Jeep lj cb mount

Look guys I've seen a few mounts on JeepForum, and I do believe that the overhead mount is definitely the best for my CB radio. I just can't break myself down to spending a hundred dollars+ on a flat piece of metal. I don't have the resources to do it myself, but was wondering if any of you guys have come up with a clean looking DIY way, that doesn't require drilling that won't break the bank. Thanks

Just installed one in my TJ last weekend. I used a flat piece of aluminum and mounted it to the back of the counsel. I bent the flat plate at a 90 and removed the armrest lid. Once off I drilled holes in the plate and sandwiched it between the arm rest pad and counsel using the existing screws to hold it there. Places the CB verticly on the back of the counsel. Out of the way and almost out of sight for those with sticky fingers. I'll try to post some pics tonight if I get a chance.

What size is your cb?

My solution required drilling two holes in the change holder on top of the dash. The stock CB bracket was bolted onto it. I'm going to a handheld cb and once I put the rubber pad back in the holes won't show.

I've got a cobra 29lx with the backlight so a decent size

Here are a few pics of mine mounted to the back of the armrest. Any questions, let me know.

I like that better than the overhead mount honestly. I'll see if I can find me a scrap piece of metal and I will probably do it the same way. Thanks for the pics and the idea.

I made one a few weeks ago, cost about 18-20$

Here's my set up


Well it wasn't that difficult at all, I used a 46" steel bar and welded on some small 2"inch tabs to the ends, then drilled holes on the tabs, then on the roll bar, and used 5/16x2.5" bolts with a nut, locking washer, and washer on each bolt. Then put it together. Once i got that i measured the center at about 23" and mounted the cb bracket. And that was pretty much it. Here's a few pics (not great pics)





I guess i didn't really need the tabs because the original plan was to make those tabs an "L" on each end but changed the plan a bit so just stuck with the tabs even though I obviously could of just got a longer bar all across.


Then drilled into the roll bar, I did this because I have door surrounds for the soft top but my dads jeep is hard top and we did the same set up for his and since he has no door surrounds he didn't need to drill a hole he just bolted the bolts into where your door surrounds bolt on top


Bracket on





Once I mounted it on (really ****ty pic sorry )





Finished


And this is on my dads jeep



And that's it. It came out solid so I was happy with it. It's held up pretty good up to now.

You can kinda see mine in this pic. I'm not digging through my 40 pages of Photobucket pics to find the right one.
Velcro on the dash.

Back of the console x10. It is out of the way, easy to run cable to antenna, and I have never had anyone complain about the lack of cupholders in the back.

When I get home this weekend I'm going to check clearance between the seats for the huge cobra 29, but I do believe it will fit on the backside of the center console. What I found to be pretty awesome as far as mounting the antenna was the fact that my smittybilt xrc tire carrier bumper has two holes drilled on a flat surface just on the inside of the rear tire so screwing into it or the body is out of play As a side question, since the tire carrier is powdercoated, when the stud goes directly into that hole, will there be a good enough ground for it to operate correctly? If not, will simply scraping some of the powdercoating off take care of it?
