You might also be able to find one at a 4x4 shop
designed to mount a CB antenna and drill it out to
take an NMO mount.

There is also the option of heading to a shop that
builds police cars and see what they have.  I worked
at one and they would occasionally fab up a mount.
They also had plenty of right-angle NMO mounts.

The ONLY one I have found that will work is the Comet mount. It mounts
to the lip of the lift gate and has two adjustments for the angle of the
antenna. They are about $60.00 each. Associated Radio in Overland Park,
KS carries them... I have two and they work like a charm without any
clipping or other modifications!

I am using them on a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The same mount will work up
through 2004 then the body style changed. It MAY work for 2005 and/or
later but your mileage may vary...
