Wilson FGT Silver Load Hood Kit

I did not notice until after I installed the mount and antenna connection that I had put a dent in the finder. Over wise it works great.

Wilson FGT Silver Load Hood Kit

Components of kit OK. But hood mount does NOT fit Ford 2012 F150. I ordered another mount after getting this one.

Farmer Brown
Great inexpensive kit with a very tough compact radio.

I have kept the small Uniden Radios on hand for around 20 years; I used them as back up units for the big truck and used them on a car for vacation. I have ran 6 or 8 of these Silver Loads and have a few extras on hand now. One of the best! I plan to use the hood kit as a permanent antenna mount on a Ford pickup. It's made of solid!

Installed on 2001 Ford Explorer Sport

I bought this to use with my peaked/tuned Cobra 29 NW Classic ltd. I got the 4 foot. SWR is below 2 on every channel. Not sure about my range as none of my friends have very good set ups on their CBs. They all have cheap walmart cbs and antennas, and their equipment has neither been peaked nor tuned. I am using a heavy duty spring with the antenna. I recommend that too, especially if you are using a taller antenna. It's good for low tree branches on the trail or drive thru for fast food.
