This innovative new mounting system lets you mount your CB to the open space just off to the side of your steering wheel. Locating the CB into this gap does not block your vision but allows for easy access to the CB controls. Each mounting bracket installs to existing dash mounts and is custom fit for TJ Wranglers so there is no drilling required. Each mounting bracket also includes an easy to use microphone mounting plate so your CB microphone stays out of the way while driving. CB mounting bracket not included (should be a part of the CB system). Limited three year warranty. Wont work with aftermarket Cage kits.
I had to cut off 5/8" to be able to install it without hitting the dash. That was enough to cut off one of the mounting slots. How can their design be that bad!
4.0Not bad, could be better
Tight fit, but looks good once in there. Be sure to use the padding provided to fit between the dash and the metal plate. I didn't like the suggested use for the mouthpiece bracket. I moved it to the driver's side of the steering wheel, then had to alter the provided hardware. I also used a bit of lock-tite to keep the cb from sliding along the rugged ridge product.

3.0Took some finesse
This product work well in that I did not have to add any more hole to the dash to install it but the top plate that the cb mounts on was a little to wide to fit perfectly in the space so I had to bend it a bit so it would fit and I could close my door. I have half doors with a hard top fill in so this may not be a problem with full doors.
This is my 3rd product from Rugged Ridge and will be the last. This item is no different than the others. Mounting holes miss drilled, screws provided were wrong size and it rubs the dash. Obviously Rugged Ridge does not install their products during the design process. Of course, if you are willing to accept the fact that you will have to modify, bend and redrill to make it fit then this is the company for you! No reflection on 4 Wheel Parts but now I understand why they don't stock their items but they should at least warn you ahead of time.
