    Lol it’s really not as bad as it looks. For whatever reason my thumb bled a lot though. It’s deep but borderline needing a stitch or 5. Definitely didn’t feel great. Why you shouldn’t ever do something when in a hurry

    I was swapping out the white lenses on my Diode bar to Ambers and and wanted to test it so I pulled out a 9 volt and did it for the shits and giggles and it worked.

    Thanks, had to do some modifications to the C-pillar but well worth it. I just couldn’t drill a hole in the rear doors just to install tweeters, had to find a better location.

    285/75/r16 Nitto Trail Grappler M/T’s, Extang 2.0 hard tonneau tri-fold. Billstein 5100’s front/rear with OME 886 coils and Headstrong off-road 3 leaf progressive AAL. All speakers replaced with Kicker CS Series. BulletPoint Taco Bar with stubby CB mic holder and two-way FRS/GMRS radio holder. Uniden PRO505XL 40 ch CB. RCI engine and transmission skid plates. RCI sliders. Garmin Mini Dash Cam 2. CMC by Milogen Fabrication.
    Installed a Uniden PRO505XL CB radio and 4’ Firefly (by FireStik) antenna. Used an 18’ PL259 coaxial cable and Rago Fabrication antenna mount.

    The hardest part of the install was snaking the cable through the frame past the fuel tank. I went through the grommet under the driver seat and then unbolted the front of the seat to pass the cable up to the side of the console (another tight space).

    I wire brushed and sanded the powder coat off of the mount where the bottom of the antenna stud mount goes for ground. The antenna I received (from Amazon) had a small slit in the sheathing near the top. I just used some electrical tape to rid it of any transmission seepage.

    I was able to get an SWR meter reading of 1 for ch1 and ch20 and a reading of 1.3 for ch40. Additionally the antenna I received didn’t have a tip to cover the tuning hardware. I ordered a couple packs (4 total) and of course the I.D. was a little too big and so I wrapped more electrical tape until it was nice and snug.

    Oh, also ordered the stubby mic holder from BulletPoint Mounting Solutions to add to the Taco Bar. I also used Velcro to mount the CB until I’m 100% sure where its new forever home will be.

    CommieFornia is a place I refuse to live. You should be warned: If you move to another state to save on the taxation-police, they can tax your out-of-state wages for another 2 years.

    I would have moved back to Oregon. That's a pretty hefty tax rate too; and I hated paying my 4.3%. Maybe @TheFactor can get a credit for sales taxes paid in OR, but I have trouble imagining any government making that easy to do.

    Thanks Brother but in Oregon there is no sales Tax on vehicle purchases. But California definitely wanted it even though I didn’t buy it there. Also I didn’t move out here for any other reason other then a family member because of a medical condition that needs my assistance. So moving back is out of the question .

    This is true my friend. But now the cats out of the bag sorta speak and they know I have an established address here and they have there claws in me .If I’d of known I definitely would have took my chances and rolled it for another 6 months until the smoke cleared .
