Comments: I installed this in a 1980 cj5. There isn't alot of room so I needed a unit with size as my primary consideration. I like the fact that it has Wx band also.

Comments: The CB is my first one. It works very well and has never let me down. I have it mounted on the dash so it basically sits in the hot sun 12 hours a day without any problems. I recommend it

Price: $80.00
Pros: I've only used it a few times on Jeep runs, but its always picked up what it should. I've been able to hear all messages and information transmitted.
Cons: Does't pick up much on the open highway with a 48" antennae.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: For the price, the Midland does what it should. It works well on a trail run picking up the messages and information transmitted by the lead Jeep. The speaker is loud enough That I don't need the external speaker I purchased (due to my hearing problems).

Price: $1.00
Pros: Works well
Cons: No scan feature, knobs are a bit stiff.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: (Price reflects that it was a gift)

Havent played that much with, it NEEDS as with most CB radios, a good clean power source. Hooked up to another house mounted antenna and a DC power source it performed great. Jeep power... not so great, but that will be fixed soon.

Pros: Small and Compact, works great
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Got it on my Jeep with a fiberglass whip and works great! Talk to truckers for road conditions just fine and added a PA Speaker too so I can yell at people on the road. The 5W output for the PA though be a little better... kinda quiet

Price: $29.00
Pros: Works good as a back up CB in my Freightliner and as primary CB in my '91 YJ & '05 KJ CRD.
Cons: Not as good as my Galaxy CB but less likely to be stolen from the Jeep.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a tough little CB. Just make sure to remove it and place it in a 1 gallon zip-lock bag before trying to cross a river. Holds up well with rain. Very good reception when used with a 4' Fire-stick antenna. I use this model Midland in 2-Jeeps and as a back up radio in my 2003 Freightliner Columbia. Usually this model Midland can be purchased at Love's Travel Centers and Flying-J Travel Centers across the country for $29.99 making it cheap to replace when it does get damaged or stolen.

Pros: Gets the job done well
Cons: Cheap Plastic and Dials
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The CB is pretty new and it really does well on the trails. It is small enough to hide away but powerful enough to talk to your buddies while mudding.

Price: $29.00
Pros: Sounds good and was easy to install and tune an antenna too
Cons: mic plug can be a challenge
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Sounds great. One challenge I had was the weight of the coord loosened the plug on the mic. This probably happened because I hung a handheld radio on it because friends are too cheap to buy a cb.

Price: $50.00
Pros: Cheap easy to use with simple controls.
Cons: No back light.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a great little CB for your jeep. It is small and can fit into tight spaces with relative ease. The controls are easy to use sice it only has Squelch and RF gain. It has full 40 channel opperation and an instant channel 9 switch along with an outlet for a PA. I use a 3 foot K40 fiberglass antenna ontop of my jeep and i get excellent range for a 50 dollar cb in a somewhat urban environment.
