I am basically looking at a cb radio to put in my jeep and maybe i can get some ideas from you guys to make it a little easier. I am looking for pics of the actual radio itself and where you mounted the antenna. Thanks.
Sorry, no pics right now. But I mounted my CB where the ashtray used to be, fit perfectly, and was able to use the ashtray wiring for it.
My antenna is a 5' K40 and is attached to the tire stopper on the rear quarter of my jeep and the wire is run through the tail light area.
The CB itself is a President model "Teddy R" that I have had since..... 1980(???) and still works fine, though I may upgrade sooner or later to a smaller unit.

This would probably be better in the picture request section, and it's been discussed a lot, but here is where I put mine.
I got the whole kit from radioshack for 100$, I just put the antenna on the tire stop, had to drill 2 holes but it works great. For the cb I drilled 1 hole, ran the bolt down (head on the inside of the dash) and tightened it up, works great. For the mic mount I just drilled into the front of the dash, right next to the last guage

Here is my "Radio Center" in the YJ. I have my XM radio on the top, and I made a special bracket that goes on the hump just below the A/C vents for my Cobra 148GTL SS/CB and Motorola railroad communications radio.
Now, I didn't have much to work with the setup I wanted for the antenna, so, I just hole-sawed a hole in the side, and mounted a side mount, stainless spring, and 104" fiberglass whip. I know, old school, but, that whip is a family item, It was on my dad's first four-wheeler, a '67 Jeepster, so it went on my first four-wheeller, my YJ, Hope these give you some ideas!
wow all of these pics look great. im probably going to put the antenna on the tire stop as well and for the actual cb radio, i dont know yet. Has anyone put it on the roll bar between the two front seats?
i actually used the mirror bractkets on the pass side i took the and put them on top of each other and put the ant mount throught them both and the mounted it back to the windo fram using the original bolt it works nice I will post pics when i get home tonight .......
All jacked up on Mt Dew, And commin at you like a Spider Monkey !!!!
i made a custom center console (do a search and you'll find the pictures of my cb install. I put mine in the center console that was made form a military can
My buddy just made a mount for his TJ that goes across the the top of the roll bars. was cheap too. Just a piece of heavy duty shelving channel and some hose clamps to the roll bar extensions. simple enough to do.
