Installing Radio in JKU

Fixing to install new CB in JKU. Is it necessary to run 2 wires from the battery to the radio, or just run the positive lead with a fuse from the battery and ground the negative lead from the radio to the nearest ground point on the frame

I ran my ground to the battery, since I had enough wire, but you can ground it to the frame.

Typically you ground to the frame. You will also want to find switched power
