I've bought 3 of these great radios to install in my Jeeps over the last 15 years. I spoke with a local farmer who runs a total of 22 rigs and has them in all of them. They say they would never consider another radio.
Turning down RF gain works great when you are caravanning, since you may over-modulate at times, causing distortion or excessive clipping.
This radio fits perfectly between the steering column and the center control console on the dash of my JK. It is also not too conspicuous there.
