    Had a 75, couldn’t hear it on the highway. Swapped to a midland much better.

    I have a Cobra 19DXIV. Fits in the center console of my JK, so its discreet. There are refurbished ones on ebay for $30 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cobra-19-DX...0AAOSwA~VaOXFF

    I wired an external speaker to mine - cut out the foam around the roll cage above the driver's seat - so you can hear just fine at any speed and with the windows rolled down: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01K7O0EM2/

    I’ve ran several over the years. I’m not a fan of the cobra 75. Cobra 29 is the best radio in my opinion!!

    I'm guessing the mount works with the soft top?

    I run a Midland 1001LWX in a rugged ridge bracket over the rear view mirror. Works great, has weather channels, and cost about $45.

    Looked the Midland 1001LWX looks pretty good. I do like the weather options. How's the sound?

    Loud. Can hear it naked at 80 with loud tires very clearly. NOAA stations come in great. Decent distance on it as well.

    Yup, speaker is loud enough. Especially being mounted overhead. The cobra 75 has a tiny speaker.

    Forget the CB IMO, Get a handheld (Midland 75-822), and go FM (Race Radio) hard mounted. WAY better option!!

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.
