Nice, gotta get Travis in on da CB! Compared to the other upgrades he has in line, it's a pretty cheap investment!

Yep, I'm pretty pleased it. The range is nothing spectacular, but it's loud and clear on the trail.

Same here, I'm pretty sure having a short antenna (3-4ft) and the tip coming up less than a foot above the roof line makes for short range. IIRC a 102" whip that is very well grounded is the only way to be getting 10+ mile range and that is still very limited by weather conditions and interference.

I ordered it from Northridge 4x4 the Monday before the last run, it's a coast double cardan that was supposed to ship the next day. I called Thursday and was told it will be here this coming Monday. 2 weeks, but hey the shipping was free that will probably be my first and last order to them.
It would be nice to have a big convoy down to JeepBeach! This is our first time going and only my second time to FL. Looking forward to it!

That would be great. My wife and I are staying at my stepmothers time share just down the road from the event. But the host hotel is 99-149 a night if you pre register.
I'm hoping the Coast DS works out well. I got the rear control arms on finally, so she should be ready to play.

Did you get a front or rear driveshaft? Or both? Let me know if you need any help getting it on your jeep. Or if you just need some company when you put it on. I'll bring a 6-pack of your favorite cold beverage!

I just got the front DS for now, a year and a half with the 4.5" lift an the factory DS was starting to spit some grease. It's still good, I just pulled it before problems arose. Always room for company when doing mods, I'll let you know when I go to do it. I also plan on a rear shaft, but that will be later this summer.
