    Were you aired down when trying the obstacle? Maybe the sidewalls are still nice and stiff. The coopers could have been a bot more broken in, so even while aired up they flexed a little more. Just a guess.

    I went down from 35 all the way around, to 25 in the front and 28 in the rears. I still wanted to be able to slide around lol. I bet if i had aired down to 15-18, i would have had a better obstacle experience but i always worry about rolling a bead in a slide

    I can agree with that. I always air down for comfort and dicking around on obstacles, but I'd never drift a a corner aired down. That's just asking for trouble.

    i have seen videos of these falkens aired way down, so i knew they would perform, they just arent as forgiving for my antics as the coopers

    Look, they're conveniently on sale!!

    http://bayareametalfab.3dcartstores.com/2nd-Gen-CB-Mount_p_16.html

    Antenna I would recommend this.

    https://www.amazon.com/Firefly-Firestik-Stainless-Antenna-Spring/dp/B06X97CWPY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534902082&sr=8-1&keywords=4'+firefly+antenna&dpID=31LaJifPJjL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

    Coax and stud this

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001JT0CG...8f87-d5374941e8fb&ie=UTF8&qid=1534902140&sr=1

    https://www.amazon.com/Firestik-K-4...d=1534902123&sr=8-9&keywords=cb+coax+and+stud


    And then all you'd need is a radio. Here's the most basic one I'd buy. Can only go up from there.

    https://www.amazon.com/Uniden-PRO505XL-40-Channel-Function-Emergency/dp/B00004VXNF/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1534902188&sr=1-4&keywords=cb+radio&dpID=41efmMTI5UL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch&th=1

    This is everything you would need for a CB set up.

    Just buy everything I posted and you'll be right as rain. Installation is easy as well. To wire in the CB, it's just two wires straight to the battery. Easy peasy.

    I guess those fancy light up antenna's require their own dedicated power for the lights on them...so that would also complicate things unnecessarily.

    Those also aren't antennas. They're just lit up whips so you can be more visible in the dunes. So I guess that uncomplicates things?

    I've ran both and haven't "felt" a difference. It would also be beneficial to decide where you want to mount your CB. If you mount the CB on the passenger side of the center console, then mounting the antenna on the passenger side would make wiring even easier. Just a straight run. Now, they don't HAVE to be on the same side, but it helps.

    I was thinking mount the antenna on the passenger side and have the CB on the back of the center console or in the front of it in the cubby

    My favorite spot is on the side of the center console, right next to the passengers left leg. That way it’s not in anyone’s way, and it’s very visible for the driver. Plus you could use some industrial Velcro to mount it and not drill holes.
