I'm just looking into a mobile antenna for my Toyota Tacoma truck.  The bed has rails on the side for mounting accessories.  Is there an antenna mount that fits these?

In my "research" I saw where someone suggested mounting an antenna to a cargo divider.  Just thought there might be a true rail mount.

Thanks

Yes, there are at least two makers.

You can also use the hood seam, and an angle bracket.

If you want a dual band antenna, that will probably outlast you, then buy a Larsen NMO2/70BK.

Here is another mount that can be used. http://tmrce.stores.yahoo.net/ I modified the "Boss Hawg" bed rail gripper mount to use in my set up.http://good-times.webshots.com/album/563222040MWfVGD

Your virus program is wonky; there's nothing the matter with the link.
