Any thoughts on a good place to mount a CB?

I have a 96 F250, and I want to mount a CB in it. Its an automatic so maby on the floor? I just don't know how much room I have to work with until I drill into the tranny. I don't want to drill into the dash, just because it would leave holes, even thought that would be a perfect place. I also thought about fabricating something up to have it kind of leaning on the cupholders, or on the top inbetween the visors. I don't know, I have alot of options, I was just wandering what your thoughts are, and where you've mounted yours.

I got a small piece of 1" x 1/8" aluminum, cut two holes in it and screwed it in under each sun visor mount and hung the CB from it. Wiring went up the pillar and across. Real clean and real easy and I didn't have to modify a single thing. I'll get a pic if you want

Thanks and Gig 'Em!

i just mounted mine next to my 4wheel drive shifter about 6in right from it giving me enough room to still put the truck in 4wheel drive. my buddy has an 02 cummins. we mounted his under the middle seat. we had to take the seat out to mount it and it was a *****, but you cant see it. he has a microphone that he can change his channel with so he doesnt need to have quick access to his cb. it was a son of a ***** to install but it looks good. just another idea. we were gonna do it to mine but i just got a cheap cb and didnt want to fork the cash out for the mic.

Mine is under the ash tray and the mic is hanging on the side of the CB next to the 4X4 shifter.

Hmm.. I wonder if I could fit mine into the ashtray opening? It's wasted space as is.

I have a full size chassis radio so it will not go in the cubby hole or in the ash tray hole. What I did was I made an aluminum plate that mounts in all of the original screw holes for the ash tray. It provided a flat SOLID plate to mount the CB and linear to. It worked great. I sold that truck but kept the mount. I am going to put it in my 97 but have not done it. I will post up some pictures when I get around to doing it. JJ

I have used a Ram b-111 in the past and plan on using it again as soon as I find me a radio. It works extremely well.
