Cobra 29 LTD Classic

Product Information

MSRP: $199.00
Average Price: $90.53
Manufacturer: Cobra
Yes: 97 / No: 1

After over 40 years of excellence in the CB category, the 29 LTD Classic is now better than ever! Professional driver-requested improvements include a front panel microphone connector (for convenient in-dash installation), a 9-foot microphone cord (for easy reach anywhere within the cab), and tactile controls (for added convenience and safety when adjusting functions). It's the number one choice of professional drivers!

Comments: Not much can be said about this classic radio. It's cheap and reliable. Does what it needs to do. No need to spend $100s on a fancy high powered rig.

Price: $90.00
Pros: Works great! Has PA controls Has weather channels
Cons: Bulky for an xj
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love mine! I'm running it with a 3 foot antenna and it works great on and off the trail to talk to fellow jeepers. I like the fact it has weather channels so I can listen to the weather without pulling it up on my phone. The speaker is loud and clear on it
It's dimmer switch is nice at night so I don't have all kinds of bright lights on in the jeep while driving. Overall I like it I just wish it had Bluetooth for my phone.

Price: $80.00
Pros: Great sound and output.
Cons: Big
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Don't have . The radio anymore. Lent to a friend many years ago and never saw it again. I used to get routine compliments on the sound of this radio. Most thought I was running a high priced high powered radio. I didn't even have a power Mic.

I have owned many radios from the conga 25, 148, RCI 2950, galaxy's, but never got as many "flowers" as when I used this radio.

Price: $70.00
Pros: I have literally beaten this thing with the roughest logging and coal RDS in southern west Virginia and aside from standing wave issues this thing still talks wayyyy out.
Cons: None really any issues were a direct result of the territory I'm in.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I've had my cobra 29 for years, and I'm in very mountainous terrain. I use this radio daily both open road and on the job and I've never had a problem with radio itself... that being said, due to the rough driving conditions like everyday mud and fender deep holes I have to adjust my standing wave at least once a week. Vibration is a beast. Even now with years of dust an over stretched mic cord and yellowing plastic swr panel. I still get asked all the time if I'm running a modded radio. Nope all factory and still running loud and clear. The cobra 29 ltd is the best platform for work and constant abuse. Mine has never failed me.

Pros: It can take a kicking under the passenger side
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got the CB at a truck stop and it does its job. Had to make sure that the wiring is away from the regular radio antenna cable and use a good rubber washer for the antenna install.

Price: $99.90
Pros: Good feature set, reliable, good power.
Cons: Large radio. Can be a little difficult to find a place to mount it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This radio has one of the longest production lives of an CB radio out there. That is because of it's reputation for reliability. The Cobra 29 LTD is a favorite of professional drivers and has been since the days before cell phones when a CB radio might have been all a trucker had to communicate with other drivers in an emergency or just to stay occupied while on the road. This a great radio and it will not let you down.
