Installed my Uniden BCT8 radio scanner in the ranger today.
Ran the power cord back to a brace for the dash, zip-tied it to that. I will eventually get a 12V cigar plug splitter and hard wire that in so I can still use the standard 12V plug for sat-nav, phone, etc..
Ran the remote speaker cord past the shifter, under the seat, around the seat belt bracket, and up to the speaker mounted next to the factory rear speaker on the drivers side.
Ran the antenna cable across the braces for the passenger side dash, down through the panel where the carpet and door threshold meet, out under the door, zip-tied off to the frame all the way back, up through the rear tail light assembly to the mount.
Mounts are Firestik stake-hole mounts, heavy duty spring, and 8.5 foot stainless steel whip antenna, cable is standard RG-58, with PL-259 connectors and a PL-259 to BNC adapter at the scanner end.
So far this set up has worked great, I haven't tried testing range with it yet, (one of my friends has a 16" magnet mount antenna on a BCT7 and he can receiver our county dispatch from his house 40 miles out in the woods), I'm hoping with the extra length of the antenna I should be able to pick up our local PD general chat channel and get clearer reception when over hills etc.. Plus this set up looks sweet.
Secondary antenna is for CB, same set up.
