Hey I hate to dig up an old thread but rescue where did you mount the radio? That looks like a pretty clean set up.

The component for the radio is most likely under the shifter plate which just pops off. There is plenty of room in there for the other component that makes up the radio. Obviously, the handheld part is outside clipped to the dash. thats where i have mine and i switched to have the exact same radio as his.

It's just the stock mount that came with the radio. Sorry I missed your original post. Haven't been on. Sag beat me to the answer but its exactly what he said.

Yea. The clip comes with the radio that you screw into the dash or wherever you want it. I have my fire radio there and moved the cb to the left side of the handle bar on the passenger side.

Yeah that's where I was going to put it as well since most times the person in the passenger are the ones talking anyway.
