    About a year ago I made a bracket to install a NMO mount antenna just behind the hood and in front of the A-pillar on my Explorer for my VHF radio. Previously I had been using a mag mount that I removed after each trip and I got tired of doing that so I decided to go with a more permanent solution.

    I redesigned my LED pod light brackets to fit a NMO mount instead. It doesn't require any drilling and bolts right on. I have been using a Larsen 2/70 NMO antenna and it has been working out great! I also bought a NMO cap for the times I want to remove the antenna.

    I also took the rubber cover off the radio antenna on a parts Explorer and cut it down slightly to install on the Larsen antenna to stiffen it some and cover up the set screws at the bottom.
