Post Where to put a CB?

I've got my CB mounted under the dash on the passanger side. But I'm looking to mount it a little better. Has anyone used the Tuffy over head console for the TJ's?

Check out this product: http://www.cbrack.com/

A buddy of mine has one and it's very well made and multi-purpose.

By the looks of it - everything remains in the open. The tuffy product you can lock it up and stow it away out of site.

Question

Is there a CB rack like tuffy and cbrack.com's that can be used with the YJ's soundbar still in the way??

Yes - you can get products from tuffy that will work witha soundbar on a YJ - i think the cbrack has something as well. Just email them and see. I've going with the tuffy - will get you pics when I get the thing from them and installed.

Enjoy,

I removed the windshield tie down thingy and mounted my CB right there. I hid the power/ground wires and the antenna wire in the windshield molding. Downside easy thief target, can't lower windshield and if it rains while the tops down, its toast. Up side didn't cost any extra to mount it.

Well I got the Tuffy Overhead console in the mail today and got installed. Will have install pics etc. up sometime this weekend. So far - the things that I have seen that might be problem is the fact the wiring has to be very tightly rapped up or it can get in the way. The other thing about the wiring is that it has to travel past the rear "space" to get to the front one, which can get tangled up. But all and all, pretty nice. Not as easy to install, it is 1 man job for most of it, but you will need a extra set of hands to hold things in place. Make sure you have at least a 6" ext. for your rachet....More to come on the install....

Thumbs up

I that plastic liner from the recess in the top of the center dash pod this seems to be the perfect width for full size cobra radios.

**watch clearance with windshield
(ps when not in use the mic lead can be wrapped around the unit for storage, doesn't move much)

Hey Raymond,

Will you be at the meeting Sunday? I'm pretty happy with my Midland unit (everything is in the mike) and have it mounted pretty discretely at the right of the dash. It's removeable and easy to get to.
Let me know if you want to take a look Sunday.

Oops, me bad.

I just looked at the date of your original post. Seems like you solved this problem long ago.

Nevermind.

I was thinking about getting one of those "in the mike" type CB's where the guts are in the mic. I don't like the look but if it could be mounted on one of those cbracks, you could unscrew the thing when not in use.
