Yeah, I probably won't end up getting rid of my mineral grey. Just a thought. Apparently the plastidip is pretty forgiving. I might do it, then if I don't like it just peel it right off. I've done my emblems and some of my grille so far. The stuff's pretty cool.

Wow Matt! That looks like a lot of work. I hope you paced yourself over 2 days. As a Black Ram owner, I know how much effort it takes to clean the whole thing.




IDK about these swamp rats and the beer they drink.

Added a 102" whip to the truck this weekend. Got too drunk to install cb, but at least I got this done
Decided to with the ball mount and spring, just because it looks good. Cost a shit load more though

On a good day where skip conditions are good I would be able to. But I'd have a better chance using my Stryker with the 1000 watt amp. My General Lee is going in the dodge, and it only does 150-175 watts

Yea it sits right at 13' 4" high. Power lines are generally higher than 15'. I was gonna mount the whip on the top of the headache rack but that would put me at 15'3" high I think. And that's cutting it too close LOL. My antenna on the big truck sits at 14'2" high and gets a lot of interference when going under lines

I'm gonna screw the mount into the dash, right above the little cubbyhole that holds two cans of dip above the radio. If it didn't have the amp on the back of the radio I would be able to scoot it back a bit. But the amp adds like 5" to the back so it cuts down on mounting locations. And besides its the only logical place to put it in my mind. Haven't quite figured out where I'm gonna run the wires but ill probably cut a hole in the dash and run them thru there. Just depends on how shitty it'll look when done

Got the radio mounted up. Now I just have to figure out where I'm gonna come in with the coax. Might just drill a hole in the floorboard and put a bunch of putty around it to keep water out.
I went with the standard cb mount. Drilled two 5/16" holes in dash and put the flat bar under the dash so the radio would pull on it instead of just two bolts. In the process I screwed up my Mic when taking it out the big truck, but it wad enough to check my SWRs. With amp off it doesn't even move the needle. With the amp on I have a 1.1:0 SWR. Which is good enough for me to leave the shit alone
Next time I come home ill finish everything up. I have to make time for beer drinking
I also used some sticky wire holder things to try and keep the wires nice and tidy. But I'm not too convinced that I like the way they look. Might have to change that up too
