Here's how I used to have mine





They are 3' Firestiks with heavy duty springs, they flex back at interstate speed. I had light duty springs on them but they would start swinging back and forth in the wind and would keep slapping the cab. I'm about to switch to basically the same setup but with ball mounts on the cab instead of having them mounted to the tool box due to the stacks

Back of the cab. Favorite spot for em. Flexed a bit while driving but not a huge amount, seemed just right lol.

My truck was pretty tall, 6" lift on 37s, and I had some dumbass ask me once, "are those like little roof feeler things so you don't hit the roof on anything?"
I told him "only when I'm driving backwards."

Those little 2 and 3 foot whips look too inadequate for these trucks, in my opinion. I like my dual 4 foot whips on heavy springs. They flex real nice but still stay straight up. Theyre on the side of my toolbox where they look the best (behind the cab). Can't go behind the toolbox because I don't like that much space between toolbox and cab and my toolbox opens up to vertical.



Thanks and Gig 'Em!
