    This was a real quick and dirty install, only had one day to work on it before coming back to school.

    Radio is a Uniden PC78XL from ebay, PA is 25W Radioshack PowerHorn from ebay, Firestik Antenna and Coax. The cig adapter was a homemade job from an old gameboy charger that I took apart and soldered. Ant. mount is also homemade from some metal I had lying around (but it's too flimsy, I'll have to remake it from something stronger).

    I get between 1 and 1.5 SWR on all channels. PA is plenty loud with no amp.

    First time I ever took the dash apart on the 4runner, and I must say that's a ridiculous amount of disassembly to replace a radio:eek:
