What CB Installed? What Antenna?

Just installed a little Uniden XL520PRO CB into the dash with external speaker and mounted a 3' Firestik Firefly up top on center rollbar. You?

I've got a very old cobra that I've installed in 3 different rigs, plus a mini uniden that's almost as old. Neither are currently installed. But everytime I kick over the antenna I think about installing them lol.

Just this morning I finally got mine fully installed and functional. Local CB shop figured out that a little 90 degree connector was faulty. Replaced that and now I got a good CB. It's nice! Now I can put my dash back together. :-)

To be clear, I did the install myself but the CB wasn't sending/receiving worth jack. That's the last time I buy the cheapest part thinking I'll get top of the line performance!
