I forgot about that being a prize.

So I need a CB radio for Dumpster any suggestions? I know even less about setting them up.

CB radio
Fire stick
Cable
Speaker
Micro.

Is that all I need?

SWR meter to tune it.

I went with this kit from Right Channel but they have others.

Is that the remote kit? Looks like the CB is just a small box, then all the controls are on the hand mic.

Yep. I like it, as I can hide everything and lock up the mic when not in use. Works great.

Here's the CB set up. I used a fuse adapter to run the power right from the fuse box, so the CB powers up when the jeep is started.


Teraflex mount.


The power box is hid under the dash.

I looked and looked for the best place to mount the CB/mic and this is what I came up with.




The keys are close, but I have no issues starting the jeep, or grabbing the radio. It's easy to reach and the cord isn't in the way of anything.


I just velcro'd the external speaker to the dash, I can hear it at hwy speeds with the windows down.

I run the same one jeffro showed above. Jeff, you must take 6 pictures of every mod and have a very organized photobucket account to be that quick.

I actually have my own photo website, and if you look at the links in my sig, you'll see I'm pretty organized.

I have a remote kit from Cobra. I like that I can unplug the mic and there is nothing left except the box mounted inside the center console.
