I think taking the trim off makes it look was cleaner being that it's a darker color.
Do you have to get tubes and gussets for both front and rear or just the front?

In my opinion, I'd be more concerned with the 30.. Wouldn't be a bad idea though

Yeah that's what I'm thinking and have read most about. It'd be a good insurance plan though to just beef up both lol. I'll probably be doing that sometime soon.

That JCR bumper is sick. Their craftsmanship is second to nobody. And they're made in USA.

Installed my Cobra 75 WXST CB today! Love the handheld control of it, cant wait to test it out tomorrow! Heres some pictures of the install. I have my antenna up front and I couldnt find a good place to route the coax cable so I just located it through the front of the door. Only is noticeable if your looking for it.



Coax cable



The box (pretty small) that is hidden behind the glove box. I routed the power wires through a small hole that was insulated with foam up by the top passenger corner near the battery. Didnt get a picture of that :/





Where the short cable is when the box is mounted



Its hard to string out 18ft of cable, heres how it started



And ended, dont know if it will fuss with the signal but well see!



Power wires protected



All done!

Same here man, im just glad I got it out of the way. I wish my brothers worked, would probably be cheaper to just get a new one..

Traded a buddy my wheels and tires for his (blackwhiteriot) and it keeps the law off my back now! Love the sophisticated look to them, and I do love kevlars too





And my dog

Good CB. Are you going to always keep it hooked up or was that for testing?

Im jealous of states like that, cops take the fun out of things.. I do love having kevlars again, the KM2s were an awesome tire though, they wheeled really well.

Always keep it hooked up as in exposed in the cab? If so, then no. Ive got it unhooked right now and locked in the glove box for stealers. I love that feature, locking center console and glove compartment. Its really nice having everything in one hand though!

Nice, I'm in the middle of figuring out what to do for rubber on the zj. I doubt my blue labels will be safe for street so I either need to attempt to sell them and buy km2s or kevlars or something else, or keep the blue labels for wheeling and buy a set of street tires. I have an insane hookup on a second set of wheels so I'm really stuck on what to do
