I'm no expert but unless you're getting an over powered radio you don't need anything fancy like those metal antennas. Those are for high wattage. I think the most important thing is that its height is as high as the truck to eliminate as much interference. I would just get a basic fire stick and the length of the whip determines on what truck you get.

A stock radio, with a stock antennae will work. You just might get only half a mile. I had my radio tuned and with the larger whip can pull in about 4 miles. That's all I want but you can always get bigger stronger systems.

i have a 102" whip in my garage that i ran on my ford ranger many many years ago.. made it look like a big RC car lmao

Scott, if you're driving for Schneider, they don't allow hands free devices when you are driving. You can only use the phone when you are stopped or parked, hands free or not. I assume that applies to CB radio use also.

i was gonna.. but those 2 items and a few other issues i read up on about them turned me away. going West Side Transport
