Lots of use have. Some put the smaller ones in the center console. Others have used all in ones and just set it on the seat next to them. Mine is mounted to the dash.

I have a small one installed by my right leg - as soon as I get it back from the shop I'll post.

I have a full-size CB that was recently installed. I generally have it off, and on the floor of the rear seats. If I'm operating it, It's propped up on the center console.

I'm not sure where / how to mount it.

I like Len's solution, but I don't want it visible all the time.

Mine is mounted under the lash above my left knee. It fits fine and doesn't bug me even though it's big. If you sit further forward it may bump the knee though.



My antenna is mounted on the rear attached to the Gobi ladder.

The uniden 510XL is popular among jeep owners.

Center console in the passenger compartment. It does keep the seat from going all the way forward. The antenna is a problem. If you can attach it to a rack or ladder, like in the photos, that's great. I've got mine on the rear deck lip, using a bracket and it's killing the paint on the hatch.

My ham radio is an HT with a Pro Clip mount on the dash and the antenna mounted permanently on the roof. Much better set up.
