This is a heavy duty 1/4" thick solid stainless steel antenna bracket intended to be mounted to the tire carrier of the 2007-2015 Jeep Wrangler. The bracket is constructed of stainless steel, and although more expensive to manufacture, it is an excellent conductor and doesn't require powder-coating. Powder-coated brackets MUST be sanded or ground down to make electrical contact at both the bracket mounting location AND the antenna mount locations. A stainless steel bracket is ready to be used without modifications.
This bracket also includes two custom-manufactured aluminum spacers as well as stainless steel bolts and washers for mounting. Simply remove two bolts from your Jeep's tire carrier and replace them with the stainless hardware provided.
This mount has the added design benefit of being able to be mounted to either the left or right side of the tire carrier. More and more people are elcting to run multiple antennas (one for CB and one for Ham, for example) and so the Cool Tech GateMount was designed to accomodate this. In addition, the mount can be installed in either a "down" or "up" orientation. In the "down" orientation, the antenna height is reduced 7.5" . Choose the side and orientation that is best for you. Other mounts give you a single side/orientation which may or may not provide the ideal location for your needs.
The GateMount bracket is also available in a complete kit with the bracket, antenna, coax, and connectors. You can see the entire kit by clicking here.
