I no longer have the Kenwood POS. I now have a Yeasu FT-7800R mounted there.
I'm intrigued by the red wire... looks like a very nifty idea.MrJeep said:I owned two TJ's before this and never found this very simple, very unobtrusive place to mount the CB until now:
4 zip ties hold it on and all the wires hide under the roll bar padding. I never know it's there when I don't need it. When I do need it, the mic hangs on the red wire you see running between the roll bar and the tie down on the windshield frame putting it in the best place to talk and drive.
That's where mine is too. But I use a mic 'C' clip and just hang it from the cb box when not in use.MrJeep said:I owned two TJ's before this and never found this very simple, very unobtrusive place to mount the CB until now:
How about one of these heavy duty key holders. Probably better than the trucker's deal. Attach the mic to it. Mounted to the front ... say on the footman loop. That way the cb cord is stretched forward and not swinging..... It should be heavy enough to return the mic and keep it from swinging at rest.desertfox1 said:MrJeep said:nope, those retractable thingers like trucker's stores sell won't work for me either, because they dangle too much, resulting in a "swinging mic". meaning the mic hangs down too low from the the clip that the retractor has on it.... usually you have a clip, the retractor, a loop or ring, then another clip, so by the time all is said and done, the mic hangs down about 3-4 inches from the surface that the retractor is clipped to, which would be fine for mall wheeling, but that's not how we use our rigs.
the red wire trick as given me a few ideas...
i just bought this mount, im glad to hear that it is well liked. ill keep posted on how the install goesMrJeep said:, this is my antenna mount, it is the best one I ever found for a Wrangler. It's sold on eBay by arizrockyroad. I can't recommend it enough.
WOW!!! a truckers dream rig in a Jeep! 10-4 goodbuddy, cya on the flipflop flapjack. Sorry it's what I do for a living.arjeeper said:Here are some pics of my Galaxy DX93T 10 Meter mounted overhead in my 06 Rubicon Unlimited using a Arizona Rocky Road overhead mount. The install was easy and the mount is very sturdy... even for a large radio such as this.
