I have been trying to figure out the best way to get my CB mounted in my jeep. I didn’t want to buy the pre-made expensive ones :(.
So I figured I would try this out. It worked well for me.
The 60" self track was too wide so it had to be cut down to size. I ended up cutting it to about 51 inches. Then angled the ends so it ended up looking a bit like this /__________________\ so it follows the roof line inside a bit.
I also took out two slots on each side (the 1st and 3rd), leaving the 2nd slot in place. This worked really well to thread the hose clamps though.
My next challenge is getting a new cb antenna and mount it behind the spare tire. Still researching the best way to do that.
Overall a great article – heck I was able to follow it and set everything up in an afternoon.
To mount the cb antenna you can look on ebay. I bought one that mounts to the spare tire bracket. You still have the use of the spare tire. Its just a flat bar with a piece of square metal going up with a flat spot on top. Cheap payed twenty bucks for it. Wheeled with it and had not problems with it.
