    Thought I'd share, I have an Icom ID-4100a, and found that it tucks up perfectly on the driver's side behind the OBD port. The head unit for this radio also fits perfectly in front of the gear shifter (will add a photo of it later.)

    That's a great find, how did you route power and the antenna lines? I will probably be installing another Kenwood and want to avoid blocking the underseat vents.

    @ormandj I ran the power, a cat5 extension cable for the mic, and head unit control wire on the cross member tight under the steering wheel and wired it into the always-on of the aux switches if I remember right.

    I have the mic extension cable come up inside the e-brake housing and have the coiled mic cable come out above the e-brake.

    Antenna wire runs down the drivers-side under the carpet to the rear of the jeep, but I'm going to find a mount for the hood cowling below the driver-side A-pillar and move the antenna there for SWR reasons.

    Very clean look overall...

    Where did you place the head unit? Any pics? I am considering the same radio.
