I like that CB mount; I have one similar to it and it looks like a quality piece of work. Nice light bar wiring and gauge-locating.

I like it! I've never seen a cb mounted in a way I like. This happens to be the reason I use a portable. But with yours(As usual), it's not tacky, it's not hacked...it's clean!

Thank you

I built that one using a vise, a dead blow hammer for bending, and a few tack welds and then Kat toted it over to the powdercoater.

The bigger part of the shelf and the angle that goes up next to the dash are bent out of one piece. I made a new u-bracket to lower the CB down flat. The supplied bracket lifts it up to enable the speaker to be heard.

I also took the small Uniden remote speaker apart and installed a panel mount 4 pin mic jack in it. The other end is that right angle connector you see on the CB.

Thank you, been down a bit lately. The Doc said about 2 more months before the Remicade will be fully effective.

My Jeep makes me very happy It's awesome!

I like the way yours mounts more than I do mine, and the mount is why I didn't use it; it bolts in via the trim screws on the sides of the speaker grill. I didn't really care for it because it wasn't a clean look; the curvature of the side of the dash made it obtrusive. I might have to replicate what you've got, there, if you don't mind.

More progress!

Blaine put the tires on my Jeep and moved it so that he and Joe can re-do the Front and Rear Shocks starting Monday morning.

He did the exhaust already, we need to take a picture of that and the CB is installed.

He also got me a 14" LED Light Bar for the top of the bumper hoop and some smaller ones for back-up lights.

I'm so excited! It looks awesome!

Nice. I'll bet you can't wait to take it for a test drive.
