Wilson 1000 hard mount middle of the roof.
Run your wires under your carpet and up the b pillar. This install requires the most amount of work since you have to take the headliner off but IMHO the best and strongest setup there is.

I saw one in Texas mounted at the top of the lift hatch - similar to the way you would do a trunk mount on a sedan. I imagine it went under the carpet and then up the rear pillar. Thought it was nice b/c no hole in the roof.

ARB Bull bars have an antenna mount tab on them.

I put mine in the back (pre arb). Built it and it only cost me about $5 in materials from home depot and it has held up really really good (so far).

I run the K40 3' antenna, has always been real great... as I recall they will replace it if you ever break it. I think they are available in 2',3',4',5' and 6' mabey others too!

I've got a 3fter mounted on my bullbar. I ran the cable through the grill, under the battery tray then around the perimeter of the engine compartment, then through the firewall on the driver's side.
