    That is a great use for that worthless space. It would be perfect in my 4Runner too. It would be even better, if I didn't have a sunroof.

    The 2900 replaced the 2800.

    Pretty common install within Tacoma circles. Ashtray location. Imounted the external speaker in front of the shifter. I had a firestick antenna mounted to my bed rack, but have since moved it to the front corner of the bed. The bedrack mounting didn't work when the RTT was mounted.





    if you look closely you can see the antenna location at the front corner of the bed behind the cab. Magmount antenna for the HAM on the roof.

    Cobra 75wxst with the control box under the dash and I hang the radio from my mirror. You can barely make it out through the front window. I have a 2' Firestik mounted on my swingout tire carrier. This setup seems to work good. Now I just need to find room to mount my HAM radio.

    So, Photog, where and how do you plan to install your dual-band amateur radio ?
