nice
i think i have either 18 or 20 ft of coax and its really hidden.
my cb is mounted next to the drivers knee and i had just enough to reach but you can get more slack if needed by moving the coax under the passenger side a little bit but where it wont get stepped on.

you dont want it steeped on and tape it down cause you dont want it to kink either

I've got the same set up with same firestick/cobra weather radio and for some reason it gets really bad reception and it's really hard to hear when people talk. The only way I can hear with it is when the person I'm talking to is right in front of me and the stereo is totally off. I think I saw something about putting a ground on the tailgate or some shiot like that. I also have a cobra 125 classic w/4'firestick and bootleg azz visegrip mount on my Ranger that blows the weather radio out of the water. It is so loud and clear that I usually leave the volume 1/4 to 1/3 the way up. It looks super tacky though so I'm going to leave it out of the JK. Plus I like having the weather in the JK for the family.

I thought the guy had good prices. I could have gotten the CB for 8-10 bucks cheaper on Amazon but he had everything and shipped it within hours of the order. I like supporting the little guys too.

Unfortunately, my good deeds to the small guy goes punished again.

I haven't heard anything from the seller in a week after 2 emails. I called their phone and it's disconnected.

I'm disputing the claim with PayPal now. Not worried since I was backed up by AmExp who has never let me down in a dispute yet.

Now look for another CB vendor. Suggestions to get everything at one place?
