Where to mount my CB and speaker

I was wondering if anyone had pictures or suggestions to where to mount my CB. I wanted to mount it where the cup holder was but it is too long. I have an external speaker and a Cobra 25 classic. Any pics or suggesions?

Mount it on the lower dash panel to the left of the cigarrett lighter.

I've got mine mounted right under the little cubby hole in the dash below the 4x4 switch. That way it's really easy to reach. My external speaker I routed the wires under the dash and under the weather stripping up the side of the door and across teh top of the dash. I tucked the wires down below the back of the dash then two-sided taped the speaker to the dash so it was facing me. It works good and there's not wires everywhere.

That's what I did...mounted a piece of wood behind the headliner to secure to. Everything seems to be fine...no engine noise plus don't need an external speaker!

I put mine overhead in my 97, but in my 02 I have a sunroof, so I couldn't do that. I fabbed up a bracket and mounted it to the floor. I really like it this way. My external speaker's just wired throught the dash and it sits on the dash in the corner facing me.

This is an old pic and the truck is dirty, but you get the idea.

Why even bother with the wood, I don't understand?

My 97 I think I just used self-tapping screws into the sheet metal. It has a double liner. It was super solid this way.
