    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.

    Four foot Firestick on the ARB with a detachable mount. Works pretty well.
