cb radio location

anybody have any good ideas on how to mount a cb in a 01-04 xtra cab thats not in the way to much? i use to have it mounted beside the shifter but it wont allow the passenger seat to come all the way up.

Many of us just mount it in the dash, right under the aftermarket single-DIN radio. If you have a factory double-DIN unit, that would have to be replaced.

A small CB can be fit into the ashtray area, but you'd have to sacrifice the stock ash tray.

Otherwise, it would get in the way, except for the hand-held types.

Do a search, lots of old threads on this.

I had the same issue with my CB even though I mounted it just below the stereo. Initially, it protruded badly due to the antenna lead attaching perpendicular to the back of the CB. I fixed this by using a 90-degree antenna adapter that attached to the back of the CB.

if you get a 90 degree elbow you can fit it perfectly fine man, don't have to clearance anything.

Box Rocket: That reminds me of the '85 Buick I had in high school. You could bolt the ashtray bracket in upside down and then my Cobra 29 fit like a glove. It's almost like they designed it that way.

How's that held to the console? Screws/velcro? I just bought that same CB and am planning on putting it in the same spot. That looks fantastic.

Can you measure how tall they are?

I'd like to see if it would fit my current lower single din hole..

I really think I'm gonna do a handheld mobile then remove one power supply and make that my cb antenna plug.. So both wires go in same spot. Leaves me 1 cig lighter and one power supply if I don't usecb. Plus my cd player charges usb as well

I had to use a dremel and "clearance" the dash trim slightly after I removed the ashtray. But it is a snug fit and would probably stay put on its own but I used some good 3M velcro just to be sure.
