Excellent Radio. The CB is strong and the PA is awesome too. The Nightwatch makes everything easy to see at night.

A little big for a Jeep but I had already purchased it some time ago. The weather is a big plus when on the road and trail.

This is a great radio. It is extremly powerful. The weather radio is also very helpful.

Great radio, but it's the only my second one. The first one I had was a cheaper Uniden when I was 17.

The nightwatch is a good feature. Has a very clear sound, you do not need a ex. speaker. The other features you really dont need.

Bought it used off of ebay and attached it to a 3' K40 antenna. Been working great when out on the trail.

Great radio, 2nd one owned! Had a problem with the first radio not lighting up, cleaned off the boards and it started working again. The weather alert squeal will blow your ear drums, but at least you know something is coming...

I had this mounted on my '90 XJ originally til I sunk that... Then mounted on my '06 Ranger til I traded that in... Now it's on my '80 CJ5 and loves it... It's been a good radio. PA spkr option was used and it helped me out when I broke down(droped a d.s.) on the way to Oxford, MS(Ole Miss)for a game

Basic cb with back light had it beefed for more power. Stock mic is good without issues. Bought used for $30 and have $70 total invested.

Very good, can't complain, just to many knobs to hit on the trails... then it take a day to readjust it!!

Great product, had to make some alterations to my Tuffy Overhead Console to make it fit. But I love it! It's great!

works good just i do bump the swr nob, so then ive got to retune. good signal, and great that it has weather channels. i like that i can dim the face light on it down at night and make it brighter in the day.
