Yes, I bought this model mainly because it was inexpensive, small and a Cobra. All the reviews that I read say it is a great starter CB. I'm only really going to use this on the trails and maybe on long drives so I didn't need anything too hi-tech

Next on the list is an IRO BB, just deciding on shocks now. Between Rancho RS5000's, Doetsch Tech 8000 and KYB Gas Adjusts? Any opinions???

After the lift, probly just maintenance work (fixing bumpers etc). I'm gonna bed line the interior once I screw it up enough or sink it. Other than that, I'm gonna start looking for a full sized spare and maybe a roof rack so that I can mount it as well as other things on top
