CB Radio/Antenna Installer Recommendations

Can anyone recommend an installer with late model Wrangler experience for these items? I live in Chanute but would happily travel as far as KC or Wichita to find a good installer. Naturally, I'd purchase the gear from the installer as well.

Sure would like to have a good CB installed before planning a Utah/Canyonlands trip.

A CB and antenna are quite easy to install, about the hardest part is figuring out where to mount everything. I highly recommend the Cobra 75 radio, it has a small box you mount behind the dash or under your center console then you plug the handset into a small plug you can mount about anywhere. As for the antenna, many manufactures make some form of bracket that will provide a bolt on solution for mounting the antenna. From there all you need to do is run a power and ground wire, of which I suggest that you find a constant hot so that you don't have to have the key on to use it, and run the antenna coax back to your antenna.

Once you have everything installed and working, you can go a step further and tune your antenna, but at the ranges we typically use the radio's you can definitely get by without having it tuned.

Check out rightchannel.com. They have step by step instructions on cb installation. If you don't want to tackle it youself, call around to some local truck stops, some of them do installs or maybe able to direct you to someone in your area.

I bought a Midland 75-822 hand held unit. It has a plug for lighter and one for antenna coaxial to connect to. I store it in the center console. I also bought the stainless steel rear tire antenna mount, with a quick disconnect and Firestick Firefly antenna. Works good and fairly easy install. there is a youtube video on how to do it. If I can, so can you.
