    Sweet lift, I'm sure your going to love it! Looks like the install was pretty straight forward. Let us know how it rides!

    I mounted the CB under the glovebox. I ran the wires through the passenger side firewall to the battery. Pretty easy install.

    Can you post a pic of it? Also how did you run your antenna wire?

    As mentioned, I mounted the actual CB under the Glove box

    I actually zip tied it in place rather than drilling holes. No issues, its on there nice and solid.

    I ran the wires under the dash and through the passenger side firewall

    I ran the antenna coax cable down the passenger side, under the BedTread and plastic trim, under the passenger side cargo carpet following the wiring harness that goes to the tail lights. I then routed it under the plastic trim and through the tailgate trim piece. This way there were no wire sticking out of anywhere and it gives me a clean look.

    From the tailgate, I routed the coax around through the vent in the tailgate, through a corner of the EVO Gateplate and up to the antenna.

    IMG_1526.jpg

    Once I routed my license plate/3rd brake light in, I had 2 wires sticking out of the same corner, so I cleaned up the look a little with some wire loom cover I had left over from my windshield lights. I picked it up at Lowes for like 5 bucks for 12 feet or something like that.

    You can see it in these pics here:

    I used a Cool Tec mount for the handmike. I love that it doesn't take up much space in the cab and it looks real clean.

    Hope this helps some!

    Nice build Jake. I love my 4" Enforcer lift! It performs great on the trail and on the road.

    I also am running the little Cobra 75 and have it mounted similar to how AllAmericanInfidel has his. I don't get much range on mine although I tuned the SWR to a good number. The range is pretty much line of site depending on the terrain but it works good and I love the compactness of it.

    Yea that's the only thing I am worried about when it comes to the 75. I'll be going on a lot of trips with my wife and I was going to use it to tune into some trucker frequencies to get info about future traffic. If that makes any sense. Also, with it being in your glove box are you able to access it to tune it to different stations?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
