Overhead radio mounting - like old Kilby overhead console?

I am looking for an overhead platform to mount up a CB as well as accessory lighting switches, etc. I know about the overhead security consoles, but I am looking more for an easier to use system like the old Kilby overhead consoles that were, in effect, two layers of aluminum that had a space in between for wiring, etc, had rolled edges to look nice, etc.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the link, but to my knowledge Kilby Enterprises is out of business?

I had that same concole in my TJ and loved it - hoping to find a replica...

Thanks!

Not exactly out of business, but in new hands or something. I sent off an email inquiring about the rear cargo panels. I got a message back that they were not planning on making any unless demand went up.

The message was signed "C U Offroad".

A quick google led me to this: http://www.cuoffroad.com/

'76 CJ-7, '43 CJ-2a, '78 Bronco,'78 CJ-7, '75 CJ-5, '78 CJ-7, '80 CJ-7, '78 SJ, '79 SJ, '78 and a '76 FJ-40 , '90 XJ, '91 XJ, '86 CJ-7, '95 ZJ, '68 CJ-101 Commando, '00 TJ, '68 M-715, 2 '86 Military Blazers, '96 LR Discovery, '86 CJ-7, '91 YJ, '99 TJ, 07' JKU Rubi, 1988 YJ, 1973 Commando, 3 Diesel Excursions....
Now back to a 2013 JKU Rubicon with "stuff", planning 37's with minimal lift.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)
