I figured while I was out taking pictures of my Jeep in the snow I would take a pic of the antenna mount. This picture was taken during "blizzard" conditions.

And I see the rust.... I need to take it off an paint it, but one of the bolts where it mounts to the body is a PITA to get to.

Mine is a three foot cobra antennae that has a mirror mount which is bolted to the stock roof rack, you need longer bolts than what comes with it but fits perfectly

I have not looked but i guess since you are putting nuts on the back, then it is accessible, right?
