Yep, that's what works for me. I have a 36" firestik with a spring and quick-disconnect. The spring fits snugly into the clothes-hook, holding the antenna along the headliner. Puts it out of the way, but not buried under other gear when I need it.
^^X3

One side is for the antenna the other side is for the whip and flag.

It all fits nicely and out of the way.

Re: Where to store cb antenna when not in use

I keep mine in the house with most of the heavy duty recovery gear that I only carry on trail. I keep a stainless steel bolt lubed with dielectric grease in the spring to keep out road dirt. Takes 2 minutes to switch out.

On the mount?

Big Guy knows what's up!! If the FJ need to go into a garage the I tuck the top of the antenna under the roof rack.
