If you want something cheap and security isnt an issue, the Arizona Rocky Road makes really sweet one.

I've thought of making a few of these and try to sell them. I have to price the supplies first. A couple guys here have made similar mounts or better.

If I were to do a console, I'd be getting one from www.otrattw.com. I just have a smaller CB (Cobra 75WxSt) and stock stereo location and I don't run HAM stuff, so I really can't justify it very well.

I would think that that mount ^^ would get in the way more than if you just mounted it on the lower rail of your dash under the glove box

His consoles are awesome. I thought about getting one but I usually keep to a pretty tight budget so I opted to do a simple one on my own.

Another option is you could intstall a speaker either on your sound bar or roll bar close to your head. That would be a bit cheaper than getting an overhead console. That's what I did and I can hear it just fine.
