This unassuming piece of bare aluminum fits well and provides a solid antenna mount. I found this item through Tacomaworld.com where detailed suggestions included antennas. My final setup works better than anticipated. I highly recommend this product.

Mount is perfect! Didn't want to drill for a roof mount with all the airbags in the truck.Mounting was easy! Only removed one bolt at a time. Started with the bolt closest to the front. Remove bolt, installed mount, snugged bolt, removed second bolt, slid mount over and installed second bolt. Didn't have to worry about hood moving. Used a Diamond Antenna "C213SNMO" NMO mount. Perfect. Also installed ground cable to the frame.

Good product what I was looking for. 5 star + great service on the phone and email even during Covid-19 shutdown

Mount fits perfectly on the hood of my 3rd gen Tacoma. I have a dual band antenna mounted on it and a SWR of 1.3-1.6 through all of my channels. *** NOTE *** You will need to get a "Thick Mount" NMO to make this work properly. The center pin on a regular NMO mount will not stick through enough to contact the base of the antenna. I also ran a ground strap from the mount to a good ground in the engine compartment instead of grounding through the hood hinges and latch.

I have two of these mount on my Tacoma. A dual band vhf/uhf on the passenger side and a 10 meter on the driver’s side. Get good signals on both. Love that they are so discrete. Easy to install the mounts but I couldn’t install the nmo connector on the coax. Finally bought cable with the connectors attached and was able to get it through the firewall.
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for the review, glad you like the mounts!

Looks factory, works well on my dual-band, no complaints.
David (Colorado) | September 10th, 2019
Using this mount, and a 2' firestik antenna I'm getting a SWR of 2.5, which is not acceptable. Every troubleshooting guide I have read claims this is due to a poor mounting location, which really makes me wish I had went with a tailgate mount.
Note From Victory 4x4: David, you may need to try a longer antenna for CB in this location. It could be that the wave isn't high enough above the cab of the truck. Let us know if that solves your issue. Also be sure to check that you have a proper ground.
