CB's Suggestions on Antennae and radio and mount?
Im looking for a CB radio (pretty good) and a large antennae to get good range. Also i want to mount preferably on the dash but dont know how to wire and need to remove sometimes...aka when im in Baltimore city...suggestions?
CB's are all limited to 4 watts by the FCC so it really comes down to features on the radio. Most are rather BS though RF gain is nice to have. To get better performance its all about having a good antenna and mount. Longer, higher, and away from vertical metal surfaces is what your going for. I did a long post on what your going to find as your best options if you spend way too much time researching like I did. LINK TO POST-->CB Help
1st of all I got the mount already (Kudos My Friend).
2nd: Can you send me a PDF file so I can print it out so I can read it.
And 3rd: I just did a dry run on the install and “Houston we Have a Problem”
Regarding your JK installation #2.) Says “Drill a 3/8” hole from the top down, 1.5” to 2” (depends on preference) in front of the existing holes in the support bar that goes over each door. The existing holes are those that are used for the guide pins on the
driver and passenger panels of a 3 piece top.” Quote!
Now to the issue:
It is exactly 1.5” from the center of the Freedom Top hole to the plastic trim on the role bar, which you call (“Support Bar”) and your base mount is exactly 1.517” wide with the paint and all. If the plastic trim were below the role bar it would be no concern, but it’s not. So therefore I only have less than .75” away from the Freedom top hole to drill the 3/8” hole not 1.5” to 2” without cutting my factory trim, which is not far enough in front of the existing hole, because if you do the math center to center it will not work.
I tell you this is true, because right now I only have a bikini top on at this time and I took it off to make sure.
Any Idea’s that you have come across in the past?
