The base 29ltd BT i believe is priced at about $150 at our CB shop, which happens to be the only Cobra authorized repair shop in the states. I really don't bother to pay attention to price too much. lol. I have a radio. haha. But what I do know is their 70w high power tune up mods is only about $40 when you purchase the radio.

ok, so after a long stretch of no mods, I finally can say that I have one in progress (need to order a couple things) and 3 more planned (again, need to order parts)

In progress: Backup Lights
Waiting for time to cut: Diamond Plate bed rails
Pending order: Pro-tech
Waiting for order of parts: Red/ White LED's in the dome light.

Hopefully all be done soon!
