If you run the power wires to the battery that's something you won't have to worry about. And I'm not sure how well the underground trade of CBs is doing at this time.

I mounted mine to the console right next to the shifter...but on the passenger side. That way my leg won't hit it, it's not in the way of anything else, and the wires were easy to conceal.

My favorite quote from the press release.. sad but true: "Chrysler claims its products, especially the Jeeps, can handle all sorts of terrible conditions, churning through muddy swamps, climbing mountains, and crossing rivers. Turns out they cannot even handle a car wash."

It has been a long time since i had a cb, i had one in my 89 toy, i knew someone that hooked me up with a lot of channels with a digital selector on my 148, then i had a 250 watt kicker. now, i just want to pull it in and out on my days off lol.. I was thinking of just getting it peaked and tweeked to 20 watts...would just plugging it in the cigarette lighter do?

This is what I did. I love it. Wires hidden easy adjusting. Simple and effective

Mounted directly to the sound bar, and haven't had a problem with any of my friends bustin their noggin on it yet. And have been up some serious trails with a passenger.

After trying to figure out where to shove my mid-full sized CB for a few days while keeping a factory look, I ended up sending it back and getting a Cobra 75WXST. The base is mounted in the passenger kick panel and the handset lives disconnected in the glove box away from prying eyes when I'm in the city and don't need it.

HAFICON- what kind of over head console/strip is that? That's totally what I'm looking for to mount my cb!

Just did mine today. I ran the cable along the wiring harness that goes from the body to the tailgate, under the plastic cover, into the tailgate and out the grommet on the passenger side behind the tire. Pretty easy to do.

For a bumper or license plate mount your probably going to exit out the bottom of the tub but I don't know for sure.

Same thing...went from the front passenger, left knee spot with a full sized radio. Ran behind the glovebox and down the right side of the jeep with the rest of the wiring. Followed the hinge, behind the black cover on the tailgate, throughout the tailgate and the rough the passenger side grommet. Looks super clean. I had to redo once because I forgot to ground the antenna to the tailgate and the tailgate to the body.
