    I moded 1999 Taco so much it had turned to Land Cruiser
    I don't have Midland but I always carry with me my Cobra 36st.
    It looks like this one.

    I have regular Midland in the truck but I have handheld for when I am outside the truck.
    Handled is not mounted or anything. Just running on batteries.
    They are not bad I don't think they have as good power as installed CB ( I could be wrong and new CB's could be way better). So I would get one in the truck and have handheld just as the backup.

    I found a Cobra (I think) handheld with all the accessories under the seat of a used truck I bought years ago. Its probably an 80s to mid 90s model. Its behind the seat of my Taco now but I don't have a clue how well it works. Guess its just for lookin at and giving me a false sense of security. :)

    Thanks for the info. Anyone know where I can find step by step instructions for running power inside the center console for the radio on a gen 2 truck?
