cb radio wiring
hello, so today i got this basic cb radio from a friend and on the back it has a red and black wire that are long enough. but the white wire is cut all the way back, to the point were i couldn't attach new wire. i dont know much about cb radios so i dont know if i need the white one. also i wanted to know if wire it in with my radio fuse if that will be alright just like put it in the slot with the fuse and what i should do with the black wire if i should ground it or plug it in somewhere, by the way i have a 98 zj laredo if that would help in any way. Thanks
No idea what the white wire is but I'd guess it isn't needed. DO NOT JAM THE WIRE IN WITH THE RADIO FUSE!!! That is such a terrible idea. Instead, get an add-a-circuit and add it to whichever "mode" you want (On all the time, on with ignition, on with ACC, ect). The black wire gets grounded.

CB radios are best fed power and ground from the battery. Use a 5A inline fuse. The white wire bay be for ign power. What brand or model radio.
