Actually, I didn't really find much in the way of CB radio reviews on Jeep forums. There's plenty of help on installation, but not much in the way of actual model reviews.
However, I found that though the CB radio community is small, the resources they provide are massive. Like Jeepers, CB radio enthusiasts really get into their hobby.
I suggest perusing manufacturer's websites for a few models that catch your interest, and then go to YouTube for some reviews. I bought a Uniden Bearcat 880 after watching a review of it by CBRadioMagazine on YouTube. I'm hopefully going to get it installed in a few days.
You can't wrong with Cobra, but generally speaking as far as jeeping goes, you don't need much. I know several people that just have a handheld and it works fine. When you're on the trails your close in distance so as long as you have a decent antenna, you're good to go. Its not like truck drivers that need significant range.
I just sent a request through facebook as well. Used to have an XJ and was a member of Jeeps Gone Wild until I sold it. I just picked up a TJ this weekend. Would be cool to connect with some local Jeepers.
You'll want to create one. I didn't have one until I joined the club either. It is all I use it for. There is a meeting Saturday, October 12th Details are on the Facebook page. We're doing a BBQ mtg at someone's house, so I don't want to post all details here on the public space.
