    People swear by the Wilsons. I used to run a K-40 and I have nothing but great things to say about it.

    Have used them all on a barefoot and 2pill setup.

    3)Wilson 1K
    2)K-40
    1)5K

    Monkey Made beat them all and the 10K beats the Monkey Made.

    I'd say buy a 5000 and call it done. Those are some wicked antennas, thus the reason I'd say about 1/4 of all CB'ers run em.

    out of those 3 antennas id choose the 5000 just for the better 8x coax . the 1k uses 58 and the k40 uses 59 .

    would be interesting what if any difference there is between the 5000 trucker (with 10 inch shaft) and the k40 trucker .

    but for just a lil more $ you could have a cowtown 10K .
