According to this article, single DIN is about 7" wide by 2" high (depths vary).

The Cobra is 7.0 x 1.88 x 6.5. Does yours measure the same as this?

Yeah... I measured and the thing is too long in each direction. It is really wierd. So I pulled the cup holders (the only real reason to run a tuffy )and installed the CB for the wheeling season, or until the wallet swells enough to get into the Ham stuff at which time one of the spaces will get filled, and the CB can be moved to the spreaders in the front cage... down the road you see.

Here is where the CB lives after tonights mod party

Looks like it is a slightly different radio. Here is a pic of mine:

Matt, it is for sure, it is about an 1/8" bigger on all sides. I even tried to pull the case off and get it to go in... no go

What is the specific model on yours?

Thanks Matt!

Nice job on the plug, Drew. I like Matt's CB setup in his 80. Since I went with the Scion radio , which is double DIN, I'll probably put my CB for my 80 on the back of the center console.

Mine is an 18 WX ST II. Looks like Cobra still sells the same model (same link as in post above).

Purchased it here:

Radio Service Center
918 South Sheridan Boulevard
Denver, CO 80226
(303) 922-8107

The nice thing about buying a CB radio from them is that they can tune your radio for maximum performance. You buy a new radio from them, then pay an extra fee (like $30) for them to open the radio and tune it up. You'll have better transmission power than a stock, out-of-the-box radio.

It's more money, but you'll get better results.

What about these two. Not the cheapest solution but might be worth if just to free up the space.

or this with the mobile adapter

I have the Midland, got it at Wal-mart for $90 it think? That price included the mobile adapter.
