    I just did and they look nice in my opinion. I got the kit at a local truck stop which included the mirror mounts, dual wiring and 3' whips. If I had pictures I would post them. I recommend getting springs for them though if you park in the garage! Later

    Hey Nebraska, quick pointer that will let your radio get out farther and help it last longer. Take it to a CB shop and get the swr's adjusted it will cost no more then $10. Duel ante's usually run a higher swr and need to be set in sequence with each other. PS I also like the way duels look on a p/u makes it look tougher. HEEHAW

    A couple dollars more and you could buy a basic SWR meter and do the job yourself over and over and over for free on anything you want. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I actually did this at first and got a good signal but the problem is it really stressed out the mounts on the door and after a period of time loosened up my mirror mounts. A buddy of mine who runa a CB shop tlkaed me into a fender mount but I only put one on the passenger side as sitting there watching my cb antenna flex in the wind in front of me would drive me nuts.
