CB Mount.......

I posted this question in the Communications Forum, but I don't know how many people peruse that section of WF, so I'm posting it here in the TJ Forum. Who makes this mount (or one similar) and where can I get one? I like the location that the bracket lets me mount my CB in, and I like the idea of NOT drilling into my dash. Any info here would be useful.......

I'm not a YJ hater. In fact, I'm kicking around the idea of picking one up sometime this spring. It's a '90 with a 6 cyl and a 5 speed. Almost NO rust and is pretty straight. Frame is in excellent shape. It's been taken care of. Soft top is a bit ratty, but it does have full doors. If the seller and I can agree on a price, then I'll add it to the small but growing fleet.

Can you believe it's in North Central Kansas? I don't know the seller all that well Larry, so I can't say where the Jeep has been prior to being registered in Kansas. It could originally be a southern Cali/Arizona Jeep for all I know.

I was concerned about that. I've got a Cobra DXIV compact CB. The manufacturer says it'll fit. Like anything JEEP, it may take some tweaking, but it'll get me started. I may not even like it there in the long run, but it was only $35 shipped, so worse case scenario the mount gets sold on eBay and I mount the CB elsewhere.

Have you bought a CB yet? those Cobra 29 models are far too huge to fit there, the one you should get are the midland 1001z or cobra DIV or one of those models. I was thinking about mounting my CB there and those full size CBs will not fit. Seriously just drill it in above the AC vents in the middle of your dash, dont be afraid to drill into your Jeep. Its just plastic

The CB is on order. A compact Cobra 19DX is the official designation according to my order confirmation. We'll see if it works. If not, the CB is going on the dash above the center AC vents. It's weird now that I'm out of the Army. Used to be I'd just snag a couple of MBITRs with throat/bone transmitters and we'd use them instead of CBs. Now that I'm a civilian (sniper-on-loan) again, I have to get used to using toys that are only available to the civilian market.

I just wanted to bring this thread back to life, because I am curious whether you like this mount or not Cave. Got any pics of it installed? I don't know if I like my cb just sitting in the middle of the dash, and this seems like the only manufactured bracket out there.

I think this is problem no matter where you mount your cb. I think just having an antenna sticking up is advertisement enough that you have a cb. Unless you use a quick disconnect on your antenna and splice up some disconnects for your cb like distortedtj did here, your cb could be at risk no matter where it is (unless it's in something that locks like a Tuffy, which would have less risk).

I like the driver side location because it's a straight shot down the dash to the firewall plug that I am using for the power line. Really just curious if anyone has had experience with this bracket.

I'm having some issues getting Photobucket to work, so I won't be able to post any of the installed pics. However, go to my username, click it, then click on my profile, then click my Jeep profile. There's a pic of it installed.

I'm digging it where it is. It's easily accessible and I didn't have to carve up my dash to install it.

Thanks for the response! That just seems like a logical place for it to go. But I do like it in the center so the passenger can use it too.

Yeah, that's the only drawback. Passenger can't use it when it's all the way over to the driver's left. But I'm still very happy with the mount and the CB.

Who the hell would steal a CB? Seriously, maybe in the '70s when there was a market for such a thing, but now?

Anyway, I like that mount. Thought about using it to mount a GPS unit, but I'm so not left handed.

A simple center-mount CB setup:

Maybe NEXT time we go jeeping together we can actually talk while we're driving!

So, when you coming out? I made some extra trips for JD and I don't even like him.

(that is a hint).

Nice CB setup by the way.
