    I've not ran it but I have mixed feelings on it.

    For what you would pay to have a radio *properly* set up with it, you could almost go buy a 200 watt linear for less....and still come out ahead.

    But for someone who wants an "all-in-one" high power radio, it can be a good thing. Be advised it will get hot if you're long winded.

    I know some CB repairmen that stand by the mod and others that tell you to avert it completely.

    Good mod for a cobra 25 and 29. Setup right 100+ watts on those radios. They have issues on a lot of other radios from what I hear. You can have the mod done for under $100 an amp to put out similar power will cost more.

    I disagree,for the money and depending on the shop that does the install
    A RFX75 modded Cobra will out perform a similar radio and a 2 pill box.

    I too was once skeptical and to date have no regrets with my purchase.
    I recently acquired another unit (Cobra29) that was modded by Sparky's
    it "does not" perform as "good as" the unit from "customcbradios"

    The "Stealth"unit is a much better talker,mind you I run good a quality antenna with everything flat on all 40 which is a solid baseline to compare both units on.

    Will I purchase another ? NO these two should last a good while.
    If the "need" were there,YES and I will continue to recommend such for those that want great performance in a single package.

    These radios will "LIGHT-UP" some big wattage Amps so the upgradeabilty is there if needed.

    You guys know you can save a lot of money by gettting it here for $30.00 and then finding a cb shop that will install it.

    Very true BUT, do these other CB shops know how to do it correctly without the radio going south in a short time?

    I would much rather buy a stealth with the rfx installed from Doug at custom CB radios and know that it was done correctly and that it will last a good long time.

    Or Sparkys.

    Yes any CB shop can do the install, but how many of them can make it last?

    Give Sparky a call he'll be up front and tell you which radios can work right with it and which ones can't.

    I take it that CustomCBRadios is a good place to get a 10m?
