CB Radio install help?

Hi there,

I bought a cb radio just for just for fun, lol, and am not too sure how to install it...I see the hole in the firewall on the passenger side, but it looks really tight and i am not too sure how I would get the wires through it?

Any help or pics would be much appreciated...Thanks

ps. I have a 2008 sahara 2 door

You really only need to get the hot wire through the firewall. Take a wire coat hanger and make it straight. Coil the wire around one end and cover it with some tape. Push the clean end of the coat hanger through the yellowish foam insulation in the firewall and you will see it coming through the other side. Keep pushing until you can get ahold of it and just pull it through.

Note; You must tune its antenna, find some one that can do it.
