Scampers Or. Get everything from Paul's post.

RoufusTBarleysheath You also need an SO-239 connector stud mount. Items like the spring and the quick disconnect are optional. I would recommend the disconnect. Also, you might want to consider getting the coax locally, especially if you want to run the wire through your tailgate.

Needs: Cobra 75 (obviously), coax, SO-239 stud mount, antenna, and an antenna mount for mounting the antenna on the Jeep.
Optional: quick disconnect, spring.

Yes, you will need an antenna and a coax cable. You will also need to decide how you want to mount the antenna to the vehicle and how you want to mount the handset in the cab. You don't have to buy a spring but can if you want to (verify that it is rated for the length of your antenna). You may also want an antenna quick disconnect so the you can remove the antenna when not in use (this is not required, just personal preference).

On the open road I get a good signal up to 3 miles away and when on the trail about one mile depending on the terrain. If you get a quick disconnect for the antenna then you literally remove all signs of having a CB. They are great for when in town and parking lots for not advertising that you have a CB. Just make sure you get your SWRs as low as possible. Most often high SWRs is the reason for poor radio performance.
X2 what ken said, I have them on both jeeps and mounted them under the center console so I just leave the mike in the center console

It really depends on what you want, and where you want to mount it. Here is a site that has a ton of information, and they have some really good prices. If you're able to make the meetup on Wednesday you can check out what everyone has.

I bought this one too and am pretty happy with it. I also decided to buy a firefly antana quick disconnect to keep it in my jeep when I'm not using it. I'm also in RR if you want to look at it before ordering.

Btw - I have a SWR meter and can help you tune the antana when you are ready.
