I am trying to swap over all my cb stuff from my truck to my blazer. And i am trying to find a good place to mount my 5ft. firestick with spring. I dont want it on the side where it can get hung up on a tree or something. Where would be a good place to mount it? Ive thought about drilling hole through rear bumper on the drivers side, just to the left of the tailgate so it will miss it when opened, and run it straight through the bumper. But i looked behind the bumper and it looks like any rocks and mud that will be thrown by the tires will slam right into the wire and hookup that goes through the bumper. Will that be ok for the connection or should it be protected somehow?
