    I've searched & searched & haven't found the answer. I'm thinking about putting a Uniden Pro 520 XL inside the center console (and having an external speaker). I mounted one in my father in law's JK, with slight console modifications. Has anyone done this on the JL? My JL isn't here yet to measure. Not interested in the all-in-ones (Cobra 75 WX ST, for example) - want to stick with my tried & true Pro 520XL (power output & modulation - gives great talk quality)
    Already have a ham license & dual band rig too. And a GMRS license. This is just for trail communications with the masses that have them.

    Thanks

    For some reason, the search feature doesn't bring this post up. I think you'll find tons of ideas here: https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/where-are-you-mounting-your-cb.6739/

    Enjoy!

    Ok so sorry for forgetting my center console has the divider in it and the the midland mx275 fits in it well I have the power and antenna wires run down the sides and to be honest I don’t really use my center console except for kind of a junk drawer.

    the radio is hard wired to the cig adapter which I bought the wiring harness adapter from Quadratec everything works great and is out of sight

    It’s is just dropped in there I was going to cut the one side of the divider to make it fit flat against the wall but since I don’t really use the area I didn’t bother
