Looks good! I'm putting mine in the center console as well. I'm about half way through my CB install. I have the antenna cable ran and that's it right now. I just need to wait till Wednesday when I'm at the farm to install the rest of it because I don't have any tools here.

Did you just tap into the 12v accessories outlet for power?

Yup....tapped a little hole in the back and tapped into the cig outlet.....yellow blue is power and black is ground.....I'm runnin my Wilson 1000 coax thru the rear cab light and through that way.....I don't want a bunch oh coax slapping around in the wind......lol



The console fits a cobra 25 nicely.....cobra 25 has MUCH better receive and noise suppression than thos tiny radios.....

I just bought a Cobra 19 Ultra III. It's small but I only bought it as something fun to do. Ya I wanted to tap into the 12v accessories outlet in the center console that way it will turn on and off with the ignition. I ran my antenna under the driver seat, under the kick panels and out the rear cab vent. I'm going to make a mount when I have access to my scrap metal pile at the farm. It's going to attach to the side utilitrak in the bed.

The 19 has an external speaker and pa option which I may get in the future but haven't decided on yet. Can you hear the CB pretty well in the center console with the lid closed?

Mines in the knee panel, works good because of the front speaker.
I really need to get a Right Angle connector for the mike tho..

I really like that look and all but I can't justify cutting a hole in my dash for a CB. Especially if I want to upgrade to a nicer one down the road.
