X2. I think some people would buy anything if it has "Jk" in front of it.

Made mine too!

Nice job... I can't understand companies charge so much for those mounts... when I get a CB... I'll be doing the same thing.

CB antenna wiring

Where did you run your antenna cable? I'm thinking of putting it through the grommets in the gate, but that might be more difficult than I expect. I would love to see pics of your wiring setup.

Most people run them through the grommets in the tail gate.

Yeah, I noticed that. I found a good write up on another website showing pics of all the steps of the install. Including where to run the PWR wire into the engine bay. I now have a good sense of what to do.

just what the other's have said, i ran the coax thru the grommet on the pass side. I opted for the firestik cable with the mini uhf connector and firering.

Looks Good!

I'm not how good of a ground you are going to get from that 3rd brake light carrier tho. If your SWR is high you might want to get a piece of grounding braid and go from one of those bolts down to where the carrier mounts to the tailgate. I've pulled my ground braid all the way from the mount down thru the hinge and to the frame.

no special grounding and a average swr of about 1.4 with any trouble.
