Cobra 75 WX ST

Hey guys....to any and all who have installed the Cobra 75 in their KK.....i am planning on installing the junction box in the shift knob compartment. My question. Is where did you guys wire it up?? Did you wire it direct or connect a auxiliary plug for the outlet? If you did wire it directly, where, what and how did you connect them?

I wired mine to a thick blue wire under the dash on the drivers side...if you use that BE CAREFUL there is a thinner blue wire. Don't know what the thinner one does but I know the one I'm using works and the key has to be in the position where it's before you start the truck(don't remember if its on or run)and it works just fine

I wired mine to an auxiliary fuse panel that I put under the dash, which draws power directly from the battery. Here is a writeup I made over on LOST. http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB...p?f=45&t=72386

You can run both hot (+, red) & ground (-, black) wires direct from the radio to the Jeep battery through the circular rubber grommit that is in the firewall behind and to the left of the steering wheel. Wiring your radio direct to the battery will eliminate electrical interference from other circuits that you might otherwise tap into. I had my CB wired direct to the battery before building my fuse panel, and I had an in-line fuse holder (5 amp fuse will do) on the power wire a few inches from the battery just as a precaution.

The reason I built my aux fuse panel was that I eventually had too many accessories all wired to the battery this way (CB, trailer lights, additional power outlet, etc.) and wanted to simplify what had become a can of worms.

I hear ya there. Thats pretty much how i ran yhe radio. I grounded it under the shifter panel and ran the pos feed through that gromit that you are referring to. Eventually i want to run the pos feed to a wire under the dash when i can figure out which one


I ran the bumper lights to the fuse panel under the hood instead of battery simply because i didn't really want wires wrapped around the battery.
