Where did you put the mic and body of the radio?
Tim ... I put the body of the radio under the passenger seat. The mic extension box is mounted to the side of the shift selector. I did not secure the mic. A small extension speaker is fastened (hot glue) to the front of the storage console.

I just got my technician license and after looking at the various mobile ham radios out there I have decided on the Yaesu FTM-300DR as well. Looks like a great radio for the Jeep. Thanks for sharing your install pics. I will be mounting under the drivers seat as I have my air compressor mounted under the passenger seat. I was looking at the same idea for mounting the display, but will probably mount my mic under the display or next to it since I have a manual transmission.

I put my display up on the dash.

I laid my windshield down and installed a nut-cert and a 20mm ball.
