Default Hmmm... online CB purchase?

Need a CB for my 'new' ride (I sold the '93 pickup to a friend, got an '01 4Runner Limited - auto - for my lovely bride and her bad back, and inherited her '97 4Runner affectionately known as Green Chili). Mostly for hunting communications where I am the ONLY ham present, so ham won't work.

Google is my friend.
Stumbled across these guys:
http://www.rightchannelradios.com/je...510xl-418.html

They seem super customer oriented from what I read of the reviews (and yeah, some reviews are not exactly glowing but positive ("these guys walk on water, turned my CB into gold bullion, and PAID ME to ship it back to me". Nah. Name:  nah.gif
Views: 115
Size:  2.2 KB).

Lots more options than, and looks to be the same tuneup as, the grumpy old men on Sheridan. Not that I would fault someone for being a grumpy old man or anything. At about the same price or maybe less.

Thought I would share and maybe find out if anyone has done business with them.

[edit]
Now THIS looks interesting...

Better price, not as good an antenna if bought together:

Check out the reviews though. Not so much.

He posted in our vendor section and seems like they have it together

Exactly! I have been researching a setup just like that. Would be nice to support one of our vendors, too.

I don't know if i'd consider him "our vendor". All they did was post on our forum to advertise their business. I'm not aware they have supported us in any way.

Huh. Those seatcovers just might work. PM me with how much you want. I assume they are the tight fitting variety like what Jerry at Burt/Groove sold for a while?

Trunk lip mount?
Where were you going to mount it on the 80?
