I was thinking about mounting a new stereo head unit and cb radio in the factory stereo dash opening. Has anybody tried this? I use an external speaker for the cb mounted at the top of the windshield. My initial idea is to fab some sort of bracket in the factory stereo location to mount both the stereo and cb with a custom blank cutout to surround the faces in the dash. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I have a 98 TJ and I assume the dashs are almost the same. If I understand you correctly, you want to put a stereo and a cb in the hole that the factory radio comes in right? I think there is only room for one or the other. I have seen people cut out the dash A/C vents and mount communicatins equip in there, but as far as squeezing both in the same hole.... good luck.

yep, you got the idea. I've measured what I could without pulling the factory stereo and it shouldn't be a problem as far as the opening in the dash bezel is concerned and there seems to be plenty of space inside. Keep in mind I use a small, cheap cb transceiver so only a small amount of space is needed for the face. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas like this or possibly seen a write-up for something similar?
