Default UHF Antenna Installation

G'day guys,

New to the forum! I bought a new navara ST-X about 8 months ago as a work horse.
Loving it so far! I have bought a UHF for it and was wondering if anyone knew where i could get a mount for the antenna off the bonnet?
I don't want to put a bull bar on it because being the king cab with the service body on it it is already so long!
I have had a look around the net but cant find anything to suit.
I also don't want to put it on the tray because the body is removable and i dont want it getting in the way of the door.
I've tried to attach a photo so hope it works
Thanks in advance for any help.
Cheers,
Jake

Welcome to the forum.

If you have a Jaycar in your area, try one of these.

Thanks mate, I already have one of those but because of the shape of the bonnet it doesnt work.
Might need a special one?

Cheers,
Jake

Hi Jake have you thought about a small nudge bar that way you can mount your UHF and a set of spotties if you want latter down the track

Thanks mate,

Might be an option but wasnt too keen on going a nudge bar.
It's looking like it'll be on the tray at this stage.
Surely someone makes a mount for the bonnet.

Cheers,
Jake

What about one of those small light brackets like this - http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/Pro...iversal/219098 that mounts on your number plate mounting on the front? I've seen similar to this used before.
