Howard, the antenna mounts on a 3/8-24 thread. So any place on the Jeep where you could mount such a threaded stud, you could mount (and ground) the antenna. Heck, you could put a stud on a plate held by suction cups and stick the suction cups to the jeep, and then just run a grounding wire to some place on the Jeep frame. But you probably wouldn’t want the Jeep in motion with such a setup.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
CB antennas commonly mount on 3/8-24 studs, so any CB antenna mount would seem to be a solution. Looking on Amazon I see a variety of mounts for Jeeps - some that go under the spare tire mount, some seem to attach to things which I guess Jeeps have and about which I know nothing.
Out of curiosity, how do you mount the VHF/UHF antenna on the Jeep currently? You could always pop the VHF/UHF antenna off that NMO mount and screw an NMO to 3/8 adapter, and away you go.
