Default CB Radio antenna mount?

Iím looking into installing a cb radio in my blazer but I just cant figure out how to or where to mount a cb antenna. I drive a 95. I wanted to put it in the rear but I dont know where or how, and how to run the wire.

What if you get a galvanized 1'x3" shim, and attach it to the bumper bolt. Bending it to the form of the bumper to come out on top to the side. That would save from drilling the bumper if your worried about that. I got a tire carrier, so I'll be putting one there if I get one. And for the wire, I would run it through the tailgate to under the carpet.

How about a magnetic mount on the roof?

Magnetic mount works pretty good, I got the cheapie Walmart 26" Scosche, I just run it out of the passenger window to the roof and bring it in when not using it.

Magnet mount lil' wil of you dont have a risk of limbs trees and stuff. If you do more off roading then you might want to look at a firestick or something more sturdy and rigidly mounted. I seen a lot of guys mount theirs where the rear hatch closes and turns out pretty cool. I think eventually I'd like to have a couple of hole mount NMO's for multiple bands.
