It is from Detours (Knucklebone)
I like it so far. I have had it on about a year.
I have had to re-tighten the bolts on it only once so far. It's pretty solid.

Mounted mine under the rear tail light. If/when I get a new bumper, I may have to move it, but it works good for now, and keeps my 5' antenna from being too tall.

^ keep an eye on that - that spot you attached it is very thin sheet metal and won't take much abuse from that antenna swinging around

I plan to weld a bit to it and have a stabilizer on the side of the quarter panel, just felt like getting it on and finished that night at like 1 am. When I have it bungeed to the rack it doesn't shake around much.

Can can you drive down the highway with it not hitting the car's body that's what I'm worried about.

Made a mount out of a 7" piece of 1/4 flat bar and bent it in a Z using 3 selftappers in the fender and using 1 fender bolt.

i never had a problem on the public roads except for low trees. I ran 2 for a long time. Trees in town could possibly on the trail definitely. I had 1 on the roof it touched my windshield once. I had it on a hood mount, not really ideal or strong enough. Then i put 2 on the rear bumper. If you put a tennis ball with a small hole so it stays in place you might be happy with that. Lots of old trucks ran a tennis ball to keep it off the paint.
