    I have not installed it yet. I want to mount it under my seat and obviously Im not going to drill into the body so I dont know how to mount it yet. Although I appropriate the ideas I dont want it mounted where it will interfere with legroom. My first though was in the storage space under the temp controls but Its close to the cup holders and Im not sure if I want liquid so close. I may have to make a custom mount for under the seat. Im just not sure how to go about it.

    I though about Rugged Radios too but i was told they need to be unlocked to be in HAM range. You can do it with a programming cable but I just dont want to go through that.

    Lebowski fans unite. March 3-4th. @bigbarloand I are going to the Wiltern in downtown LA for Lebowski Fest. Renting rooms and getting ourselves into some nihilist shenanigans. Anyone down hit us up, man. Mark it 10 on this one, Donny.

    Yeah it is, luckily for me my friend is an experienced fabricator and is doing the welding. my welding skills are sub-par at best so I had to call for back up.

    @Kens04Taco @eon_blue I dunno what's worse:
    1. A job that's 24/7 on call
    2. A truck that sucks your blood
    3. A fun little car
    4. That purdy little lady and her cold ass feet
    5. Two needy dogs
    6. A safe full of guns

    It isn't as awful as it COULD be. But it certainly has it's nights... Especially the pressure to work 24hrs a day but without really anyone saying "yeah, do it, get the OT. We need it done."
