cb install?

We are installing a cb and wondering where to get power from. My TJ has a switched and an unswitched lead off the fuse block. Anything like this on a JK? Thanks in advance.

Big nuke if you run the ground into the engine bay and pick the main ground for the motor on the firewall that would probably be the best place.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Run the power to the battery to limit alternator interference. If you forget and leave the radio on, it draws very little power on standby.
