My CB Radio install

My truck is down at the moment due to a bad oil cooler so I took some time to mount my cb while I'm waiting for parts.

What do you think?


My poor little truck I can't wait to get her back on the road.

That looks real good!
I was thinking about mounting my Uniden CB there, it is smaller so I wouldn't have to trim the opening.

How do you like that Cobra Bluetooth CB? Looks like a great unit.

I don't use the bluetooth as much as I thought I would but when I do use it it seems to work great. The CB worked ok it seems like I wasn't getting a good range but I had a little short 2 foot ant. on my Escalade I'm going to have a bigger ant on the 350 so hopefully that helps.

I got that alot! We used the escalade to pull our travel trailer and the CB is nice to have when your going down the road late at night. I don't have pics of it in the Escalade but I had it mounted so most people didn't even know it was there.
