Teraflex CB Bracket

Teraflex CB Bracket

Part #: 4997190

I wanted to mount a CB antenna onto the back of the Jeep, but not having an aftermarket bumper I was limited on where to put it. I've seen drilling the license plate bracket, drilling the body of the Jeep, or drilling the factory tire carrier, but I decided I didn't want to drill as many holes in this Jeep as I have in the past. So a bracket that mounted in a stock location was important. I saw two brackets that mounted to the factory tire carrier, Teraflex and another that I can't remember. Teraflex's is made of steel and the other was a plastic. They are basically the same shape, just different material. My feeling was I couldn't flex Tera's.

Tools Needed:
Tire Iron
13mm Socket
19mm Socket

Teraflex Installation

The Parts:
1. Remove the spare tire with the tire iron or a 19mm socket.
2. Remove the two upper right hand side bolts holding the factory tire carrier on with a 13mm Socket.
3. Before you install the bracket on the Jeep you need to remove the powdercoat to provide a good ground for the CB antenna. I ground the back and front of the lower bolt hole and the underside of the hole that I was going to mount the antenna holder in.
4. Install the CB Antenna mount (the two boss's on the plate go to the inside). Use the 2 new 8mm x 40 bolts, lock washers and flat washers.
5. Tighten the bolts to 10 ft/lb torque.
6. Install your antenna of choice in either of the two holes.
7. You can route your antenna through a nice hole provided by Jeep.    
8. Reinstall your spare tire.

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
