CB radios & the JK ....
 
I just spent the better part of 2hrs. looking up and reading about CB radios . Most of the posts are quite old so....What are you guys running with ? I obviously am not CB savy and just want a small CB that I can leave in the JEEP . Are those cheapy kits OK ? Which is the better bang for the buck a Midland or Uniden ? Are the Cobras with the everything on the handset any good ? Is it that important to get the side bands ? Any answers would be appreciated and helpful ( except for the smartassed ones of course ) Thanks ..... :cheers::wave:

Midland 1001z is half the cost of uniden520 and has the same features, both are good radios. More important is a good antenna that is properly tuned.

Thanks ... so the Midland eh I will definately look into that one . Again thanks .... :cheers::wave:
Would the 4' fire stick be a good antena ?

Most truckstops will carry the midland. The firestick II has an adjustable tip for easy tuning, I'd go that route. I'm running a wilson flex and love it on the trails, adjustable tip and very flexy.

I needed to save room so I went with the Cobra 75 WX ST and Liberty Antenna with Custom Mount. It works great and takes up almost no room!

I bought this kit.
Uniden Pro510XL Off-Road CB Package - $119.95

and this mount from Quadratec:
Quadratec Exclusive JK-CBMD - CB Mounting Bracket for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with Factory Center Console - Quadratec

It works GREAT!

:D I don't think any of the above CB's will do you wrong, but I've been using COBRA, for a VERY LONG time and thats all I use

This one is the COBRA MOD 29 LTD BT

It has a bunch of additions and the Blue Thooth, my wife uses on the road

Pretty cool, with the Firestik 4' antenna
