CB radio mount?

well i was digging through some stuff cleaning some stuff out of my room and sumbled across a cb radio i got a couple years back... of course the first thing that crossed in my mind was putting it in my jeep.

ive got a few ideas of where i want to mount it but i just wanted some options from everybody who has one. i kinda want to mount it above the dash on the roof but i dont know how that is done.

thanks guys.

Do you want to go on the cheap or are you willing to pay for a mount specifically designed for an overhead CB radio mount?

Here's the poor man method if you choose to go that way:









Two pieces of closet shelf rack/mounts bolted together and held to the roll bars with heavy duty zip ties. Works with my bikini top, soft top, hard top, and no top without changing a thing. The holes on the rack make it easy to bolt up a CB, or switch box, and you can organize the wires with more zip ties.

Here's an option.

-EDIT- Just realized it's the same bracket in the above link. Well, here's how it looks. I'm happy with it.

I'll probably end up mounting one on the console by the floor next to the 4wd lever. But I like the look of the mount by the windshield bracket.

I believe I got them at home depot - though it may have been lowes. Both stores had them, though only one of them had the silver.
