CB antenna with Tool box

What is the best way to mount a 4' firestik CB antenna in my bed or on my truck with a tool box?

If you don't mind drilling holes on your toolbox I've seen guys screw a mount right into the part of the toolbox between the box and the cab. That's probably what I'm gonna do when I get around to mounting mine. I think I'll use something like this mount. Hope that helps!

Of course you could always get the hood channel mount from www.gmdieseltech.com That thing is super clean looking. Just depends on where you want your antenna.

I use the front right stake bed hole. Have an antenna mount which secures in the stake hole and extends out several inches allowing the tool box to sit flush on the bed rails. I think I got it from a WA local with web site. Have a 3' Firestick on my set-up. I belive they also sell Firestick's??? Hope this helps.

Ive got 3' firesticks mounted in the way that WAskier mentioned. it looks great is real sturdy and I know of at least 2 people that have followed suit and love it. i get a lot of compliments too. mine are black with red caps and my truck is grayish, silverbirch to be exact. my buddies are white with white caps on a white dodge and they look sick too. if i didnt have dial up id take some pics and post em.

don't forget to put a spring on it! try to find a good stainless spring as the chrome ones rust in about a week.

i had mine mounted with a mount that clamps on to like a mirror bar. just take off one side and bolt the other to the tool box. works like a charm.

now i have the flush with bed rails size tool box and havent mounted the antenna yet, or the CB for that matter which is a whole nuther matter with that frickin console.
