I use some of the same stuff on my WJ, and I like it. Good reception with firestick, I do however run the CB through an AUX input on the stereo for sound though. I can never get good sound out of cobra. Not a big deal to me though.

bumpin an old thread.

I want to buy a CB and this is the same set up I was thinking about getting. I am sold on the mount and the firestick but I am curious what other CB's folks use and like.

I ended up getting this one http://www.amazon.com/Cobra-75WXST-4...3281797&sr=8-2. It has worked great for me. Love to use it when there is bad weather and that around the state to help track whats going on.

Where do you guys plan on mounting the radio? In my WJ I had it in the center stack cubbyhole. In my WK I was going to mount it in the left-of-steering-wheel cubby hole but the adjustable pedals switch is there. I was thinking about relocating the pedal switch then molding the radio face plate into the older style cubby hole... if I can find a paint that matches the interior color.

not sure yet, I don't want to use the cubbyhole because I want to mount my switches there at some point.

Throw that little guy in the center counsel and then modify alittle hole for the hand piece to stick out of.

Bump again for a good thread. I really like the idea of using the AUX to run the CB through the radio. When i get around to installing my cb i would like to do the same thing though i want to re locate the wires for the AUX input just behind the knee panel so i can switch out between different aux input items if needed w/o removing the radio. also doing a magnetic antenna so it can be removed easily instead of a firestick at least for now since i dont get to use my CB enough to make it worth having a permanently mounted antenna.

Anybody have a CB mounted in a WK that is not located in the cubby hole? I can't decide where to put mine.
