Antenna tuning

Anyone have the little device to tune a cb antenna? If so, I'll bring a 6 pack to use it on one of the runs!

An SWR meter? Yea I've got one and the extra coax cable to tune CB antenna's with. Too bad your so far away. If your ever in the springs area and still need it send me a PM and we'll meet up and tune it real quick

I have one as well. If you ever make it to Denver let me know and you can use it. I'll bring it on the next run I go on in case you're there

Awesome! I should have a few parts I need in the 2-3 business days and good to go on a run in the next 2 weeks! I'd debated buying an swr, but decided to check here first and i'm very glad I did! Thank you all.

I'm in Co Springs and Denver for work occasionally. I'll keep that in mind, or more than likely keep it as a motivational factor to take out the jeep vs going to ski!

Chad is the resident tuner.....I'd be up for an early run on Saturday, just have to be back to summit by 4. Wouldn't mind getting one more run in before my lift install next week.

i wish I could run saturday! I need to get the rear end components and that play in/taken care of..... If I do, I'd be in, if not, it'll have to get put off another week.

I'm dying to try out the new arb's that got installed! Once everything is properly adjusted, i'll be itching to hit it hard. rig is ready to beat on and I'm not going to have to be afraid of it breaking!

Andrew,

I have one as well, so if you don't get it set on a run we could do it when you pick up the shocks if you bring your Jeep.

That sounds amazing! I think that will likely end up the solution. I'm not planning to run with a rear shock on half a bushing! I will have the rear end hopefully resolved by next weekend as the final parts arrive via post.
