Mine has been and always will be in the center of my dash. Not where most people place it tho...
Simple double sided tape is what's holding the bracket. Been there since 97

That's my scanner beside it but it was just in there temporarily

I like how it looks between the sun visors.

In our old OBS it was mounted at the bottom to the bottom of the dash, close to the brake controller, switch panels, and some other stuff. It was pretty nice there. I'll be getting some ideas from this thread on where to mount mine when i get one.

I've been wanting to put a CB in for a while now for when im on the road. But i'll have to put it on the dash or between the visors, I've got a brake controller and shifter that keep me from putting it under the dash
