    CB antenna

    I'm waiting on my evo cd antenna mount to come in. I got my 4 ft firestik antenna in today and I was looking at how it would fit in the garage. Well mounted on the top passenger side of the fire carrier mount it would rub the ceiling.. Ugh, but if I flip it to the lower driver side she'll fit. I'm sure it'll effect the signal strength, but would it be worth it to get the 3 footer? I have a cobra 75 WX ST.

    Why not take it off when you’re not using it. Really no point in driving around everyday with a cab antenna on.

    I leave my antenna off until I’m going out wheeling because it will not fit in the garage.

    Sounds like a great reason to build a Bigger Garage. Or get a quick disconnect. Me, I just keep it on hand tight..... comes right off.

    So simple. Do you pull the cable inside the tailgate when it's not used?

    Ordered the quick discount and a spring. Added assurance here in East Tennessee. I also realized that I forgot to order the stud mount as well. Thank you all for your help!

    No you can just leave it hanging. Just depends how much cable to have outside the gate and where you routed the wires.

    I just let mine hit the garage door. Hasn’t broken yet. Annoyingly loud thwack when it slaps the aluminum. Meh.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
