    Hi all, my new Anytone is too big to fit in the CB radio cubby hole. My company does not allow "modifications" to anchor radio to dash. Anyone have ideas how I can get my radio installed? Thx in advance!

    Considering not a single photo in that thread still works, I'm glad you can find it useful.

    I recommend smaller radios, like the new Pres Thomas that is full AM/FM and will fit into any CB radio cubby hole in any truck.

    That's too dangerous in the event of an accident.

    You can use something like RC car servo tape which is a godzilla strength 2 sided tape. I taped a CB onto the dash of my Nissan Pickup and it stayed until I pulled it out like 5 years later.

    Obviously, you’ve never seen OG freight driver’s radios. Those guys used to have a STACK of equipment bungeed to the dashboards of those old trucks. The big dogs had a set of cables down to the battery box, powering it all. They used to stomp on everyone. Now, you’re lucky to see a freight driver with a radio, at all. Times have definitely changed.

    Who said I never saw it?

    I never said nobody does it, I said that it's dangerous.

    I remember seeing some LTL guys waiting for their company shuttle to pick them up at a hotel. Their radio setups were so big they had a small hand truck setup to roll them to the truck. Lol

    Yes! Haha. I remember seeing one of those guys. I was like “What the heck is that?”. When he told me it was his CB, I couldn’t believe it. It was a stack of equipment built into a plywood box, with a handle on each side. Just incredible, the level those guys were at.

    My general lee has been velcroed on dash of cascadia for 3 years. It’s never moved.
    I’d be more worried about that giant toolbox flying.
