Assuming you have a tuneable tip, spin it one way or the other replace tip cap. Repeat. If you keep getting way high readings your ground sucks and needs attention, thatís where a grounding strap comes in. Make sure everything thatíll be installed on the Jeep is there when you tune it, tire carrier etc.

    Hereís the how to i follow

    Edit: I misread your post and did not see the "set up a CB" part...haha. Hopefully you'll still find this helpful.
    Thank you for the links! It seemed easy enough. I tend to like to over educate myself before digging into something new. Appreciate the help.

    Different topic, but what is the accents name on your Jeep that you got those for your air vents? I'm looking for dark blue/blue colors. If you don't mind!

    That said, a 3' or 4' firestick antenna with good ground and tuned SWR should still work on the spare tire carrier.

    Also check that you have the correct length of coax cable between the antenna and radio. If not, you'll never be able to dial in the SWR.

    I actually just painted them. You can get color matched spray paint from quadratec. Itís a little price but is worth it.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
