    Got the stealth antenna mounts in stock now. Finally! Sorry guys, had to make a few changes to fit all the trim levels of F150.

    The motorized mounts are done and at powder coat. Should have them back next week.

    All antennas and coax in stock.

    Would you be able to make a mount for other radios as well? I have a tyt 9800.

    Here is my Connect Systems CS800D - the cubby can be entirely closed and you only have to put one hole through the inside to allow the cat5 cable to get to the remote head.

    FYI for anyone that has our mounts, we have sold over 200 of the motorized and non-motorized versions. We have had one report of the seal "squishing" out when the truck was parked in extreme desert heat. So, we changed the seal material we use to a higher temp rating.

    If anyone has an issue with that happening let me know and Ill get you the new seal. I have the one we have been using all along on my Raptor, no issues...and thats with going to the vegas desert....

    This is likely what I will be doing. I have the TYT TH-9800 but same concept with a removable face plate.

    I had to remove the CS800D and go with a TYT MD-9600. Because I have a ham license and an itinerant nationwide license and use my radios with our ski area license, I needed a Part 90 radio so I could legally cover all of them. No removable face, so I had to punch through the cubby and install it deeper.

    Initially loved the idea but then realized the the antenna mount is tricky. With the motorized part sideways (which is not what the manufactured intended position is) the safety fold over won't work. I hope the antenna won't rip everything to pieces when hitting a low ceiling. If you're anything like me, you WILL forget that fold down at least once....
