the best place for an antenna is center if the highest piont on the vehicle but a lot of people put them on tool boxes bumpers fenders just about where ever u can think to put them i have mine on the side of my tool box i would suggest going with an 8 foot whip or a wilson 1000 they talk pretty good and are more forgiving than a fiberglass antenna
shoot first ask questions later

Wilson 1000 on the higest point centered, max talk . In the center of your truck will give you more splatter in all directons, on the side or forward or to the rear will make it more like a beam rather that a 360. Sometimes its hard to aim your truck at who you want to talk to. :yes:

I mounted mine on the top center of my Bronco , in the plastic top. I put backing plated and grounded it to the cab inside.

You need to make sure you have a good ground.

Wilson Silverload or a 5 1/2' Francis Hot Rod. Mine is on the drivers mirror on my big truck and on my F-150 4x4 it is right behind the cab in the center. The other one is a Maco 5/8 wave on top of a 45' tower out by the shop.

my dad prefers 102" stainless steel whip mounted dead center of the front bumper. I had mine (snap in mount) top center of the cab, you have to pull the headliner to do it right but it worked fantastic.
