I bought everything needed for my CB Antenna, Mounting Braket, Spring, and 18ft of cable.

This is the mount and cable:
$23.95

This is the antenna:
$17.95

Spring:
$12.95

The How to for mounting these is here:

I am getting rid of it because it made a whistle noise at 40-50 mph. If you have a roof rack, or MT tires I am certain you will not hear it.

I will sell the whole kit for $30 plus shipping, or trade for a set ot stock side steps.

After looking at the antenna, I bet the reason for the whistle is because it's a fire fly. I use a normal Firestik II on a spring mount and have no problems. I bet the lighter antenna has something to do with it.

I replaced it with on of those through the glass models. I reception is not nearly as good, but it does work. No whistle
