    CB BAR - Jeep JL Wrangler NO DRILL / NO CUT Overhead CB Radio Mount INSTALLATION

    Just wanted to share my install using the CB Bar and a Uniden 505. For those wanting to run a smaller radio, I can confirm that the Uniden 510, 520, & 505 will mount up without modifications using the bracket that comes with the radio. Bracket lines up with with the smaller holes on the CB Bar, just need to buy 1-1/2Ē long bolts, washers, & nuts for install. Due to the small size of these radios it is not possible to clip the mic on the side of the radio. Using an idea from another member here, I glued a small round magnet to the back of the mic, I can now secure the mic anywhere on the CB Bar.
    I think it came out great, really happy with the CB Bar, thanks Eddie!

    So the wires under the dash, you can tap into the auxiliary switches from there or the engine compartment ?

    Both locations should have the wiring. I helped a buddy on his JL and they were under the glove box. Might as well pull the kick panel anyways because there's a great ground screw there.

    If you or anyone else hasn't found them, you may have to remove some tape to see them.

    I found it, my question was so thereís two places to tap in? Itís a good thing. I opted to put the cb to a switch so it shuts off when Iím out of the jeep. I constantly forget.

    Yes, there are 2 locations. I may have to do the same being that I tend to forget too. My only concern was that there might be noise in the line.

    I didnít do it on purpose. I thought the orange was a red wire🤣. My eyes are getting old.

    I need to ground the antenna then Iíll let you know if thereís interference.
