    The truck driver side of me approves...

    What kind of CB did you get? If it is small enough, I would put it in front of the cup holders, if not, center of the dash, up top, in between at the air bags as much as possible, and use some industrial strength Velcro to secure it. No holes to drill, and nothing a little goo-gone or Simple Green can't clean up if you change your mind. Wiring, I would go with the lighter adapter, find one at any truck stop, about five bucks. Do you have your antenna situation figured out?

    In front of your cup holders where the lighter and power outlet are. You might be able to mount it behind you center console like the other person did. A 29 is a little big for your dashboard...
