    Hey, I am looking to add a cb to my rig but not sure where to mount it. I had seen somewhere a setup that mounts above the windshield and had some sort of pockets in it but I can't remember where. If anyone has any Ideas on a good place or where to find this piece let me Know. Thanks for the help.

    Check out and search the "Outfitting" section of this site - seems like I've seen a ton of threads dedicated to this. If there's not one for the 60, you can start one there - the advice you get will come from 40-100 series guys...might be cf some help...

    "Candorage"? what is that, other than your username?

    I think that a trick place to mount it would be in a Tuffy console, instead of a head unit. That's what I would do.

    Thanks for the tip, I posted there hopefully I will figure something out. Most say to mount it in the space under the radio, but I would prefer a top unit. The one I saw was neat, and had some storage space as well.

    Im thinking about using the Cobra 75WXST. It's small and everything is basically compacted in the handpiece.

    Hey I found what I was after, If anyone else is looking for something like this they call it the over head tray It's on page 278 or part #278-106-BN on the sor website online catalog . It's supposed to mount in a way that your mirror and visors stay in their stock location should be ok..Thanks for the advise and stuff though...

    Mini - if you install it make sure to give us an update and review. looks nice and compact. wonder if the "brain" would fit behind our glove box?
