Mitsubishi Triton 2022 Bonnet Mount Antenna Bracket

Postby Keltickiwi on Sat May 14, 2022 9:43 am

Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a mount for my new Triton.

I need to mount two aerials, passenger and driver side front guards, not the bonnet

NZ based would be best but happy to buy the right product from Oz

Hi there. I wouldn't be mounting anything around the bonnet / mudguard areas. With the tighter gaps you've got a higher risk of paint damage.

I'd highly consider a nudge bar for any accessories up front. Alternatively, have you considered the front corners of the tub?

Sadly a nudge bar isnt in the budget for this year!

May look at the tub option once the load lid is fitted

Thanks for the options

Cheap and nasty..I did this on my Pajero to mount a UHF antenna in the early days before putting a TJM full bar on

What radios are the antennas for, eg UHF & 27MHz CB or something similar?

If there from different bands you may be able to mount them near each other on one corner.

To mount antennae along the top edge of the guard(s) you'll need a appropriately shaped bracket.

These come in various profiles to suit the inner edge of the guard and how it mounts. Downside is that the guard to bonnet gap on some cars is fairly small and that makes both bracket mounting and feeding the cable through difficult.

Examples might look like this:

Your other option would be to mount at the front of the bonnet with the bracket mounting on the top of the radiator support panel and poking out under the front lip of the bonnet. This makes cable routing much easier.

One example:

You'll have to do some Google searching to find the shape you need (above pics came from telcoantennas.com.au) and sometimes it is necessary to modify the angles/folds, which is easy enough to do in a vice.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?
