the vehicle.
