CB Set Ups Lets See What You Got.

Hey guys I was just thinking it would be kinda fun to see what kinda CB set up everyone uses if you have one. Show or tell where you mounted everything. And if you have a CB name and use, let us know.

don't have a picture nor do i have a CB yet but after a lot of research and I have decided either a sidemount (Firestik M-2) with a 4' FireFly or a Drifter with a 5' Firestick. the one advantage to the side mount is that it puts half the antenna above the truck. the driver only puts 2/5 of the antenna above the room. granted the 5' is more powerful the other one will have a better range. a couple more weeks and i will make my final decision. lol and as long as drifter makes some more mounts. Will be running a Midland 1001LWX radio.

I've got a couple but haven't installed one yet. I'm thinking of mounting it below the stereo where the little cubby is.

This combo has worked great for me so far. Good range, and I don't have to leave it in the truck or drive around town with a CB antenna inviting meth heads to break into my truck.

Pretty easy install, too. Smile

I've got one of each. I don't know which one I will install yet. Probably the smaller one. I believe it is an Uniden.
