    I'm pretty sure that isn't a Wilson 2000

    I tried but it’s too weak...triple mag mount instead.

    That's a medium!

    I have lots of those too.

    I've noticed how weak and that's why I wondered. I'll add whatever I have to in the roof for a roof mount. There's got to be something up there I can work with. I'm having visions of welding.

    I'd bet a good puck mount would be plenty.

    Even with my triple mag mount when I hit something solid the roof will flex a little!

    Waay too funny. There he goes, running thru the rain, but can’t remember what pocket and which keychain.

    I’ve had the hood mount for a dozen years. Good for last minute trip with a 5’ Wilson stashed behind seat. Just don’t expect much.

    Larson Electronics makes a third brake light antenna mount. I've almost bought it 3 times but cant bring my self to clicking the button.. its 164 bucks plus 28 dollars shipping.

    I was going to hard mount my Wilson 1000 on it.


    I think I'm just going to make me a custom bracket to mount my 5' Skipshooter to the bed of my F150. I have a tonneau cover so I have to get creative and bend a bracket to go around it.

    I was going to use something similar to that for Larson Mount and my Wilson 1000

    I believe that 3rd brake light mount is now out of production. Checked a couple of days ago.

    I didn’t search in depth, but I guess you boys will, huh?

    They are still in production for the F150 as far as I know. I've been looking at them since December... Typed in my credit card information twice but just cant seem to justify the 200 dolla price tag.
