I borrowed one from a friend (can't remember the model); as i was thinking to go portable; but every time I keyed it in the cab the dash lights would go crazy. The RF it put out definitely effected the electronic system in the Jeep! I decided on the Cobra 75 and a 4' Firestik mounted to my rear bumper. The antenna barely rose above the hardtop and worked good; except it was highly directional for distance reception. I got a spring and quick disconnect; and now the tip is a good 10" above the top and more omnidirectional. Very happy with the reception and xmit; and... not having to mount the CB somewhere in the cab. Don't forget to get the "stud mount" and the "coax antenna cable" (properly paired for your app). The spring helps protect the antenna from overhead obstacles; and the quick disconnect protects against theft. If I'm going to spend 1 minute to hook up the Cobra 75; i can spend 2 seconds to connect the antenna. Long term vibration may effect the quick-conn. I'll post up if it causes any intermittent xmit/recv issues down the line.
