• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Jeeps are kind of unique in that they don't have a lot of mounting options....especially when running with the soft top....but I came across some "lobster" mounts from a GPS supplier, and things worked out pretty good, but I had to bolt them to the dash. Considering the amount of "jarring" my Jeep goes through, they hold up very well.

Pro 96 on the left (police, fire, federal) and the Pro 97 on the right (comm and military air). One speaker between the two radios and the other speaker mounted on top of the windshield frame. (power speakers only...Jeeps are very noisy)

Used tail light cb mounts for the specrtrum on one side, and a RS mag mount on the other.

Looks good but I would maybe invest in a couple of 90 degree bnc elbows to keep those cables down flat and out of the way.

Great looking set-up. Unfortunatley here in Michigan, that would be considered obstruction of view. Better to look at something eye-view than take your eyes off the road for a few seconds. Anyone ever think about a Heads up display? I've done a couple firetrucks with MDT display and engine diagnostics a couple years ago. Way too expensive to get off the ground. Not very good if traveling into the bright sun. Perfect at night.

Have to agree with the nice HU display BUT...must also agree with the obstructed view concerns. A little box type Whistler Radar Detector nearly cost me my little CJ5 once and I'm well over 6' tall. Be Safe!
