Hi Guys,

A mate has just bought a 98 Nissan GU ST and can't figure out the best place to mount his CB, and ideas or if anyone could let me know where they have theirs!

Thanks
Steve

seeing the uhf is not din size I wouldn't go the mount in the dash route. Also if he wants to mount the AM unit I'd look at a dept of the interior roof console. They look flash and use the factory interior lights etc and mount in exsiting holes in the roof.

I installed a roof console from Outback and installed mine there.
I have a 2003 GU.

I have seen installations where the original CD/Radio is removed (as it is 2 units in height) and installed another (1 Unit in size) in its place. You then have another (1 unit size) left to install the CB there. ( I am guessing the 98 GU is the same as mine)

I supposes thats OK if you want to upgrade the original Radio/Cassette/CD player as well.

Cheers.

Mounted mine vertically on the centre console next to my left leg when driving, so the face panel is level with the top of it. Great spot for it I reckon, easy to use, easy to mount and looks cool. Put an external speaker in front of the gearstick and it looks like it was made for it.

Steve, I have put my large, old style UHF at the rear of the centre console with the mic cable running up with the hand brake lever. Is hidden from view from outside of vehicle and once all adjustments are made (channel, volume, squelch) it is out of the way too.

I reckon the best thing to do is buy a dash pod and mount them in there. I use one for my HF radio and a voltmeter. My CB is a remote head one and the transciever unit is mounted in the RHS kick panel with the remote head mounted on the over head console. I have installed a few like this, but sometimes the different models have extra bits hidden in there, so you really need to check first.

Having the head facing the user is a lot easier to change channels etc than having the thing mounted sidewways as is sometimes the case with the aftermarket overhead consoles.
