    What is everyone running in theirs? I see a ton of us with the antennas.
    VHF? CB? what brand/model? loving? hating?
    Wondering what to pop into mine since we have the cord holes in the center console and might as well use it.

    Like most answers, this one is "It depends on what you are going to be doing with the truck". Very generally, people involved with off road racing (chase trucks, fuel pits, etc.)use business class VHF radios. I think in the RV/desert camping/trail-riding group the choice is probably more toward CB radios. I suggest you go to the site - https://www.pciraceradios.com - it is very informative. Good luck.

    I'm running a Powerwerx DB-750X. VHF/UHF ham radio. I've had it for close to a year and I'm pretty happy with it.

    We run the Icom 5021 radio mounted in the center console. Have an external speaker mounted under the front seat and ran all the cabling through the base of the center console. For antenna mounts, we run the BulletProof third brake light antenna mount. This is one of the best machined (machined from a single piece of billet aluminum) pieces we've ever seen. Installation is very simple as well.

    Unfortunately no pics, sold the truck. The speaker was mounted to the rear seat under storage box and aimed up towards the drivers seat. Worked well unless there was too much gear on the floor and then the speaker would be blocked.
