How to mount a CB to a aftermarket roll cage?

Like the title says, I have a aftermarket Poison Spyder roll cage and am looking to install my CB and external speaker. Would it be better to mount it down low on the dash or the cage?

McMaster-Carr sells "shaft collars", which are a good start to something similar....

If you have a pair of fore-aft direction spreader bars running overhead, you can also secure a piece of 1/8" scrap aluminum on top of them and mount your radios to it That's what I did on my previous TJ which worked really well. I'd post a pic but I'm not at home to access my photos of it.

Here you go. It's just a piece of scrap 1/8" aluminum secured to the top of the roll cage's spreader bars. The gray padding around the spreader bars is foam pipe insulation from Home Depot.
