I had a shorty counsle and mounted it to the back of it, put the mic by the seat belt latch and it worked pretty good. There was even a plug in the floor to run the antenna's cable.

I'll Bite...

I didn't feel like putting holes in anything so I built a small L shaped bracket that squeezed between the seats and mounted the radio to that. I spliced the power from the 12v outlet on the dash and fed it through the split loom tubing and soldered a DC quick connect plug on it so I could take the radio out if needed. Its been working great for months now and I get a hell of a range with the two 4' Firestiks. I know they are not properly placed but they calibrated fine and I've got a confirmed ranged of over 9 miles (thats all I've tested so far) and it was clear as day. I also ran the power cables for my amp through that tubing. Worked like a charm and I didnt destroy anything in the process

i thought about cb's the other day. i was driving home from a trip and though it'd be great to get a smokie report since i needed to make some time.

they make a hand held one right? plug it into your cig lighter and use it like a walkie talkie.... know what i mean?
