Can't help the last poster, but heres how I mounted my HAM, which may work for CB's with a remote head.

|Jerry Bransford||If you have an aftermarket rollcage with spreaders on top, you can do what I did & mount a 10" wide piece of aluminum across them to serve as a radio mount. It works really well and it only cost a few bucks for the piece of scrap aluminum I used. The cage & the spreaders themselves are covered with pipe insulation for safety.|

I removed my air bag selector switch, modified the console some, and stuck it in there, I really like it, but I need to finish it up to cover the rest of the opening. I am thinking a switch plate some time. The mic is mounted using an existing screw in the dash and a regular mic clip.

here is mine, wood above the roll bars radio on wood, be sure to secure wood to bars.

i have a right side drive and wondered the same thing, where to mount radio. My doughter actually came up with this. 2x12 board tied to top of rollbars hard top put back on, then radio mounted. By the way the top light says your radio is putting out, if the bottom light comes on, then your swr is out of range. set your swr/cal switch to cal, put radio on ch 1 and adjust swr knob so the needle is on the triangle at the end when you key the mike. switch to swr and key again the needle should be around the 1.5 mark. if this doesnt work i recomend taking it to a cb shop and having them check it. may cost $20 for them to set itas opposed to $30-50 for a new antenna.

|JeffsJeep||Since my 97 doesn't have an airbag switch I mounted my radio on the dash, in the center, fairly low near the center console (under my ARB switches and cigarette lighter plug). I have always been considering one of those Cobra 75 WXST models where everything is either in the handset, or in a very small box mounted remotely.|

If you're not going to use one like the Cobra 75 (hand size), then put it on the overhead and above the rearview mirror is the most effecient/logical/productive/convienent--

what was the SWR when you installed it?
As for where I mounted mine, its on the drivers side of the counsel but its getting moved to a ARR overhead radio mount when I get time.

|bagged92sdime||I got the Quadratec bracket that mounts the CB to the drivers side of the center console next to the 4wd shifter. Just look under CB's on Quadratec. I love the location of mine.|

|Kurogo||I'll be putting my CB in today. Plan on using hose clamps and putting it overhead as well.|

Just another option
I viewed all of the pix and ideas here and went my own way. Just something else for the future CB installers of america to consider.
