So since I have been lagging on rebuilding the engine in my '86 pickup and my dad wanted his car back, and that was gonna leave me with nothing to drive, I decided I had to go get a new pickup. 2017 Tacoma SR, access cab, 4cyl, 5 speed, 4x4. Pretty basic truck, didn't even come with a hitch receiver (I have since changed that.) Anyway, currently looking to put in a CB and am considering my options. For the radio I'm thinking a Cobra 25 LX mounted along the transmission hump in the passenger footwell, but as for antenna mounting I'm not really sure?? I'd like to do a toolbox type mount but my box is mounted all the way at the front of the bed so I'm either gonna have a tab sticking out the side of the truck or have one sticking forward between the bed and cab, and not really sure if there would be enough clearance to prevent rubbing during movement (potholes, rough roads, off-road, etc). On my '86 I just welded a tab near the top of the headache rack but no rack on this truck, and I don't really care for the idea of a magnet mount (or a hood/ fender type mount either)
Here's the truck

Enough clearance for an antenna mount?
