    Just came in through the mail. :cool:It's a Uniden Bearcat PC68LTW. It's a little larger than I thought it'd be but I'll manage to find somewhere to put it. I'm going to need some serious help running the wires, guys; I don't know where to start:confused:. It came with mounting brackets so that helps :D Just gotta go and get an antenna from a place that RecklessTaco recommended... I'm tempted to go right now...

    Thanks, Bus Driver! I've been keeping an eye on it, but I may have to just run out and grab one tomorrow- I'm getting very impatient the more I look at my radio lol. And from what I've heard they're only about 20 bucks right here in my own city! :)

    No prob, if youre in a hurry then you should just grab one in your town but if you wanna wait for a discount on a firestick then keep an eye on the thread. I believe it will be the 4ft stick

    Lol I'm not gonna even start alone, Andy. I'd just get myself tangled up. Tomorrow Matt and I are gonna get it squared away. I'm gonna stop at Audio Plus and grab the antenna tomorrow. Any idea on what else I'll need to get while I'm there?
