    Default Ham / CB radio mounting in FJ60

    I cant seem to find a good place to mount my Ham radio in my 60. There was a good place in the dash but I have that cool tilt meter in the hole.

    Hmmm... that is a tough one. Communication and situational awareness or a way-cool in-dash inclinometer that gives you unequivocal confirmation that you are leaning to one side or another or pitched fore or aft. This will take some thought...

    Have you already bought your radio? Or what brand do you have that you are trying to mount?

    I was wondering that too. Could be easier to find a spot for a removable faceplate model than a 1 piece. Means you need a more expensive dual band model though.

    I bolted one to the front of the center console in my BJ70, worked ok.
