Default Anyone have a cb radio?

My new cobra cb. Firestick 3 foot antenna on tool box. & my new cup holders! If anyone has a cb id like to see where you mounted yours. Mine is heavily velcroed to the fuzzy part of the seat. Wires ran underneath seat into a cut inside the vinyl then out the body mount under the drivers floor. Power cable ran under vinyl floor into dash to the cig lighter wires.

Mine was mounted below the steering wheel closer to the radio though. I have recently removed it. Want my bracket?

Compared to the pic above mine was mounted between the keys and the mic. And it was a big old school Cobra LTD.

Also, had a Talk Back mounted on the side of the cupholder floor console. And a Wilson 1000.

Are scanners illegal to have in a vehicle for civilians?

Default Re: Anyone have a cb radio?

I had a small Cobra DXIV in my '91, mounted under the dash just to the left of center with a Mag-mount bottom coil antenna stuck on the rear of the cab roof I used to have it permanently mounted to the bed behind the cab (the magnetic mount let me easilly remove it when I took it to the car wash).

I still have the radio, but the 2013 XL dash doesn't lend itself to accessory mounting very well. I may make a bracket that I can set on the center between the front seat and stickshift. Thing is, the channels are empty, except for a occasional trucker on Ch. 19 traveling I-77.
