    Default Just got the CB installed.

    Check it out, just added the CB to the counter-measures. So far I haven't really gotten anything useful out of it but I have only been driving with it for an hour so... what can you really expect.

    The piece is machined roughly 2-3 inches back through the dash with a custom bracket. Hopefully I'll get some good saves out of it! Hopefully I'll be able to get my LI on order within the next couple of months here and I can get my idea for the kill switches going... but until then here is my setup:

    Very Nice Install!


    I just hope you checked your SWR ratio's before going through all that work!


    At any rate, it looks extremely nice, the radio almost seems factory (to a degree). I really think you will get some amazing saves out of that unit. Top notch work.

    Good job on your install. You will learn to love your CB when you see how well it works on the highway. You didn't mention the SWR, you do need to set it if you haven't already.

    Thanks guys, I think it turned out very well.

    I am going to be swinging by the local CB shop later in the week to get it tuned. I'll let you know the results in this thread =)

    Nice clean install ! Very similar to the location in my SRT4, tucked in low and out of the way.

    Mine gives me warnings almost every time I get behind the wheel. A driver gave me a heads-up on a trooper behind me while driving locally today. I never saw him but I KNEW he was back there

    You'll find that it's useful anywhere there are big trucks on the road. I'm finding that transmitting isn't necessary because trucks transmit a LOT longer range than we can with our shorter antennas/trunk mounts. Plus a lot of those guys must use amps.

    Anyway, welcome to the club! Just wait until you get near a metro area on the interstate You'll be a believer!

    nice install... looks good... if there are not many cb'ers in your area, then its time to "preach the word"!!!
