I know that a bunch of us have bought the Midland 75-822 and it seems almost that is has become the unofficial NCFJ CB, but I thought it would be cool to see WHO actually owns what..chime in with your info.

That's one more benefit for the manual transmission, no shift linkages under there! There really is a lot of unused space below that area for the 6MT's so I figured I'd take advantage of it so I wasn't wasting any other valuable space for a CB.

Do you have an external speaker? I was curious how muffled the 'stock' CB's speaker would be concealed under the console.

I'd planned on an external speaker but honestly I don't need it. The only time I have issues is at 70mph down the highway with my bald mud tires roaring and the volume only at 1/2. Otherwise, the internal speaker seems to resonate nicely through the console, almost amplifying it. I still consider running an 1/8 jack out of it to the aux input on my radio, but so far I haven't done it.

The hardest part of the install was making a custom connector for the CB antenna since I needed a 90 degree adapter that no one makes (not enough room below the radio for a standard antenna).

Awesome to hear that the sound is good! What kind of 90 did you need, coax?

Well, the rear most part of the CB I'm using is the antenna jack. I wanted to set the unit as low into the console as possible, so I've only got an 1/8" from the tranny tunnel to the antenna jack, so I just made my own extremely low profile 90 elbow that's no more than 1/16" thick. It works well and I got my SWR around 1.5 or a little lower.
