    Let me see how ypu guys are mounting your antennas, and radios

    im thinking about running a small 2-3' firestick on the passenger side front corner of the bed and mounting the radio on the backside of the center console right by the cup holders since i have a regular cab.. Keeps it out of the way and hidden..

    So show me your setups!

    I just got my Cb radio yesterday and put it in. Still waiting on my 4' Black magic whip.And i have a question. Should i go get my set up tuned by a shop? Do they just tune SWR?
