Love the setup! I am looking to get into 2m radios and was wondering if you have any advice or resources that you would recommend me using to get started! Thanks.

and pressed that inward slightly.

Used zip ties... 'cause they were handy.

This has been mounted this way for more then a few years
without any issue.


















Thanks for this info! I will be doing the same tomorrow. Where did you wire the cb power to? Fuse Box? Please let me know thanks

I got a Cobra 75 WX ST And installed it like this:


Did it this way because I didn't want to cut up my dash.

Looking in to getting a cb set up for occasional use. I know nothing about them. I don't want it for anything serious, just for fun. What all do I need? I have this cb in mind http://www.uniden.com/cb-radios/bear...invt/pro505xlg I want it in the ash tray. For antenna, I was thinking Firestik FireFly series. Maybe an antenna quick disconnect or swivel? (so I can get it out of the way of trees on trails.) I read about a 90° connector for something? (don't know what that's about) Anyway, I would just like to compile a list of everything I would need to have a working cb. My budget is under $100, and the less the better for the wallet! Thanks! Oh and do these things have built-in speakers? Or how does that work?

Just did the ashtray location with a Uniden Pro 505xl. I really like the look of it, espeially because it only has two small knobs on it. I don't have an antenna for it at this time...just using it as a PA for now.

I got tired of messing with all the cordage in that area. The mic, phone charger, battery charger for gopro. And reaching under and around the mic cord was annoying. So I did this and I love it.

I wanted to do mine in the ashtray spot but also already had too many cords there (phone charger, radar detector, AUX cord coming out of head unit) so I mounted it on the B-pillar on the drivers side right beside my seat

Wrap the knob with a little electrical tape. Put it where the metal thing usually goes. Assuming you still have the knob. I did this and it's been on for 6 months. Hasn't popped off yet.
