Alright Z3, since I think you're the only person that is really checks this forum...here ya go Would one of these (cobra 19): + one of these (3 or 4 foot firefly with tunable tip): + one of these In conjunction with these two items: (the fold over is for trailering it) mounted here: (actually on top of the bed rail) all work well? I know it overkill for a trail rig but hey, I built a K5, not a Jeep I like to hardwire stuff and would rather not have a magnetic mount. Really long steel whips are awesome for reception but that flail around quite a bit. Also, if I were to just put it on top of the bed rail could I just use a fold over instead of a spring? I could put it forward when it was on the trailer and it'd kick back wards if it hit something on the trail...just a thought. Let me know what ya think.
