    is it to install a CB into a vehicle...i figure with my pretty strong knowledge of automotive wiring and electricity (what i do at work), i can install a CB radio..so how long do you guys think it would take someone to install their first CB, on a scale of 1-5, one being easy, 5 being hard, how difficult could it possibly be? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    i put one in last weekend. Its not to hard. Alot of drilling though. I put on twin firestiks so I had to drill 4 big holes in each door to get the cable from outside to inside. Id give it a 2 on a scale from 1 to 10.

    Connect one wire to power, one wire to ground, and screw in the coax connection at the back. Drilling holes for the mounting bracket usually takes the most amount of time. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
