These mounts were designed around the new Jeep Wranglers body style (97-99). The mount allows the antenna to be mounted on either the left or right side of the vehicle. The stainless steel mount and support bracket are made from 12
gauge (0.109") stainless steel. After the mount is installed, there will not be any visible mounting holes. All mounting hardware (also stainless steel) is hidden under the vehicles hood. Even though there were no installations on earlier model years, the mounting concept is very basic and the probability of these mounts working on pre-1997 Jeeps is high. Both mounts are complete with a standard 3/8"-24 threaded antenna mounting stud.
The upper bracket is 2" (51mm) wide and 3" (76mm) long. A slight angle on the inside edge of the bracket follows the angle of the hood line. To mount the bracket, two 1/4" holes need to be drilled in the inner fender lip. A 12
gauge, 2" x 3/4" support plate installs on the bottom
edge of the fender to add to the strength of the mount. We supply you with
1/4-20" stainless steel bolts, nuts and washers to secure the bracket to the
This mount may be used with heavy-duty Firestik antennas up to 48" (122cm).
The SS-J4A has the
K-4A antenna stud with an SO-239, making it compatible with all
coax cables that are terminated with standard UHF PL-259's.
