    Go to Gigaparts web site. They have an antenna mount especially for Super Duty trucks that attaches to the front fender. As for my Yaesu dual band rig, I use a glass mount antenna on the rear glass. Works adequately well, can hit the repeater 35 mlles distant. I have a hard tonneau on my truck that looks nice, but is a PITA to take off when I tow the fifth-wheel RV. Towing is another reason why, in addition to garage door clearances, that I don't have a big screwdriver antenna on the back of the pickup. Just an ATAS -120 on a fender mount.

    This inexpensive "CB" mount works very well for me and it only cost around $20-. It's stainless, stealth, and is adjustable.

    I have a tarheel II mounted on a home made mount. Looks like the pic on the breedlove page with the camper top. Except mine is located up next to the cab. I made it out of 2" x 6" x 3/16 flat stainless, counter sunk the holes for hex head flat machine screws also stainless. This would allow you to still use your cover. My ant performs great and I have talked all over the world on it with 100 watts. Good luck 73 Lynn W4DLT
