Where to Install my CB?

Hey Guys, I am new to the forums, Just bought a 2000 F250 Lariat with the 7.3, I wanted to see where you guys may have placed your cbs, I have the vinyl floors, but figure I probably shouldnt drill into it, I have the Cobra 29 Classic, Pics would be helpful, Thanks!!!!

would I be alright drilling into the floor like you did? the floor is vinyl and it feels soft under it.

Also, where did you get the diamond plate?

Thanks

looks good, do you have any issues when wheeling or anything with it moving around?

any pics of that? how did you secure it up there? what mount did you use?

2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!

I have mine mounted vertical in front of the center seat. its got about 1" of space between the seat and the CB. holds half rolls of Copenhagen perfectly. I modified a standard bracket and mounted to the floor.
