Did you ever get one ? I tried and it was out of stock at the time. 

 

I went a different direction with my radios.  I've got commercial radios from Motorola for ham and public safety.

I don't use a CB, too much Arabic/Indian languages on a CB in Canada, but I have a 2-way radio in my truck I keep on ch 5 to talk to local drivers. I used a low-pro (drive-thru edition) magnetic antenna on my back rack. Do not put magnetic mounts on the body of the truck as the magnet will cut the paint. That seems a little overkill for something simple like an antenna mount, you could just bend a piece of thin gauge and make your own for $1. Mount it in the front stake pocket or on the front of the bed. Having it way up high on the third brake light will mean you will need a short antenna which would be bad for range on a CB or you will be smacking them off roofs everywhere. A co worker had 4' antennas mounted at the top of his rack on his Dodge and it looked hilarious and he had to walk in to get a coffee so he took them off.

There are/were other threads on this subject and on installing your CB radio in your truck, but I can't find any of them.  I use to have most of them in my favorites (threads that I was following), but my list is now greatly reduced.  ?
