I like it, very simple.
you are correct. the wiring is tucked under the factory carpet and has a quick disconnect. i do really like the location. its easy to read, easy to reach and pretty hidden. My only fear is that I live in downtown DC and run topless/doorless april-october. theft has crossed my mind. i would feel a little better if it was actually mounted, but then with the mic cord it would be more noticeable. Here it is pretty hidden. Trade offs i guess. will see how it goes. if someone wants it, they are going to get it, mounted or not.

I ran the cable as normal along the passenger side and up through the trunk. The cord is there but not completely installed onto the antennae. I bought an Ace bumper the day after i installed the cb, so didnt bother mounting it. didnt want to do it twice, but the cable it there and ready for a 2 minute install any day now.

End of thread.

Seriously I use it and pretty much everyone else I know. It works great and the price is definitely right.

sandbaja I have the midland handheld unit (75-822 I think)and ultramount antenna routed into the storage box between the seats. It is invisible until I want to use it then I lay it onto the passenger seat or cup holder. No loss of perfromance or usabilty that I can discern. Plus it's a piece of cake to disconnect and pull out of my Jeep for security reasons. There is a thread on it somewhere here by a few of us that went that route...

4fit I would recommend going with something like the Cobra 75 that is self contained. That way, you don't have to find a place to mount the CB head unit. Check out Basecamper's build thread for pics of what he did.

mathjak i just lay the mike along the side of console between the seat and console and its fine. i dont need it hanging anywire

2012 jeep wrangler CB mounting location question

Hello,
I want to install a CB in my 2012 jeep wrangler unlimited. The quadratec catalog has bracket for earlier models that have a screw on both sides of the center console. The 2012's do not have that screw and I do not want to drill holes in my new jeep. Suggestions anyone?
