    These guys are rip off artists and price gougers. I bought a new Ranger 2970n2 and was overcharged almost $100 over what the price should have been. The radio had to be sent back to Ranger for warranty work because the alignment was all screwed up. Radio was drawing almost 60 amps on high power. Even the guys at Ranger were shocked at the price they charged me. Shop around and check prices before you buy from this hole.

    Are you surprised? Most, if not all CB shops in truck stops, overcharge on their radios.

    Another to avoid is Mr. CB in the Petro at exit 28 Oak Grove MO. Aside from selling brand new General Lee's for $300, he also is known for butchering up radios and making them sound like pure crap.

    Every retailer has a markup. This one seems excessive, though. I wouldn't trust any CB shop that is inside a truck stop. Actually, I only trust one and it is on Bardstown Road (a busy urban street in downtown Louisville)
