Do you get any feed back? I get some feed back on mine. It gets so bad when my HIDs are on, I have to trun my squelch almost all the way up. I can really hear anybody, when I can hear people I do a test but I never get a response. Any ideas???

Heres a link to the post I did right after I got everything installed. Mostly I use it for weather and traffic updates and sometimes I'll give out directions to people.

I have a Cobra 29 LTD with bluetooth that I have used for several years but, I bought my Silverado with the full console and really didn't know where I was going to mount it. I really wanted a custom look, so I bought a Cobra 75 WX ST mic/radio.
67738
I mounted the remote connector box under the dash.
67682
An add-a-curcuit for a power connect and grounded it on the silver bolt.
67706
I Screwed the mic hook next to the passenger airbag switch.
67714
The bed rail holes were full so I opted for an under the hood mount and fished the cable through the electrical harness boot.
67722
And, my choice of antenna was a matching Wilson Trucker, which fits in the storage box under the rear seat when not in use.

Iv got a cobra 19 DX IV, ya know the cheap one from Wally world. I Had an older antenna that I rigged up in the bed so that it used one of the post holes and a piece of wood so i didnt drill into the bed but the top half of the antenna the screw rusted it because this antenna was from the 70's or 80's... so im planning on buying a firestik with a hood mount. when it worked i never had any problems with mine

jpcourtney;
want to do the same with my cb antenna. Where did you get the mount and do you have a pic or link that shows it? My magnet mount isn't as good as a whip would be.
