CB install

Hi all
95 2.5 YJ

I was wondering if anyone knows if possible to use the stock radio antenna for the CB; when attaching power is the red wire wrapped around the prongs of a fuse, one prong, or what? And best place to attach the black wire.

No. You need to use an antenna set up for a cb, preferably one that is tunable like a firestik. You'll understand why when you hook up the SWR meter...

No you can not use the radio antenna. Ground wire is grounded to the battery. The power wire should be fused.
