    So i decided to remount my race radio. had it mounted in my cupholder but never really liked it. I saw it mounted like the pics on the LOORS Tacoma pace truck and decided to do today. It took a little over an hour to do, due to just taking my time. I used a drill, Jigsaw, flat file, and a dremel.

    thats a awesome idea. Just got my radio and have been sitting in the car for an hour trying to think of places to mount it. where did you screw the bracket to?

    even better. it doesn't rattle very bad? i love this gonna make life easy.

    do you have a sub in your car? I have read elsewhere about the radio messing with the radio. I go a screw on antenna (not magnet) and plan on routing wires up passenger side front window coloum to center of roof. Do you think i will be ok or should i route my antenna a different way. Also did you connect wires straight to battery or come off your stereo red?

    Doesn't rattle an ounce. I run the stock stereo with the 2M at the same time without issues, and my antennas are mounted right next to each other (CB, 2M, and FM are all on a bed bar)

    I went straight to the battery, with an inline fuse.
