Exclamation CB Radio in Empty Overhead Cubby??

Who here has put a CB radio in their open overhead cubby? I know some guys here don't have the cubby. I assume if you have the sunroof, you won't have the cubby. Also, I don't know if the 99-04's have the cubby. I know my 07 does though. Anyways, I bought a Cobra 29 Classic online...still waiting for delivery...but then I realized I didn't check to see if it would fit in the overhead cubby. Really stupid, I know.


Anyone fit a Cobra Classic in there? Anyone have pics of it? Thanks in advance!!

Isn't the Cobra 75 a small, portable one? It looks like this?


I bought the Cobra 29. Looks like this:


The dimensions listed on the Cobra website are 2.25" tall x 7.25" wide x 8.63" long. I really don't know if it'll fit in the cubby. I also THINK your '01 will have a different cubby than my '07? I don't know for sure. But I know someone with an '04 on here didn't know what I was talking about when I mentioned the unused overhead cubby lol

This is a picture of the cubby in the overhead console of an 06. But it's the same thing in the 07's.

I installed my icom IC-2200h in the overhead compartment, the dimensions for that radio are 5 1/2(W) 1 9/16(H) 7 3/4(D) inches and it fits perfectly inside the black part on the inside.
