Price: $42.99
Pros: Inexpensive and easy to install. Holes on sides of radio to mount the mic clip
Cons: Display lights are a little dim in direct sunlight when installed overhead.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Radio came with everything it needed to do a basic install. Mic was fine for the price and the sound is crystal clear for my setup. I did like the option to put the mic clip on the sides of the unit but wish the holes were the same on both sides. Only the left side allowed the clip to be installed either up or sideways.

I installed this onto an Arizona Rocky Road CB Radio mount and since it is overhead, the sun glare obstructed the Channel Display so I had to put my hand over it to see what channel I was on. That is the only thing I did not care for but it is minor.

Installed with Firestik MU-8R18 Fire Ring Cable, Firestik K-4R Fire Ring Stud Mount, Firestik HD SS Spring, Firestik II 3' Red/White/Blue antenna, Quadratrac Rear Driver Stainless CB Antenna Mount and above mentioned ARR radio mount.

Price: $90.00
Pros: Nice small package fits under the dash nice and all the knobs feel nice and tight
Cons: Doesnt get out as far as I would like but at the same time this is a much smaller unit than some of the others on the market.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought this unit on the shop owners advice and I am please with the qualitly. The unit is nice and compact which was exactly what I was looking for. On the trails it is very clear and the squelch control is great. It has a PA system that works nice and my external Speaker inside the cab is crystal clear when driving down the road at 65. Over all I think this is a great value for the price if all you are looking for is something to talk to people on the trails. It doesnt have a huge range but a couple miles in the hills is nice.

Price: $0.01
Pros: Small package. PA. Aux speaker jack.
Cons: none for me.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: No problems with the radio itself. Fits almost anywhere you'd want it. Easy to see Ch numbers. Gain and squelch knobs. Emergency Ch9 switch.

If you have the PA on, all sounds will go through the PA. Including incoming signals from other radios.

Price: $45.00
Pros: Small Easy to install Cheap
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: So far I love this CB Radio. I haven't tested it out too much but it seems to get good range. The only issue I am having is with engine noise through the speaker, but I think that is an issue on my end, not with the CB itself. I have to antenna mount grounded well, but I'm still working on it.
