Looking for a specific example (make/model) of a mount that works on an FJ60 to mount an antenna either up on the hood or back on the rear hatch somehow. I don't really want a mag mount (since those raised sections of the roof make it hard to get one to stick well) and I don't want to drill a hole in my roof.

Post a link if you can! :beer:

Thanks, I'm hoping to stay under $100 for mount and antenna.

Where do you mount this one?

Rear Hatch mount here

This has been working for me the past few years. I usually just run a little Comet SBB1 whip antenna. It works great.

You can get a mount, similar to this, and an antenna, from MFJ Enterprises for under under$100. Mine is mounted on the drivers side rear hatch. The antenna length (single or dual band etc) may determine how high to place the mount.

If you go with a hood mount, I'd recommend mounting it on the opposite side as the am/fm radio antenna to avoid the antenna from hitting each other while driving/wheeling.
