CB radios

What one do you have? Also what ones fit perfectly in our little cubby to the left of the steering wheel?

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that's just for an antenna. I know the cobra 19 or something fits without having to cut into the trim around the cubby (I think you have to cut the back out) but it fits with room to spare from view in the drivers seat

I have a Uniden Pro 520xl that fits in the cubby. Just had to cut the back of the plastic cubby insert to get it to fit. Uniden has a newer model which fits and has a digital screen (looks a little nicer) I can't remember the model name though. I can find it later.

Another option is a cobra 75 wxst. I'm really happy with it. I hid the connector just below the arm rest. You can't even tell it's there

I am currently working on making my own mount.

Don't want to shell out $40 bucks for the 4xguard mount.

Bought a Firestik Antenna and Mount set (like this set) and made my own mount using a piece of right angle stainless steel from Home Depot ($3.15). I just drilled some holes in the piece of stainless, screwed on (just the right angle mounting piece that the antenna mounts into).

I am going to get it all set up, spray it with bed liner (sticking with the blacked out theme) and then, after the weather brakes, I'll install it right by the tail light, in the same location as the 4xguard.

I'd definately like to see some pics of the finished product when you get it done. My cb radio is on its way, so I'll be setting mine up soon.

I have the cubbie hole with the pedal switch on the left. Do you know what the size difference is? Looks like I'll have to do a little trimming because mine looks smaller than the radio would be.

Also, how does it do on volume with the speaker being behind the dash?
