Interestingly, he said a few weeks before I showed up the Dallas Jeep club brought in about 15 trucks for him to install radios into. I'm no expert on CB, but I asked him about buying the longest antenna. He suggested a 3' length whip type antenna and said there would not be much to gain by going longer and it would be more likely to be damaged. It's mounted to the top bracket of the spare tire carrier and extends about 12" - 18" above the vehicle. I've never tested the range, but it works great for convoys and trails.

Yeah those long whip antennas are not practical offroad unless you are in the desert and if you drive in town or park in a garage they get trashed.
