    Hey guys i just bought a new DD/tow rig last week. Its a 99 dodge ram 3/4 ton quad cab long bed not a diesel- just a 360 but it will work for what i need. Its loaded every option. And has aftermarket sun visior and grille inserts. Lifted 3" with 31" tires.

    One of the first things i wanna do is put my cb stuff in this truck. What i wanna know is where should i mount the cb itself? i cant find a good location and i dont wanna hack anything since this is a really nice truck.

    Also what brand of crossover tool box do you all like/recomend? and what about a brush/grill guard?
    Ill post up pics tomorrow.

    Thanks brad.

    Your Ram looks good man. I see you have the charcoal grey "black in my book" leather interior. Thats one of my favorite parts about these 2nd gen Dodges, they have the best leather seats I have ever seen in a vehicle. The leather isn't quite as "soft" as GM's, but thats because it's twice as thick, double stitched, and very durable.

    That was one of the things I HAD to have in my Ram back when I was searching for my truck, black leather or I'm walking....:bow:

    Where to mount cb?

    Well it looks like the only good spot to mount the cb is in between the front seats in front of the flip down arm rest- coming up from the floor.
    What do you all think about that idea? and to all of you with 2nd gen dodge rams, where did you mount your cb's? if u have one.



    Thanks brad
