    Hey all. I'll keep it simple. New to mobile, want to install an NMO mount for 2M/440 in the Blazer. My question is, where would you install it? I've got a sunroof in the way up front, and then there are 5 ridges that run lengthwise in the back, so there's really no way to center it on the roof. Should I just off-set it one direction or another and call it good, or should I consider some other option? Thanks.

    It doesn't have to be dead center. In any case, I'd mount it behind the luggage rack.

    Exactly what Alan said, just offset it.

    Thanks gents, I think that's probably the best option. I don't think it will be too noticeable that its off-center.
