    This hobby begins as a search for the perfect setup, then gradually becomes the never ending discovery of the weakest link.

    Do you have any good pics of the tie rod flip? If not, could I bother you for some. A shot of each knuckle and shot of the drag link in relation to the trackbar.

    Shows ya how much I know :) His lift is similar to mine and I had heard you couldn't do a flip with a 2-3 lift. I am curious to see how it all lined up.

    First project that I did was to add a CB radio to the Jeep in preparation for the Bumpus Cove trip. This project took place in March 2011.

    Had to mount the bracket for the antenna. I purchased all of the equipment from WalcottCB.com. The bracket for the antenna mounted behind the taillight on the drivers side.

    Here is the location before the bracket.


    After disassembling the taillight and removing it from the Jeep. Then using the supplied hardware mounting the bracket behind the light housing, it looked like this.


    Then I went inside and started with the external trucker speaker. I thought about mounting it on the roll bar above/behind the driver seat but I didn't want to drill into the rollbar or extend the wiring for the speaker. So I found that it fit really well over the rear view mirror, so that's where it went.


    Then I wanted to mount the CB on the passenger side of the tunnel so I had to address the fact that is was going to get in the way of the passenger seat whenever you wanted access to the back seat (since the drivers seat does not slide forward, stupid design decision IMO). So I purchased a swivel pedestal and riveted the standard CB bracket to it then screwed it to the floor (after verifying I wasn't going to drill into any brake lines and such under the floor). Here is the mount folded down.


    Here is a good shot of the setup in position with the mic mounted low enough not to get in the way of the ignition.


    Then ran the antenna cable under the console, under the rear carpet and up the driver side of the bed. Coiled up the extra cable next to the rear of the jeep next to the rear rollbar mount and routed it out under the soft top. Mounted the antenna with then spring mount.


    Went through the manual and performed the tuning steps provided. This radio has some pretty good capabilities built in for tuning. I never had to touch the antenna. It has a lot of power and very clear.
    That's it for this little project.
