Overhead console?
 
Has anyone put or tried an overhead console in there jeep? Am thinking about it for my 06 TJ X so I can put a CB up huh out of the way, but looks like the one that will fit is over 200. Is it worth it?

I bought it to use for a ham radio, which I haven't finished saving up for/deciding on an antenna setup yet. I have a Cobra 75 so that I only needed space for one full-size radio. So right now it's basically storage. No rattles to speak of though, and it's never been in a position for me to bang my head on it (I know the two-bay console is supposed to rattle a lot and also be good for a few hard knocks if you're not paying attention)

Love mine. Keeps the CB up and out of the way. Also keeps it VERY secure.

The guy doesn't make them anymore, so I am glad I got one when I did.

mine came with one of these
http://i5.ebayimg.com/01/i/000/f5/b5/4e7a_1.JPG

haven't banged my head in a long time now. does come in handy but don't know if i'd buy it or not if it wasn't already there. don't use the sun glass compartments(1 ea side) but the lights and the pass through storage is used. started to squeek, but had the top dn 1 day and just tightened everything up and quiet now. you are looking at the bottom and the storage is from the blk(sunglass holder) left and padded. netting comes in handy too for papers
$55 on ebay, not too bad i guess
(mine blk)
