Installed the Cobra 75 CB today along with Quadratec spare tire mount and antenna quick release. I removed the clip mount from the back of the hand mic and used Velcro to mount it. This will work for me as it an occasional use CB and from this position it is easy to turn on just to listen too. Also got the hard top on for winter. Installed straight to the battery and there is very little engine noise. Thanks to all for the info.
