Alright. We ended up getting one on amazon and it is getting shipped so we will get it on Thursday. As soon as that thing is in our hands we'll head down to Evans
Thanks to everyone for all your help and input

FWIW, mounting a CB just take s little creativity. I cut into my dash and mounted the control unit right underneath my steering wheel. It sort of rests right on top of some of the plastic plumbing for the driver side vents. It took some grumbling, and it isn't even close to a clean install, but it isn't intruding on any of my precious cabin space and it isn't in plain sight or subject to the elements.

Its a Jeep. It isn't supposed to be pretty.

My OCD says- maybe not pretty, but clean. We ended up getting a handheld because in the new Rubis there really aren't too many places to put one where it woudn't get in the way. It was a smart decision for us because we can also opt to take it out when we go hiking.

I hear you there.I tried several different places to mount one on my TJ and finally ended up mounting it onto my cage between the spreader bars:

It worked out very well but you need to have a cage to do it (at least a sport cage).

Yeah we have a cage, but if you have seen the Rubis they have a weird plastic part between the front and backseat. Don't like it but its a small price to pay for a jeep.

Was that the pipe you threw in there, or is it tube?

1 more vote for the all in the handset style. $65 is a good deal for a like new unit Wang.

Recently got a CB myself but haven't had a chance to test it out....how important is tuning it with that SWR meter? I assume it's either gonna work or not work, and if it doesn't work well then I'll have to start playing with it...

It will likely work well enough to pick up people close enough on the trail.
