    I'm looking for the best setup I can install on the 2020 VNL760 my company put me into in July. I don't really know a lot about CB's, and only in the last year began to really use one consistently. Currently I'm running a Cobra 29-LX using OEM everything, and my range sucks. I'm considering just going to a CB shop to have it tuned, but I've read several threads with differing opinions on dual vs single antennas, bigger coax, amplifiers, etc, and am a bit overwhelmed to be honest. Right now I'm looking to get the best range I can while using the factory antenna mounts, and am open to the use of an amplifier or bigger coax if it's really necessary. Does anyone have any suggestions on what my best options would be?

    I've got a 20 volvo,with a cobra 29,that I had tuned by Rick at Overclocked Electronics in Gary,In with a cobra 300 speaker sitting on the dash.

    The antennas I put on are 4ft skipshooter's,ran new coaxle cable on the driveside,left the passengerside stock just matched the antenna.

    Gets out decent.

    I would personally go the cheaper route 1st...
    Run your own coax,better ant.stud and a single antenna..Im a fan of skip shooter as well...Have a shop tune the antenna with a analyzer vs anything you can do on yer own within your limits..
    Leave the radio alone cause 9 times outta 10 its the poor poor poor factory antenna set up
    There is a ton of variables that can cause issues within an antenna set up...
    A poor ant with a kick ### radio does nothin BUT a really good ant set up(rf grounding,tune,coax )and a basic factory tune radio will work way better..
