Hey thanks for asking, I like it pretty well, its out of the way, and makes it easier to hear for me being right near my head. no issues with it falling or the mic cable getting in my way.

Hmm, I like were you put it more than were most put it. I think when I get mine I'll put it where you put yours.

What antenna do you have?

You can get a Uniden like mine for like 30 dollars off craigslist around me, I think they are 40 used from uniden.

I will be going to a whip when I get my rear bumper built up it will be going back there. the uniden I have is great for the money, it does what it needs to do for sure

Did my KC's roughly the same way. Ran all wiring through the trox screw hole and made switches in the headliner. Connected wires to different fuses on the passenger side

I installed all the relays that came with the lights in the upper console along with the switches, made it to where I could either have the outer two on or the inner two on seperate from one another, or just have all of them on.

ran the wires between the headliner and the roof, down behind the passenger side pillar fascia and into the engine bay. then from there they went up through the metal clip on the side of the windshield up to the stock roof rack mounts. my "light bar on a budget'' but never the less it works great. all wires are covered in wire loom and will soon be soldered at every connection to assure connectivity. let me know what you all think. thanks for looking; any other questions feel free to ask.
Your lights look a little dim. Did you run the power directly from the battery for EACH set of lights? If not, your losing some power when you run all 4.

it was just the flash on my camera interfering with them, they are really bright.
