    Gotcha. Thanks. :cool:

    Hopefully I won't ever have to pop them suckers out unless I'm replacing them, but if I ever do, I'll give that a shot.

    Just installed the cb radio. Got everything so far except the jumper cable. Haven't done any wiring yet. Will put up a "how to" for the hell of it of how I mounted the cb.

    Nice, having a CB on the trail makes it more fun in my opinion.

    Some day I would like to have a HAM radio in my rig, has anyone else kicked around that idea? I even studied for the test and then didn't move forward because I didn't know any off-roaders with them.

    If by great time you mean "sweating my ass off laying under a dirty truck busting knuckles and smashing my head on crossmember mounts" than yeah, a great time is being had by all. :p

    I guess I'm kind of an aberration 'round here. I hate working on my own vehicles. :( I'd definitely be paying someone to do this if I had the cash, but oh well: Wanna play ya gots ta pay, either in cash or in blood, sweat, and discomfort.
