CB Mounting in 94 Loyale?
Posted 31 January 2004 - 03:18 AM
Just purchased a new Uniden PC68LTW, a medium sized CB.
I was curious to find out if any of you guys had one in your cars and could help me figure out where to mount this. I would probably run the power to the fuse box (is this safe for the radio?)
Where could the CB go thats not to hard to reach and in a protected area.
I have the 94 loyale wagon, is there any antenna mounts that would be good to get, im probably going to get the Firestik antenna with the tuneable tip. So would I be able to buy a mount that clips onto the trunk hatch area, or bumper, ect..?
Pics would be helpful also
Appriciate any help

I did not see and you didn't say on your page; did you fuse both power wires? This is important!
Also, tear out your interior?.......Geez.......I was able to install my radio in my '87 without drilling through the firewall or removing the carpet.................mounted my radio under the passenger seat, mic clipped to the side of the console; along with an external speaker. Control head is mounted to the dash, directly above the A/C vents. Power wires were snaked under the carpet and up behind the A/C box......from there, you can go through the big rubber grommet near the Vacuum reservoir. The wires go vertical here, then across and under the lip above the spare and over to the battery. Two hour install, very easy......I went with a mag mount, since I have 50w out, gain is not a necessity.

I actually didnt have to drill the firewall, I just poked through an existing gromit (but I dont have AC, the AC uses that hole for a drip tube I think)
I only fused ONE wire, the CB came that way. I belive its the positive one.

Anyone know where a good spot to mount a antenna to a Soob wagon?
Would the top of the trunk hatch work?

A trunk "lip mount" might work on the tail-gate hatch.......most of them will angle in most directions.
I use a mag-mount, but am planning on going to the "hole-in-the-roof" NMO Motorola style mount..............It's not high on my priority list right now.............
Let us know what you decide to go with and maybe a link to a pic so we can see how it looks...........

I used an inner fender mount for mine (it screws down into the mounting tab where the fender and the engine well meet as well as to the seam (opening) between the hood and fender... no screws are visible when the hood is closed.
