I'm thinking about buying a cb radio for when I go trail riding. For those of you jeepers who have one, where did you mount it, and how difficult was it?
Would you happen to know the size of that antenna? Is that a 3ft or a 4ft?I have the same set up, I just bought the kit and fire stick from Quadratec. My radios speaker is facing the other direction though and I also mounted the mouthpiece up next to the radio. It stretches the cord out and easy to grab.
Had a buddies CB for a while and wondered what the hype was about because I could barely understand anyone. Then I bought this and realized that his cb radio was shit, the antenna makes a big difference and the way you lay the antenna wire in your jeep makes a difference too.

I had the same mount and CB before I made my mount and bought a bigger CB. The CB didn't like it when this happened.I bought this kit, came with everything, cb, cb mount, mic mount, antenna mount, antenna, and antenna cable.

Exactly what I plan on doing.
The greatest part about CB's is it cuts down the amount of stop and go that can be experienced when wheeling because you can just get on the radio and ask "when we gonna eat? Which way, left, right? Which trail? Green? Blue? Black?....." Without them everybody ends up stopping and gettin out to chat about which trail to go down which turns into what did you do to your jeep, what more are you gonna do and this is what I am going to do to my jeep. I have absolutely no problem with these conversations, just not 20 times when wheeling. To sum it all up, get a CB and convince everyone in Your group to get one if they don't already!Johnnymoto said:Now that I see this thread, I am getting the feeling I need a CB on the Jeep, I will ask the Local Groups to see if they are using them. Good thread.
