The antenna mount I made from a piece of angle. I think it's pretty much the same as the Saguaro mount. The pic is from the test fit. It's the same color as the truck now.(And straight)
Hello buddy..i love how your cb mounts there... i want to do same thing..how did u manage to go around the metal bar behind? regards

If you have any suggestions for that Id love to hear them.

Can you post some pics of the fuse you used and the add-a-fuse? I am going to install a CB and PA and need some assistance. Also, did any of you mount a PA? Location? I only plan to use it for a PA and "talk" to all the lovely drivers our there...so the smallest CB and best PA/Speaker combo is what im looking for. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
