dont waste your money on the cig adapter to run power to it you can just run the power to the all time power by the fuse block under the hood or to the battery and the ground can be ran to the ground on the battery or to any ground strap.

----------



or you can ground it to the cb mount like i did

would there be a disadvantage to wiring it to the stereo power wires? that way i have accessory and constant power.

no dont wire it there there is a chance that it will mess something up put the power wire right here



that is right at the fuze block under the hood it is and all time power so you dont even need the key in to turn the cb on

----------

the bolt to put the wire on is under the small plastic cover where the wire loom runs to just use an eye connector take the nut off put it over the bolt then put the nut back on
