    If any of y'all are dead set on having an in-cab CB, I'll make you a package deal on mine :).

    Here's my official recommendation:

    Cheap HAM radio. It is legal to listen anytime and transmit without a license in a life threatening situation.
    https://www.amazon.com/BaoFeng-UV-5...582558023&sprefix=handheld+cb,aps,141&sr=8-10

    Not cheap handheld CB. Has external antenna that you can mount when needed and receives weather stations:
    https://www.amazon.com/Cobra-HHRT50...1582558023&sprefix=handheld+cb,aps,141&sr=8-5

    if you don't want to fork out $100 for a handheld, I'm sure this one will do just fine:
    https://www.amazon.com/Uniden-PRO40...1582558023&sprefix=handheld+cb,aps,141&sr=8-3

    The last one doesn't get weather, which I could see being useful when camping.

    I’m a little more Gucci and will likely get the $100 Cobra with roof antenna (hopefully provides added range/clarity) and also comes with a 12v cigarette charging cord to save on batteries.
    Camel camel camel shows it goes on sale for $90 several times throughout the year....

    For the price, you can't beat that Baofeng HAM radio.

    Seems like the GA crew prefer CB, but the TX crew all prefer HAM. Some have both, some have neither. I've heard, though the time period for this happening has already passed, that you won't be able to buy a HAM radio without providing your license number. For ~$20, i went ahead and picked up the handheld HAM so that I can have both. That way it doesn't matter who I'm wheeling with....I won't be left in the dark. I've been that guy twice and it sucks.

    Since I'm not an Amazon Affiliate, and those links aren't allowed anyway. You can both throw me a beer at the next meetup :thumbsup:

    You got it brother... I was part of the group that went to Charlie’s creek a few weeks ago for the snow ride and I was “that guy”. (Granted it was my first time wheeling and I came bare-bones prepared.) Radio’s been at the top of my list since...

    Y'all are probably tired of me chiming in here on this subject, but this is the one I have.

    https://www.amazon.com/Midland-1001LWX-Channel-Mobile-Weather/dp/B00176RNLA

    It fits in the center console in between the two hinges for the lid. It's so tight that its like it was meant to be there.

    I did have to use one of these though: https://www.amazon.com/DHT-Electron...a-571127880233&psc=1&ref=&adgrpid=67183599252

    I would think that the antenna is worth the extra $6

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
