I had the magnetic antenna mount that came with a kit from PCI/ORW for the last few years. The co-ax cable ripped out of the magnetic base after it getting knocked off the roof of the truck over and over. A low tree branch would knock it off every time.
Here's a write up on how to install a solid mount antenna base:
Step 1: Get a solid base antenna mount from Rugged, PCI, etc. or in my case Race Ready who carries PCI products.
Step 2: Locate the best spot for the antenna wire on the inside of the roof of your truck. I used a Phillips head and a BFG hammer to tap a divot into the spot where the hole would be drilled from the inside of the truck.
Step 3: Drill hole and use file and snips to clean up edges.
Step 4: Use two open ended wrenches (ask a friend to hold the one inside the truck) to tighten the threaded antenna mount onto the base. It has threading on the inside to attach to the base and threading on the outside to attach to the antenna.
Step 5: Route the wire around your roll cage and make sure it's not looped anywhere. Make sure it won't get damaged somehow.
Step 6: Tighten the antenna onto the threaded base.
Step 7: Go hit the trail and admire the range of your new antenna with solid base mount.
I was super happy with this new mount. It helped reduce some of the noise from the roof which was noisy after removing the roof liner.
Gonna be prerunning Pahrump 250 this Wednesday in my Titan. It's only about 230 miles since the prerun is a bit shorter than the actual race. Should be a lot of fun! Pretty interested to see how the 2017 raptors do over a 230 mile course. They give us a limited amount of time to do the prerun so you have to move at a good pace and last year some trucks were hurtin'!
Bump for old times. AII Racing says he misses you guys. If you haven't checked out the mufflers he sells you should. Black Widow mufflers are some of the best sounding mufflers in the business.We need to resurrect this thread it used to make me want to get out and do more to my truck.Bump for old times.

Figured I'd join the ranks and show what I've done to my titan! It's been about a 9 month process to get to where it is now and still have at least a few months before it's in the dirt...but it's been fun! If only I could work on it full time! CJD LT kit up front, Giant Motorsports 64" kit in the rear, lots of fab, and lots of fun!
Let’s get this thread going again. Post up a sick photo of your prerunner Titan!
Here’s me on the way back from Rancho Las Churreas near Santo Tomas. Yes it was muddy. Truck was built by DirtKing and later perfected by Discombobulated Motorsports in San Marcos. Nothing can stop the Angry Panda!!!
Anyone know what ball joints the rough country Uca takes? Purchased in Dec 2016, they are the press in style with out zerks. I have seen where someone said a Chevy ball joint, and rough country gave me the part number K6327P, which appears to be the bushings. Any help would be appreciated. The...
First time owning a Titan. I've built about every other truck made. There is not much info on what to do, what will fit, and so on for the newer Titan. I wanted to post what I just did in case someone is looking. I was a manager at 4 wheel Parts back in the day and love to work on my own...
It seems like the question comes up all the time and I know that Greg's Lift Overview does not include leveling, so I figured I would add a new thread dedicated to this.
The biggest thing that determines how much lift you can get in the front to level your truck depends on the year of your...

I love my 2018 Titan SV but I really want to reduce body roll in the turns at higher speeds (freeway connecting ramps etc.). I use my 4x4 rarely and will most likely never be in a situation where reduced wheel articulation will be an issue. Has anyone here installed a thicker swaybar with...
