Default Re: CB Radio Installation

Just installed my CB under the dash in place of my ashtray. Accidently broke the plastic peice but oh well. Tucked away the switch for the airbag up into the dash.

After all this, I realize how badly I need to detail the inside of my cab. Also I need a new place to mount my antenna, and also my ScanGauge.

Love the clean Cb install though! This post was definitely a huge help.

I have a question. Im thinking about making a bracket to mount my antenna to the bed of my truck right behind my cab. Anyone done this so I can see some examples? Thinking about buying some metal and just making a mount myself and bolting it to the bed.

Ive heard that I will need to "ground" the antenna if I mount it to the bed though?
