Doug S.'s Bio

I am the fleet manager for small construction company. I started as a gopher, worked up to welder/mechanic. Ended up getting my class A license. We bought a 2002 Landoll 660 and rebuilt it like new. Then bought a 2017 T880 to pull it around. I drive maybe once a week, if lucky, hauling heavy equipment within the Long Beach/Los Angeles area. Most of my days consists of inspections and paperwork.

CB radio advice

Hi, I have a 2017 T880. I had the same trouble. Theres a lack of ground. The wrong wire. And several fittings between the antenna and the radio.

I ran a new harness for two antennas. Took the antenna mount and sanded the inside underneath and ran a ground wire to the firewall.

Installed two new antennas. It was a pain.

If you don't own your truck just run one antenna on the driver side and get the mount from wolcott. Run a new coax without all the extra fittings.

I would just call Wolcott and tell them what you have and ask their advice. They told me to just run the one side with a new wire and mount but i wanted to use the factory routing and dual antennas. It took me a while and you have to take half of your plastic stuff off inside the truck.
