I put a few more things on the heep tonight

My jeep while I was putting the CB on



Antenna on



CB mounted



The antenna just misses the tire



Then I cleaned her all up and put the rear soft doors on









I like how the CB is mounted. It is in a great place. I would recommend the cooltech kit

I ordered them from an online ebay store that had them for the cheapest price I could find. They were shipped straight from quadratec for a fraction of the cost

They look like they will leak a little. There is a little gap around the door where I can see the sun. I will be bending them and tweaking them a little to make them as tight as possible though.

yep it is the cobra 75.


I still need to set it all up. I am not really sure how. It just makes loud fuzzy noises now. I think I will go to a CB shop and have them set it up for me because I am CB illiterate

Be patient. I worked them and now the only place I see light thru is the bottom corner under the hinge. I have no leakage at all into the interior. Only a little wetness in that corner on the door sill and who cares really about that.
By the way the Jeep looks great.
