Put it on the inside roof like truckers or on the dash.

no...the roof is double walled....you're only putting holes on the inner wall, not the outer skin.


I only suggest that location if it's a big radio. If it's small, so how i did my old one.....convert to smoker pkg/ashtray, then mount your radio to the ash tray.

Since added 2 more screws to the mount to the floor and stilts to accommodate the drop in the floor.

I'm digging that location. I'm robbing your idea when I find some buckets.
