Cobra 75 wx st Power to Battery

Hi, guys. I just got the Right Channel radios package with Cobra 75 and all the fixins, and am hoping to install it this weekend on my 2016 JKWW. Although I'm not the most mechanically inclined person in the world I'm pretty confident about most of the process, except for the power aspect.

Any specific advice on running it to the battery? What to watch out for? Is it as simple as running the wire to the battery? The installation guide only shows tapping the wires of the power outlet. Frankly, I'm afraid of frying something. Any help would be appreciated.

Or, if there's any place in Southern California familiar with CB's that'll do it for me I'm not too proud to pay for it...I just can't find any.

My thanks in advance...

It is as simple as running a power wire to the battery though I'd probably crimp a ring connector to the power leads and connect them to the main power connectors inside your JK's power distribution center. You can see them in the below photo, where the heavy gauge red & black cables connect near the bottom of the photo.

I'd offer to help get your CB installed & ready for use but I'm in northern San Diego county & I doubt you'd want to drive that far.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thank you for the suggestion, and offer of help. I may take you up on it...better to drive a bit and have things done right than not. But I'll see how far I can get first. Thanks again!
