If anyone in the Grand Rapids MI area is looking for a good CB Shop

I know cb shops are hard to find and almost non existent. The place is called 131 CB Radio Shop address and phone number listed below. They charge 25 bucks for a test and tune and are very thorough. Highly recommended.

Bump for an excellent CB shop. I know my way around CB radio and was having trouble tuning my antenna on my new tire carrier. Checked ground, coax, radio, everything. Went to see Darrin (Bear) and he quickly found the problem and got me all tuned in.

Great guy to deal with.

How many people are running a CB?

Just went in to 131 CB Shop and bought a nice unit from Bear, Very reasonably priced. He is a wealth of knowledge.

OK so I have a question. How many people are running a CB in their rigs? And Is there a preferred channel that the jeep (and/or off-road) community uses?

I did end up having 131 CB Shop install and tune my radio, wiring, and antenna. Took them less than 2 hours from start to finish and I'm sure it would have taken me a better part of the day. I had the CB installed last fall, end of October.
