    looks like cali raised has a similar product as well. I think that will work fine for my needs.

    I recently went through this exact same scenario and I found something very similar to this at Tractor Supply for only two bucks each. Hardware store/ Tractor Supply would be another place to try and look for a simple bracket like this.

    I will take a picture of the bracket and my mock setup in the morning. I haven't wired the lights yet so it isn't completely set up. The bracket I bought has four holes, but it can obviously be cut if you only need two or three holes. I'm looking to do two pods (amber/ white) on both sides, CB antenna on passenger side, and orange buggy flag on driver side.

    I do not have any experience with GMRS radios, but for my CB radio I originally put one of these on my ditch light brackets and put my antenna on it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000X3EQ3G/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I was able to get a very low SWR reading and decent sounding transmission with it mounted on top of the ditch light bracket. I have since moved this mount and my antenna to my rear tail light and have since got poor reception - hence why I am doing this bracket solution to move it up front again with the addition of ditch lights.

    @TheBeast Here is the Tractor Supply bracket I purchased and my mock setup so far. Antenna goes on the free hole or the hood bracket hole I'm thinking.

    Damn 40 dollars for that little thing when a 15 inch gmrs antenna is like $10 and probably works better? Is it just because it’s tiny?
