    Thanks, its a 3in spacer up front and a 2 in block in the rear with stock 265/70/16. I am working on getting Billstien 5100's, OME 885's and an AAL for the rear. I hardly do any offroading with it and I have no problems with it and no issues with alignment (stock UCA's, I got lucky)

    My Cobra 29 took a dump on me, the finals and the audio chip fried. I could receive but I couldn't transmit so I picked up a cheapo Cobra 19 and hid it away in the center console

    Sucks. Especially after all that soldering. Know any reason I can't receive? But I can transmit

    Yeah I was not a happy camper lol. Honestly no, my best guess would be to plug your coax into another radio to make sure your antenna set up is good, other than that I don't know much about the guts of the radio. Your transmit button on the mic might be stuck too, may want to try a different mic.

    I know the feeling, its frustrating. I started with a used radio that I got for 25 bucks, so I guess that was my problem haha

    I had a gaping hole left in my center console by left by the old cb, so I had to come up with some way to undo the hack job.

    I ended up cutting some corrugated plastic board and covering with outdoor carpet. It is not perfect but in my opinion looks a lot better. :)

    I also did the 6 pack organizer mod!

    Damn that sucks. Hopefully you can figure it out or get it fixed. I figured that any cb shop would look at me like I was crazy if I brought them a radio looking like mine, and it would probably cost more to fix it than the $40 radio I replaced it with. So I just bit the bullet and ripped it out. Kinda hurt my pride but now I have a fully functional radio so that made it a little better lol.
