CB radio..

Hello, was wondering if anyone has put a CB in their 250. I have an 07 and I dont know where a good spot for the radio itself would be. If anyone has mounted one could I get a pic? Thanks a lot.

I attached mine to the two holes that hold the panty hook inplace on the dash. I removed the factory screws, cut some stainless tube I had to extend it off the dash and put some longer bolts in works grate and no non factory holes in the dash

I built a carpeted box out of MDF. It just sits on top of the transmission hump area. It doesn't slide around or anything and it's wide enough not to roll over. I made a little youtube clip of it:
It's nice that I can just remove it whenever.

The one on the right is a 10m/CB antenna, and the one on the left is a 2m/440 dual band antenna which works for my scanner or my 2m/440 yaesu. If you remove the back brake light and drop down the headliner a little bit, you can see that installing an NMO mount is a pretty simple project.
