I just email Firestik and asked. I have email other companies and almost always received multiple stickers. Last week I got like 5 or 6 from All-Pro.

Still need a Bilstein, OME and/or ARB.

Paul, I also emailed ARB and asked for OME and/or ARB stickers. They replied and said they will put some in the mail. I asked for enough for a friend as well.

Will you be at the BWW meet? Hopefully I will have them by then

i dont know if i want to buy a swr meter because of the fact that its almost (and i stress almost) a one time use item IMO...i know it may seem selfish...but the ability to use someone elses is probably the way to go...now i also know that if you have one of your own its more convenient..but also with the adjustable FIRESTICKs..once its done...ITS DONE>...

My $.02 worth...

I agree Mike. I haven't tuned mine yet either but it worked great from here to NM and back. I'd still like to tune it thou just to make sure it's working the best it can. Oh, and I'm also using a 4' Firestik.

What is the link to the SWR you ordered...maybe I will get one as well.
I got this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002D6KA4 because its the one the company sold that I got a couple other things from (West Coast Mall) making it convenient. There are some out there less expensive that look just as good and come with the jumper cable, just have to shop around.

ARB replied...I "should" have extra stickers. Let's see what we can all trade. Could be a nice swap meet.

I now have everything on or at least in the FJ. Firestik with Quick Disconnect and HD Spring on my Bandi mount. Cable run to the front with a connection next to the center console. CB in a M.O.L.L.E. bag in the rear on my custom made PSD side storage rack (Thanks Orange Boxx).

All that's left to do...Tune her up...and come up with a very original Handle...LOL

Nice set ups! I went a different route. I wanted something I could easily take out in 5 minutes or less, so I went with a Lil' Will magnet mounted antenna on top at the front of my bajarack, with the Midland portable cb. I just run the wires down the windshield, under the dash and then come out of the console. Mounted the cb on above the glove box. Of course, I won't get the range you guys will get with the firestick!

Thanks Scott. You guys are doing it the better way. You will get much better range than I will. Plus, that bandi mount looks sharp!

That's really all I wanted...was a CB Antenna. The radio is just for the heck of it...LOL

I guess it will come in handy on the trail. Especially when I'm with Chad and he takes off and leaves me in the dust...

Wow, do you have a spring, or just antenna mounted straight to the fitting that connects to the mount. I got the spring and disconnect, but to be honest was thinking about the garage at night, not hitting stuff...
