One of the reasons I haven't finished it off and painted it, is because I may want to do some future modding. I have an Idea for the antenna wire housing and I am actually going to add an aux. speaker to it this morning. I will get more pics here shortly. I did make up some bumper end caps too, that came out great. At this time we are just building a prototype and had not intended on fabricating them for sale. I can make available any info for you to have one made up on your own. I will talk to my welder and see if he is interested on further builds for sale.

I'd love to see any draw ups you have on building it. I unfortunately lack the equipment and time or I'd be welding up one for my Jeep. If you guys do decide to build a couple and sell them please let me know, I'd love to buy one. Been looking at getting a tuffy console overhead mount but they are just too pricey and yours holds the cb up higher. Any idea how fitment is or would be with a hard top?

Sorry for the other bad links on the image thumbnails above, I re-arranged the folder and it screws everything up. Won't be doing that anymore.
The rear mount is actually a clamp type that sandwiches the roll bar.
The front mount rests on and clamps to the steel loop attached to the Jeep wind shield for tying it down.

As for hard top fitment, hopefully someone else has more input as I don't have a hard top and don't know how the clearances differ between the two. I can tell you that there is currently enough room with the overhead console in place to slide my open hand and fingers between it and top.








After final wiring for the CB PA and Aux. speaker.
