When you get to mounting your new CB. Can you please take a few photos of your old dash set up from the rear. I am in the process of installing my Cobra 19 in the place where you had yours.

I upgraded my radio to a Pioneer AVH-8400BH and with it being a double DIN, it gave me the excuse to go ahead and get a Cobra 75WXST CB radio. I also moved around a few items and cleaned everything up a bit.

First photo is my old setup.



This is the new setup. I wanted everything within plain view for the driver.



The 75WXST was mounted next to the Garmin GPS. I used a piece of flat metal from the hardware store and mounted the mic holder up.



The Yaesu was also moved up on top of the steering column. I used two l-brackets that costed $.60 from Lowes and painted them black. For the mic, I put velcro on the back and mounted a velcro strip below the AC controls.



Here you can see the velcro strip and the super nice 8400BH. THe velcro strip also covers up some holes that were drilled into the plastic. Overall, I am loving the new setup.



Front of plate with the mic holder for the 75WXST. The mic holder I got off of ebay. The mic won't fall out when you are out on the trails with this holder.



And here is the back.

Here are pics of how I had to cut up my single DIN to make it fit.



If you look closely on the right hand side there is a hole. That hole had a screw that screwed into the Cobra 19. That is how it stayed in place.

Thats what I thought at first but with it being right there, I can control and take control of the mic fairly easily.

I did trim both. I have a set of normal fenders/flares on now. I will be trimming the next set again but I will be trimming the flares as well. Similar to what a few of the other members have done here.

Haha, I am used to it from riding in MRAP's and HMMWV's. This pic was from my MATV in 2009.

Sick truck. What brand is your inverter? Where did you get the extra outlets, led lights, and switch? Did you just take all those off the inverter itself and extend everything to its own location?
Also Where did you get your light switches from? They look really good and clean!
