    i want to mount a cb in my dash..i know i want a cobra..i absolutely adore the 25 but im not sure if it would fit in my dash, i want it right under my radio like tacomazach's or either under the ash tray where the 2 extra cigarrete lighter outlets are

    Wish I did a write up when I did it but I describe some steps, It was real easy. Get the antenna, cb, and cable. Basic install can be found on this site and ttora. The part that may require extra work is mounting the cb unit. Take that part of dash apart, the blk shell where ash tray, radio and all mounts to comes out. I dremelled the back out of the ash try area so the cb would sit further back. I bought a right angle connecter for the antenna cable which helped a bit. The way I mounted it was using a piece of metal braket that u use on heating duct and such, it comes in rolls with pre drilled holes on it. Very common at hardware stores. Cut it to length, bent both ends at a 90*(looked like a big staple), use that to bolt it in to the black part of the dash. Without pics its hard to descibe. The cb radio fit pretty snug anyways, so there are many ways to make it stay. I just didn't want it bouncing out on hard offroading. Hope this helps a little bit :) it really was easy, hard part was put antenna cable under carpet. I'll try to find the links to threads I used. When I get around to putting in a head unit I will snap some pics of my macguyver install.
