Haha, i know this is probably a dumb question but, is the firewall on the driver side on the passenger side of my ZJ? haha, thanks,
Skyler.

and a much, much, MUCH easier way to power it would be to take the wires and put it on your cigarette lighter fuse in your fusebox on the passenger side. Thats what I do

Don't know yet... i bought the jeep with what looks like a magnetic mount by on the back driver side window... but i don't know if i want to do that because i don't want to scratch up the window.. (on the other hand, its an older vehicle, i don't mind too much).

Oh, i forgot about that! when i got the car, (the previous owner had a CB in it, but i don't really know how he had it wired) it had wires going strait into the passenger side fuse box, (3 wires, two red, one yellow) is that what that is??

thats weird...should be just one wire, the power wire...sure he didn't have something else installed like a PA or something?? And don't be like my friend and wire the ground straight into the neg side of the battery...destroyed his CB...dummy.

lol if your CB is newer it should have a little jack for it and a switch already there...I bought a cheapo chineese one from ebay for 20 bucks since my CB is a 70s antique man its some serious redneck wiring there cuz everything was too short...lol I actually used phone wire for the microphone cuz it was a 3-wire data wire to the microphone/sirens.
