    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.

    you should get the Cobra 75 all in one handset. It's easy to find a place to install and doesn't take us space.

    Nightwatch is like an automatic lighting thing for night driving.. radio lights up, making it easier to use at night. (You can adjust brightness, etc.).. Weather is a series of 7 channels (where you are in the US is what is dependant on which channels deliver the weather to you) that give you nice direct reports from NOAA. Radio can also be setup to break into normal CB radio operation (and I think some even turn on if off) when there's a critical weather alert. I like knowing if I'm gonna get soaked, snowed in, etc. when I'm 3-4 miles into the woods. :D

    they're cool looking and good for close comms, but terrible for long-distance

    CopDoctor,
    I was afraid of that. How about a combo CB/AM/FM to replace my existing antennae?
