    My father-in-law had a Cobra 29 LTD ST laying around and was awesome enough to just give it to me! I ordered a 4" firestick kit from eBay and it'll be here on Monday. I'll be installing it then so be ready for updates!

    Radio is in!!!! The install was actually stupid easy and the hardest part was getting the mount for the antenna on rather than even the tuning part!

    The CB is an old radio my father-in-law had so I had no way to see if it worked or not unless I wired it up. Turned out the speaker on the CB was blown so I had to buy a cheap Cobra 500 radio that I mounted under the driver's side near the brake pedal. Don't worry I made sure the brake pedal was going to be interfered with! Radio works like a charm and now I can hear all the truckers!image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpg

    Oh I forgot to mention I installed a pair of @CBI Offroad Fab ditch light brackets!!! Install wasn't really that bad and I may go back later and file the driver side holes a little to make them fit better. Just waiting on the Rough Country lights to show up so I can wire the switch I got with the brackets:)

    Also got a black metallic front emblem from @Swank and it looks awesome! I did have a bed lined emblem on there but this looks nicer :D
