I am planning on putting a CB in my truck. Today I've been searching on line for ideas since I currently have a 6 speed.

I decided that an overhead console would be the best place for one. Little did I know that there isn't much out there for doing this so I decided that I'll build my own...

THAT started a new search for ideas... I finally found a place in Australia that makes them. GREAT place for ideas since they have pics of various builds with many different components.

Anybody else built one or purchased one like these?

I haven't built really custum one I just covered a piece of plywood with carpet and mounted it up there and then mounted the cb to it. But I have heard that uniden makes a radio that is the size of a stereo so you could mount it in the stereo hole with an aftermarket stereo. The cb is a uniden 880.

Those are pretty nice looking setups.

For my truck I have a Cobra 29 and I mounted it inside of the factor overhead console. I think it comes in 05+ Lariat trucks without a sunroof. Took a good bit of modifications but works pretty good and keeps it up and out of the way.

I'll likely build one that will fit a CB at the front, DVD player, and room for about three gauges under the CB if I can fit'em. Might put a couple storage compartments also. On the driver side I'll fit in my XM display if I can make it look right.
