CB Radio Installed - 2014 wk2

Hi guys!

I thought i'd share my cb radio setup. Overall it was really simple. Here's a list of parts if you're interested :

- Midland 75-822
- FireStik SS-204A mount
- FireStik 4ft Firefly Antenna


Thanks for looking









Hiding the power cable that connects to the cig litter under the console.



velcro as temporary mount, might keep it if it holds up



needed to run a ground cable with the coax cable. they both run under the seats and mats. the ground cable splits off under the passenger driver seat and is grounded to the negative terminal of the battery

Very nice and clean install I really like it. How do you like the CB? Did you have any issues with the antenna mount and the gap for your rear door?

What do you do with a CB radio? Is this a hobby thing like a Ham radio?

They are usually required for some of the club trail rides. There no or unreliable cell service in many areas of the country and CB/Ham may be the only way to summons help.

Otherwise its a hobby or part of a volunteer organization's equipment.
