    Cascadia mirror mounted(bottom of) antenna. Have a 4' firestikk and works fine
    Question is would a 5' make any/big difference. 4' sits just below my flat top
    Bought a 5, is it worth it? 20211010_130642.jpg

    I think so. I prefer 5 ft over 4. Seems to reach better

    Is that the single stud in the bolt hole??

    If so get rid of it...To much strain on that one spot..See if you can find a stainless version 2 bolt mount..Wilson makes a alum one but i hear they break..
    Go crazy driver and get a 6ft fs....

    That's how I got the truck, already had to pull over and tighten the hell out of it once, definitely going to mount it on D/S mirror, everything works ok just want more distance
    Got a President McKinley hooked up and liking it
     
    Timin770 Thanks this.

    Jd....Im tempted to try the previous style modified to fit the latest style plascadia...No real reason to think it will work better but i cant seem to get same results on this truck as i did with previous version..

    Do yourself a favor and check out @craig_sez vids on YouTube. It will give you some tips on installing the antenna on your Cascadia.
