CB on the roll bar/sound bar ?

I'm still trying to figur out where to mount my little cobra.
I've looked at a ton of photos and my big problem is that I don't want to drill in to the plastic dash or cowling. For as often as I'll really need it, I would rather sit it in the back seat.

I started thinking about a hose clamp to the roll bar, but I'm so sure that is a good idea either. I can add it to the jeep in two minutes, and it will be secure. Or will it? Has anyone given this a try and had succes?

Also, just behind my head and a little to the right is a bolt in the sound bar. It is deep set, so I would have to be creative, but I'm wondering if that may be an option.

Anybody in the same boat?

PS
Mine is a 2012 JK.

Just throwing out a thought, band clamp either end of a mounting strap to the roll bar... you'd likely have to fab said strap... but itd just float there.


I have a 94 YJ, so you probably wont want or cant do what I did, but:
I mounted my large, heavy radio by attaching some angle iron (12") via band clamps (3) to the roll bar at the A pillar, then ran another piece of angle (also 12") along the windshield, utilizing the visor holes to mount it and attaching them together at the A pillar. I then made a triangle out of the frame with alum bar stock (18") and attached the radio mount in the middle of the bar with locknuts & nylon washers, so it'll swivel and still be quickly detachable. The clamps hold the weight, the visor iron keeps it stable, and the alum bar keeps big bumps from being transferred to the radio circuitry.
