Default New CB mounting location

Hey guys, I thought I'd share a new mounting location with you. I have yet to see anyone mount their CB radio into the center console just below the climate controls. It went much easier than I expected.

I chose a Uniden 520 Pro CB radio. I've got photos of the installation if there's any interest in seeing them. I can write up the whole installation...

It was pretty easy to do this installation. In this location, the radio is easy to see and use, yet inconspicuous and out of the way. It is far enough away from the shifter handles so as to not interfere whatsoever with shifting.

Now to route that antenna cable...

Hey Tom, good to see you posting! Hopefully jeep is running smoothly and the new gearing is serving it's purpose now that it's back in PNG
