Cobra CB installed

In our Toyota FJ Cruiser build there is not much room for the installation of a CB radio. We also only use the CB during trail runs when others do not have a HAM radio. With this in mind I selected a the Cobra 75 WX ST for installation in our FJ.

Cobra 75 WX ST

The Cobra 75 WX ST takes very little room. The interconnect module provides both the power and antenna connection and it is connected to the radio / hand mic via a 5 pin connector.

Interconnect Module

The Cobra 75 WX ST is one of the more compact radios available.

Radio Connection

I installed this module behind the dash on the passenger side. The radio connection is mounted in the dash. What I like about this radio is that I can leave it stored and when needed I hook it up and with the antenna already in place it is ready to go.

Radio Connected to System

The antenna is mounted using a Bandi Mount that is available from All Pro Off Road.

Cost:

  • Radio: $100.00
  • Bandi Mount: $37.95
  • Antenna: $19.99

Time: 1.5 hours (With interior removed)

    I have a 2010 Army Green FJ, and am enjoying your posts about the mods you are doing. I want to install my Cobra 75 wx st like you have, but I am not sure how to mount it where you did. Did you remove the dash or go through the glove box? To what did you mount the interconnect module, and how did you mount it? Thanks for your time,and I look forward to more posts, keep up the good work!

      I removed the glove box and the panel that is above it.
