I have the Cobra 75 and love it. It is paired with a 4ft firestick and clarity and range are both good.
i went with same set up ^^^, with the cooltech bracket. i just finished installing mine on friday night, used it for the first time saturday. loved it! some people have complianed that it isn't loud enough on the trail, but my jk has stock exhaust, and i stayed far behind the one dude in the group with no exhaust, so i didn't have any issues hearing at all.
although i was told on this forum that i would need to tune the firestick prior to use, i did not have access to an SWR, but it seemed to work well without having done so.
only thing i was disappointed, was that the antenna did not come with a coupler. nor did i know i needed one, until after i already had the plastics and carpet torn up laying the coax, and had the back gate torn apart. would have been nice for the antenna to have come with one, or provide better install instructions for chicks like me trying to figure it out for the first time.
edit: fyi, i installed the head unit behind the glove box. i removed the glovebox entirely. then i removed the dash plastic that sits directly below the glove box. you can see a metal bar off to the leftish. zip tied it there.
then ran the electrical to the always powered outlet. just removed the bottom section of the center dash, where your little net thing is. then pushed the two vertical pieces of dash that sit on either side of the center dash portion, pushed them apart enough to get the center part of the dash to unclip enough to get behind that power outlet to tap into it. i'm not gonna lie, there isn't a whole lotta room back there.
