G'day

I use this mount on my GU and it works well with my Codan. HF mount

My codan auto tune ends up about 300mm above the roof line. The Barret I believe is shorter in the autotune body so may not put your vehicle height above 2 metres with the antenna removed.

Alternativley look at at Kaymar or ARB rear bumper replacement bars with the HF antenna mounting option.

Regards

Paul

G'day Roughy - this mob in the northern outskirts of Adelaide make brackets to suit a variety of vehicles - guess yours would have to be one - as mentioned above, they bolt on with your spare wheel mounts - quite compact and tidy - the one for my Jackaroo resulted in the top of the autotune being level with the roof (as it should be) - their pattern should result in the same for you. Installation is easy - routing of the cables for durability may be another issue. There should be other GU owners by the score that have put in a 910 autotune but.

Lake Macquarie comms supplied my bracket for the rear wheel carrier.

Works a treat and looks pretty good too.

Got a spare wheel carrier? If so, see if your base will fit between the car and the spare and get it mounted on there. Head to a metal Fab shop and get them to make up a mount. Mine set me back $50 cash- cut, welded, installed, and its solid enough to mount a vice on it. I had to paint it myself, but at that price I was laughing.
