- Technical Details
Now you can install a CB or scanner antenna on the bed rail of your pick-up without drilling holes in the exterior of the vehicle. The mount in this mini-kit is exclusively available from Firestik. It was designed just for you pick-up truck owners.
The mount goes nicely into one of the stake holes found on the bed rail of full size pick-up trucks. The stainless steel bracket drops in and is locked into place with stainless steel hardware. There are no visible mounting holes required.
We've even included a gasket to protect the finish on your truck. You get a quality stainless steel mount and 18 ft (5.5m) of professional grade Fire-Flex coaxial cable (with the exclusive Fire-Ring connector) all in one package!
And, if that isn't enough, you save money by getting it all in a kit!
If it wasn't already obvious, keep in mind you will need tools while installing this mount. A soldering iron for the coax connector, a phillips screw driver, and wrenches will be required.

Great product! I installed it on an 2003 F250 crew cab. It was very easy to install! I paired it with a 5 foot Wilson FGT Fiberglass Antennas. The antenna was super easy to adjust as well. SWR is current just below 2.0 on all channels. I'm new to CB's so the high SWR may be my fault. I'm still playing with things trying to get it lower but radio seems to be working well as is. I also want to say that Walcott was super helpful and such a pleasure to deal with!!!! Great products and super great vender. Thanks!!!!
This is a great product! With the FireRing connector, you can route the coax between the cab and bed and through the firewall. The only drawbacks are SWR (mine shows 1.5 through all 40 channels) and the fact that your stake pocket is taken up. Install looks very professional, and was easier than any other antenna installation I've done.
Mounting this unit on newer trucks which have the "slanted" bed tops will require a "shim" or else the antenna will lean out some. Also when
taking off and on this mount, its a good idea to put some antiseaze grease on the bolts to keep them from stripping the threads off. Other than
some minor problems with SWR from cab this product will hold up good with a 4' fiberglass etc.
