Looking for a new CB

I am looking for a CB for my Rubicon. I run EMS and am also looking to put a Motorola scanner in it as well, so I am trying to make use of the space. I am looking at the Cobra 75 WX ST and the Cobra 29 LX. Does anyone have any experience with either of these?

I've been happy with my 75, I don't use it all the time but it hasn't let me down, and the weather channels are handy.

The 75 is a good radio, but as far as performance goes the Cobra 29 is king of the hill. Louder and clearer audio, better output and easier modification.

It is a large radio however, but if you can swing the space the 29 is the radio to get.
