Comments: I think I have my SWR right but most of the time everything sounds jumbled. Might just be the nature of cb's for all I know but it works for what I need

Price: $162.95
Pros: All controls easy to access, easy to mount due to small size
Cons: I seem to transmit quieter than others, measured output is 2 watts according to my meter, not the 4 advertised
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The CB has acceptable range and receives signals clearly. The handset speaker is a little on the quiet side, but I hang it from my roll bar so that's not much of an issue. Mounting was easy due the small size of the antenna/power junction box.

Price: $199.00
Pros: Small footprint, clean installation.
Cons: None, this product works great for me.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really like this CB. It does just what I need it to. I have the box mounted behind the dash and the cable comes through a hole I drilled just under the glove box. When not in use I unscrew the cb cable from the connector below the glove box and store it. It also has a jack for external speaker so it works great with the aux input on the Jeep stereo. I bought this kit: http://www.cooltechllc.com/jeep/jk_CB_AllinOne_kit.shtml It keeps everything well mounted, clean, and hidden.

Pros: Everything is built into the handheld mike. Does everything I need it to do. Weathbands are handy in foul weather.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Great compact size and it does everything I want it to do. Nice to be able to stash under my seat without worrying about people breaking in and stealing it. I like the weathbands and the inexpensive price.

Price: $80.00
Pros: Bought Ebay from a trusted seller. GREAT price! Installs easy, works great; however, you will want to install a remote speaker
Cons: You will want to install a remote speaker. The speaker in the hand unit is weak. This is a minor issue to me. I knew this going in to the purchase and bought a $10 dollar speaker before my install.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a great unit for a Wrangler. The hand held unit has all your switches and buttons. Their is another portion of the unit, the "brains" that is small, about the size of a cigarette box, and can mount under a seat, in the dash, almost anywhere out of the way.

The biggest Pro to this unit is that the it works great and is small enough to mount almost anywhere in your Wrangler.

NOTE: if you want to mount it to the right of your steering wheel, under the speedo gauges...test to make sure you don't put it in the way of how you turn the key to start the vehicle.

Price: $80.00
Pros: Compact, easy to install, easy to use controls on main unit w/o taking eyes off the trail/road, discrete.
Cons: Weak speaker/prone to speaker failures, no public address function.
Recommended? No

Comments: Ordered a 75 wx st because I liked the compact size of the unit and discrete install. After living with it for a few weeks, while I like that all the controls are in my hand, it is a bit awkward to be moving the main unit around the cabin of the Jeep and talking to a HUGE mic. The speaker is weak, so with the top off or on the highway you can forget about hearing it. My speaker failed after less than a month of being installed in the Jeep. FYI the process Cobra wants you to go through for service as per the customer service rep I spoke to seems unreasonable - uninstall the entire unit, pay on your dime to ship it to them, then they want 2-4 weeks to evaluate it and send a new one. If I could do it again I would have gone with a traditional CB.

Price: $100.00
Pros: Easy to install. Can remove the handset to reduce theft. Great range even with crappy antenna.
Cons: Speaker doesn't work. I've got to run the sound through the stereo
Recommended? Yes

Comments: One of my first mods. Worked great even with a crappy antenna. Picked up a lot more far off chatter than any of my friends setups. Nice to be able to remove the handset for around town. (CB antenna doesn't fit in the garage anyway) I installed it under the glove box in my JK with a pair of zip ties.

Price: $79.95
Pros: Low profile, easy to hide the installation.
Cons: Mic speaker is not practical requiring an external speaker.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Easy to install and easy to use. This might be the best CB for a Jeep Wrangler since it can be placed in a very small area.

Price: $125.00
Pros: Excellent; has weather channels, small, handy, scan mode; may be easily disconnected and removed from vehicle.
Cons: Small speaker built into hand set is barely adequate. I use a Cobra external speaker mounted above rear view mirror. Much better volume and fidelity.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Overall, this is a killer CB. One of the problems I had was finding space for a normal size radio. The Cobra 75 WX ST solves that problem by having a very small interface box which mounts out of sight under the dash. This where you attach the antenna cable, 12V power and where I plug in the external speaker. The interface box then connects to a small panel which can be placed under the dash. The panel has a connector where you plug in the hand set.

The hand set is where all the electronics are housed as well as all the controls and LCD display except the high power output linear amplifier which is in the interface box. It is small and fits into even the palm of my small hands.

I found the small speaker built into the handset to not be very good due to its small size. I fixed this problem by installing a Cobra external speaker which works great.

All in all, this is one terrific little CB that solves a lot space problems without giving up first rate performance and features.

Price: $175.00
Pros: Small handset with all controls intergrated
Cons: Nothing major no built-in SWR/power meter
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A bit pricy. But really compact. The controls on the handset make it easy to adjust on the road or trail. Wheather and EM channels are hot keyed. The control box has a jack for an external speaker whih I use with my stereo's aux jack so the radio comes in though the factory speakers. Great when the engine noise overpowers the handset speaker.

Price: $109.00
Pros: Compact! The head unit can be mounted out of sight and out of the weather. The mic disconnects and goes in the console. Can be opened up and peaked. For a Jeep CB, I rate it very high.
Cons: With all the features controlled from the mic, its a bit clumsy. It just doesnt fit your hand like a triditional mic.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I really like the Cobra 75 WX ST. When peaked and tuned to a quality antenna system (coax and antenna), it performs very well. As I listed in the cons, having all the controls in the mic make is a bit clumsy, but that’s a small price to pay for being able to remote mount the head unit out of sight, and out of the weather.

I purchased mine from Bells CB in Florida. The owners handle is "Screwdriver" and he is very helpful. For an extra 25 bucks he will peak it out for maximum performance.

I highly recommend an external speaker. Another downfall of packing everything into the mic is that there is only room for a small speaker. Spend the 20 bucks at any truckstop and get a real one.

Price: $99.00
Pros: All controls in one place, easily removable for security.
Cons: Coiled portion of wire can break after modrate use.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I added an external speaker using the provided port. (I mounted the speaker on my B-pillar as I often lay the handset in my lap during obstacles, and it can be hard to here my spotter.) Both my unit and a friend with this same unit have experienced a break in the wire. I have used this with a Firestick, but prefer the Wilson 1000. Overall a compact and versatile unit.

Comments: I'm using a 60" stainless whip antenna with this radio and it works better than either of the two fiberglass antennas I had before. Overall I like the radio setup - very compact.
