5 speed with cb?

Im fixin to put a cobra 29lx into my truck and since my ashtray is busted and I dont smoke I'm gonna put the radio in its place. Has anyone else mounted a radio here and how much clearance is there with a 5 speed in overdrive? Pictures would be appreciated if possible thanks

My CB is mounted directly below the ashtray, almost at the bottom of the dash. It clears the shifter pretty nice.

My ashtray broke and presented the perfect spot for me to mount my large CB.

Not quite 99V!

Does not touch the CB in 5th at all, just got in from a 1200 mile round trip run last night. I took the mounting bracket, elongated the holes a little and used 2 of the screws for the ashtray frame and it fits like a glove.
