CB in the Ashtray
After seeing several people do this, I thought it was the perfect place to put the CB. After all, I don't smoke, and don't like others smoking in my truck. I used the Cobra Ultra 19 model, but I have heard of others that will fit also.
For mine, I removed the ash tray, then removed the unit that the ash tray slides on. In the back of the area I use a knife to cut some plastic to allow room for the wiring and for the CB to slide all the way in. I found that the plastic in the back actually holds the CB in place, and I don't have any screws or other fasteners holding it in place.
Since this CB has a bottom firing speaker, I attached a small external CB speaker to the side of my CB amp. I really like the way this has worked out, and it hasn't given me any problems since I have had it this way.
