    I would want to refine the design a little before I sell them. I am going to make the next one out of a single piece of steel and a little thicker too. When I get the design perfect, I will let you guys know. I'll hook you guys up with a GREAT deal if I decide to sell any. Ill keep you updated. Thanks again for the response guys!

    Can you fold the rear seats down with the radio mounted there?

    It's handy on the trail. A vehicle mounted CB will get much better reception than a FRS/GMRS radio and you may not get cell reception depending on where you are.

    Nothing major or fancy. Just stuff to make it work better for me.

    LOL...It might keep you from getting smushed by a logging truck if you use the back roads in my part of the country.

    Nice clean install, I really like that antenna mount!

    Does everyone just use CB's south of the 49th? I'm just wondering because here hardly anyone uses CB, most guys have VHF or UHF radios? All the logging and forestry companies use those radios so I guess thats probably why? I priced one out the other day $500, plus antenna, 128 channels. Roughly how much are those CB's worth?

    How did you get the power cable all the way to the battery? I bought the same kit from right channel radios and the power/ground cable doesnt stretch nearly far from that position.

    Will the antenna mount fit okay with a camper shell installed?
