CB and PA installed

I finally got time to install my CB and PA. Holy crap a PA is a ton of fun.

I still need to get my CB tuned, hopefully next week sometime.

Yea, I'm glad I filled that empty spot.

It's not a hard stretch, I mounted it specifically so I don't have to turn around to grab it.

If I'm driving around using it, I just set the mic in my lap, then but it in the holder when I'm done

x2.
"learn how to drive"
"hang up the phone"
"You Ma'am, have a nice rack"
those would be my most common used phrases, I'd probably record them for use i'd use them so much.

that's what I thought. There's gotta be a better way though. Not a fan of wires dangling from under the truck...

The grommet in the firewall is better, but the grommet and extra hole I drilled are already full from the power wires of the amps and driving lights I have

I had my antenna mounted there... It ended up chipping the paint off the hood and fender from the antenna moving.... So i then bought the mount from Alon for the rear... loved it!
