    Nice! I'm getting a CB setup soon, can't wait. I don't really wanna hack up my lower tray under the stereo, I may do a copy of your install, actually looks pretty clean there.

    Looks good man. Me and my dad installed a ham radio in his truck and we mounted the handset to the same spot you did except on the drivers side.

    ^Right on Zack. My next step is an annoying PA to put the cherry on top :)

    You're using a Midland external speaker as a PA? Do you live someplace where it doesn't rain?

    Hey, it's an "external" speaker right? That means it's OK to use outdoors. :D

    It'll work till it gets wet enough.

    Oh that sounded nasty.

    How loud is it? I wonder how it compaires to a 15-20 watt PA. IMO PA's are more fun to mess with people than a $$$ train horn, especially with an echo mic:D

    Yeah the rain will kill that PA speaker pretty fast-you should mount it behind the bumper-it will still be loud-also, what type speaker is that-just an external? an all weather horn type loudspeaker would be a more serious PA speaker and a LOT louder than a flat speaker.
    You have a nice install-especially the antenna-I would secure the coax at the antenna with a retainer clip to keep stress off the connector point.
    EDIT the cleanliness of your interior deserves a comment too-looks very sharp and comfortable in there:)

    I say get a 100W horn type PA like I have hooked up to my siren/PA system. You wanna talk about scaring people that'll do it lol. I like sitting at lights and saying stupid stuff over it and having people all looking at each other trying to figure out who it is.
