    replace Stock am/fm Antenna with a CB Antenna

    Hello everyone,

    I have been looking for some time now (with no luck) for a CB Antenna that can replace the factory am/fm Antenna.
    What I have found is "Look a like".
    It is just what I'm looking for other then it is not a functioning CB Antenna.
    Has anyone seen something like this out there or know how to make a mount to replace the factory mount?

    replace Stock am/fm Antenna with a CB Antenna

    EDIT: Links added


    About the closest thing you will find (that I have seen) is a Firestik M-2 mount. You will need a Firestik K-8 cable and an antenna.


    You can also get the mount and cable as a kit, Firestik MK-M2, that is the side mount AND the cable in one package. That would still leave you needing an antenna.


    Or you can get it as a 3 piece kit (cable/mount/antenna) with the following part numbers:

    LG3-M2-x for a 3 foot FireFly antenna

    LG4-M2-x for a 4 foot FireFly antenna

    (x is where the part number would determine colour of antenna, B=black, R=red, W=white)


    You can also get their AR-1A "match maker" antenna splitter that would allow am/fm reception through the same antenna. I have no personal experience with this piece, so I can't speak to the quality or how it works. Their website does say there will be am radio reception issues with a "no ground plane" antenna, which the one mentioned earlier is.



    As an alternative, you could use a ball mount antenna, but in my opinion they look like ass.

    I was looking at the Firestik website and came across some of the parts I mentioned in a previous post...wondering what the quality of reception is like and thought of this thread...


    Charlie, did you go any further with this?

    replace Stock am/fm Antenna with a CB Antenna

    I've read they're not that great... Lower quality for both radio and CB than separate antennae.
