Installing a CB into my Jk - upper dash panel - Hunty's JK

Hi Guyz
I finally got around to installing my CB (cut the cables ties that were holding it onto the top of the dash LoL)
I have looked and looked for a CB with a remote control on the Mic that I could bury behind the dash but alas I could not find 1 that would do both the old 27Meg & UHF - I really get a lot of valuable highway information from the truckers that mainly still use 27Meg - so I decided to see if I could cut my Uniden 95sx dual band (UHF & 27meg) into the top of the panel.

Step 1 Mark it out carefully - LoL
Step 2 Remove the top by prying of the top plastic cover - rear first!
Step 3 Remove - unplug the Compass / direction sensor
Step 4 Using a sharp knife carefully cut out the top of the stereo
Step 5 Same Knife - cut the plastic top
Step 6 Test fit
Step 7 reconnect compass / direction sensor
Enjoy
cheers Hunty

Looks good!

Q (and maybe this would be self evident if I took my top dash panel off), but what are the mounting options like under there?

I'm guessing in the land down under.

Looks nice. How is it secured to the dash?
P.S. your steering wheel is installed on the wrong side.

Clean install you did there. Did it mess with your compass at all?

Welcome to the forum and I'm guessing a cheers or g'day is in order.

So I was doing a google search on something completely unrelated to Jeeps and I stumbled across this guy "Hunty" on a Aussie Jeep forum. I get to the part where he talks about his CB and I realize I had seen it before here.

Anyway, here is his entire thread from that forum. He's got some pretty cool stuff going on.
