    Trying to piece together a cb radio setup. I've decide on the Cobra 75wxst it's on sale right now on Amazon.

    As far as the Firestick's go should I get a 4 or 5 foot?

    Now is that everything I need to get going? I'll be using this for primarily wheeling talking to buddy's and maybe the occasional trucker looking out for smokies lol.

    I went with a Lil Willie the 2nd time around a lot better signal and can quickly remove in tight trails etc for clearance cuts out buying a mount and cable and tons more convenient

    Interesting , So with the lil willie Does it come with the cable So I don't have to buy the coax? That would make it easier I guess and would be a lot more convenient

    disabled DRLs disabled seat belt chime disabled the key in the ignition with door open buzzer Installed Illuminated 4wd switch circuit board Marker lights Flashing with turn signals Toggle switch ABS Disable Fog Lights on AnyTime Mod Changed to Yellow bulbs in the Fog Lights Converted interior lights to leds Installed oem roof rack Installed Firestone Ride Rite Air Bags and Daystar Cradles for the air bags Added oil catch can Relentless Tailgate Protector installed
    Had a Wilson little willie first time around. It is a mag mount and the coax is already wired into the ant. Second time around I got a wilson 1000 also a mag mount and coax is wired in to the ant. I thought the 1000 worked better. Either one will work .
