How far off is the width ? Do any of the holes line up ?

I can possibly get two on one side mounted but it's off by inches on the other side. The seat holes are 16" in width and front to rear it's either 9.25 or 10.25" (two options). The seat bracket is also a pain because there is a part of the plate that connects the two sliding brackets that cannot be removed, there are pins/bolts connecting but no way to remove them.





If you look close you can see the pins, they are round on the top of that plate (four of them).





Any idea how to get that plate removed?

Make adapter brackets using some 1.5 or 2" angle.

I like how clean this build is

Does that billet antenna mount replace the entire mount?....Mine is broken & I need something that completely replaces it.

Thanks!

The mount is a full replacement, give Eddie a call at Prestige Billet.

Not sure if that would work for these seats, do you have any pictures of the seat upside down and how it mounts? At this point I'm thinking a mounting plate would work well but I am definitely open to ideas.

Thanks! Sierra Nevadas aren't a bad place to rough it.

Well I have this Uniden CB radio that I removed last year. Now that I have a conceal carry lock box in the location this previously resided I am looking for ideas where to mount. I am considering mounting it on the Rock Hard cage up top but really would like it more out of sight. The roll bar location would be clean but cuts down on sun exposure through the cage. Open to ideas.


Here is the unit, Uniden PC68XL




Between the top roll bars forward is the potential mounting location

Thanks. Mostly just don't want to spend money changing things later, rather just build another rig.

They are indeed. I have some adaptor brackets that should be in next week (may have to drive down to Berkley to pick them up), can't wait to get them installed!

*I ordered a new Currie TJJ trac bar so now I'm on the hunt for a stock pitman arm. Hopefully I'll have it installed next week.

That's a big CB. Between the spreader bars works and is out of the way. I put mine there temporarily and found the biggest advantage is that you can hear it well while going down the road. Everywhere else I have tried makes it a struggle to hear with wind and tire noise.
