CB Radio ideas?

I did a quick search, but I could be fail, lol...

Anyway, I know some of you must have CB radios installed in your WK? I have a Uniden PC78LTW (see below), so it's a full sized unit:




Well, being it's so big and we have limited options, I am wondering where you guys have installed them? Getting another one is not really an option, as I really like this one and have had it in both my ZR2 and ZJ 5.9. I have an external speaker, so am not concerned about that, but do want good access to it.

The only place I found is below the glovebox; I made an extension for the bracket and it looks like it would be semi-functional there, but before I install, maybe I'm missing a good spot?

Oh yeah, holes have to be hidden or use existing screws...

Re: CB Radio ideas?

Heard a few people wanting to fab up a dash mount for it and have a single din unit source for their radio and have their CB's below it. I think you MIGHT have to do some modifications to make them both fit and with a bezel to go around both cleanly.

Re: CB Radio ideas?

Wow, people still use these?? I have one in the basement, but since the evolution of cell phone and 2-way radios that reach many miles, I didn't think CBs were still in use.

Re: CB Radio ideas?

I've seen a few mounted vertically on the back-side of the center console, between the front seats. Looks good, and it's really functional IMO

Re: CB Radio ideas?

Well, nothing beats the CB when wheeling with a group of vehicles and it's fun on a caravan. Two-way radios work as well and have used them, but they have their limitations, also. I don't like to rely on cellphone coverage and rather just stow it away, as part of the idea for me to go out is to get away from that stuff and not be so readily available

I was looking at the area behind the console and it's a possible location. The bad part is having visible holes later on and removing practical visibility. It seems below the dash on the passenger side will be where I'll put it and had an idea, but not gonna say anything until it's done

Still, I would like to see others locations and what their using...
