This is where I have mine mounted along with antenna.

Just running a K30 mag mount with my Uniden Grant XL CB radio.

I like it up on the roof because the speaker is close to your ears.

You can cut the handle off a ping pong paddle and slide the paddle under the headliner to mount it to.

Mine's mounted between the visor's as well. I used the visor clip mounts though and just extended an L bracket from the cb mount to the visor brackets. Worked like a charm.

Just went out to snap a few cell pics for ya. I think I paid $3 or so for the L brackets





Definitely seems secure, hasn't budged. All my wiring is run between the headliner and roof then so it's out of the way. Was alot easier doing all of that at the same time I was bedlining the headliner.

I like your idea I've always liked the idea of having my CB on roof I work on an ambulance and that's where ours is mounted

Nice. Yeah, the location for the CB & switch panel were influenced by our firetrucks...been running fire/rescue 22 years now and ambulance as well off & on during those years. I like the CB being up & out of the way where it is. The XJ just doesn't have a lot of mounting room on the dash or center console for stuff really.
