    Go with a Cobra 75. All the controls are mounted on the handset so the small control box you can mount behind the dash. Makes it very easy to just disconnect the mic and store it out of sight.

    I just ordered one and I'm thinking the left side of the steering wheel right below the little coin tray thing and that way the wires won't have to go all around my cab In different directions it can just go straight through the firewall

    yeah, but the only problem is that im already too big for the truck so more stuff would take away precious leg room.
