No,it's the stock dash colors.But I sprayed the chrome bezel around the shifter with Tremclad Textured semi gloss black.Got tired of scrathes that were in it after cleaning the dust off the soft chrome.It's been painted for over a year and it still looks great.

It's not mounted to the counsole.They are mounted to the Ram Mount pole for my laptop.I fabed all the mounts myself after looking at a Ram Mount because the Ram mount wasn't quite right.The pole was over too far to the passeger side so it would crowd the passenger.

Re: CB radio installed! Where to mount the antenna?

I have the same set up as JonJon. I recommend it too. I just need to find a location to mount it.

Fatfreddy, Zach Morris called, he wants his cell phone back.

You can just unscrew the antenna from the mount. I wouldn't remove the mount every time you are done, though. I would be concerned with the holes opening up over time.

I use the laptop for GPS mapping and for editing and sending photos when I am mobile.That is why I have 2 cell phones.I use one of them for a mobile data link with the laptop.There is very few WiFi hot spots where I live so I use the cell phone/laptop.Can't use a new smart phone because of where I live there is a dead spot in cell coverage so I have to have an external high gain antennae hooked to the cell phones.I even have to hook up the cells to a cell phone antennae I have on the roof of my house so I can use them at home.None of the new cell phones have the jack in them anymore to hook antennaes to them.Plus it makes for a cool look inside the Jeep if you like that sort of thing.
