    Default cb mount on 03 silverado

    Im looking for a place to put my cb antenna. Im going to be getting a fiberglass tonneau cover so i cant pit it on the bed rails and i don't want to put it on the outside of the bed. I want to put it across from the fm radio antenna. I found a bracket thats made to fit there but im not sure what type of antenna fits in it. Here is the mount,

    Any advice on this or other mounting places would be awesome.

    Alot of your mounting options are going to depend on what type of cb antenna you are mounting, and then length of the antenna. Each type/length is going to have a different sweet spot on the vehicle for getting good reception and swr settings. You can always get a good heavy duty two or three base magnet mount and mount it to the top of the cab of your truck.

    I had a mount similar to that on my BelAir, but located in the trunk gap. It worked great with a 64" whip, but I'm not sure you'd want to put that in the front of your truck. Like abn75 said, the magnet mount antennas work great, such as a K40 or Wilson.
