Depending on size, you can put it in the little cubbyhole below the stock head unit.

I really recommend if you replace the stock headunit, put one under the new one.

Another option would be to do some minor hack n' wack... and stick it in the ash tray location. That and the bay right below the radio are both popular choices for CB radios here... do some searching, and you should be able to easily find examples of both

Uniden (and some others) make very compact units.

The head unit is connected to an XM tuner. Just below that is an ICOM 2 meter radio. Below that is a Uniden CB. The portable unit on the right is a Sirius tuner. It's mounted to a laptop support.

Well, with satellite radio I never listen to that AM/FM thing. :D

CB is the most popular way to communicate out on the trail, but the 2 meter rig is the way to go if you need to get help.

I'm getting a CB soon. Probably gonna go with a Cobra 18 WX ST II Mobile CB and a 4' Firestik FL. Should this be a good setup for a first-timer. Never messed with CB before really, and I am not looking for super-long range comms, just something to play with with friends...
