    stacks04, I want one like the one you got. I feel that there isn't enough flat area, or room, to mount a big one on my 1995, So i think that one behind the dash w/ the all in one mic would fit my needs well. :yesnod:

    I don't have a CB, but I do have a 2 way radio. Motorola Spectra 128 channel with DTMF mic. About a 50 watter

    yeah it is nice. lately i have been having an issue with reception. sometimes it works fine, other times its like i don't have an antenna hooked up. i have to look into it. hopefully it is just a ground.

    CBs in all our pickups and tractors and trucks and stuff. Handy. Antennaes mounted on the front of the box on the pickups.

    Trying to get one mounted in mine. Had/have one in every other of my rides.

    Just need to find a good place to mount it and the antenna and run some wire.

    yeah, but it is nice to have truckers tell you there is an accident 5 miles ahead, detour here....or there is a "gator" in the road middle lane, be careful....or even better, there is a "full grown" (cop) sitting behind the bridge at MM 99. So, whether it's 1978 or 2008, those things don't change.

    x2!!!!

    Plus, if you are stranded at a Wyoming truckstop in winter, the conversations are quite entertaining. It goes from talking about getting the truck loaded to getting yourself loaded, and where is the closest spot to do so!!! :cheers2:
