How's everyone doing?? Haven't checked in a while. Been busy learning the ropes. Upgraded to solo driver now for a few months in my own company truck loving the road except when it snows. Lol! So my ??? I'm sure has been asked again and again but I'm dropping this load tomorrow and will be by a company yard and would like to finally have my CB RADIO installed. I'm going with the cobra 25 ltd classic. Just wondering what all do I really need to buy along with the actual radio and mic as far as antennas and cable and everything else that is needed for a cb just want it to get great reception and people clearly hear me and I hear them. I know everyone is busy doing there thing but any advice will greatly help dnt want to buy things I won't really need. Have until Monday as the shop is closed Sunday. Hope to hear from anyone Thanks again TT members

I'm pretty sure all the Frieghtliner Cascadia's come with the antenna already installed in the roof. The Swift trucks also already have a mounting plate installed on the dash. If your truck doesn't have them. About all you need is the mount, and an antenna kit consisting of the antenna, the mount for it and the coaxial cable. The radio itself should have everything you need to actually hook it up.

Oh you might also want to consider an external speaker.
