Mines right under the 4x4 switch, where most people put a brake controller. You cant pretty put it anywhere you want, you jsut have to make it work. Ive seen them in the dash and various other plaves.

Here is a good information link on CB's.. The range of signal is not too good right now.. the sun spots, etc have mess up the conditions.. I believe it run a cycles..

This is how Billy Bob mounted his CB, and since Jeff pointed me to his pictures, it's also how I plan on mounting mine.

That looks pretty nice Stewart. I gotta join the club and get a CB but the van turbo is priority right now...

I had the trashbag holder instead of the ashtray in my truck, so I removed it and cut out an aluminum plate to fill the hole and then mounted the cb under the cup holder (also removed and alum switch plate there now)

My cubby hole has the power inverter and because I have the underdash gaugepod (that I prefer over he apillar pod) I mounted the brake controller above the hood latch to the left of the parking brake release. It all seems to be placed really well I think.

Had mine mounted just like this very easy to reach while driving and such. Only problem I had was I had manual shift 4WD and it would get in the way a little from time to time.
