    Question about Rugged Ridge CB mount

    Does the Rugged Ridge CB mount interfere with Freedom Panels on a hard top? Second question, do you like it? Problems, concerns?

    I ran this mount before I got my rock hard cage and I really liked it. Tons of room a Above it so I don't think it will interfere.

    I have a full sized Cobra 29 LX on it and it works great. I had to drill some new holes in the mount to get it centered between the visors, but other that that no complaints. Can't say for sure with the freedom panels since I run a soft top, but it looks like it would be fine...

    Probably a small one, like a Uniden Pro520XL

    I have the same CB, and was worried with that mount it would hang too low and obstruct the rear view mirror. In the end I made my own.. Stupid easy, and has held up great.

    On the smaller ones I have seen they work great. Larger, no clue

    I'm not a fan of the cable dangling in my view.

    I mounted mine in front of that crappy blown out mesh sack in the center console.

    It will work with the hard top freedom panels or a soft top. It works great for smaller CBs. With the larger CBs, it actually sits them on the mirror and doesn't allow you to adjust the mirror.

    I love my RR CB mount. You can let the cable dangle or it has a loop to get it up out of the way! Makes your CB easy to hear too! I would definitely recommend.

“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.
