Pictures of Ham & CB Radio & antenna install on 2014 Silverado


Recommended Posts

I need some ideas so I'm interested to see pictures of what anyone has done with any custom installations of Ham Radio, CB Radio and antennas on their 2014 Silverado.

I Bought my 2015 Sierra about a week ago and I have been working this over in my mind. I have the Console in the middle which I love. I think I have a solution but cant figure out how to get my wires into the console without too much damage.

I started an install of my yaseu ft8800 today. I installed the radio under the back seat in the bracket where the jack goes (jack going in tool box now). Got my wires run to the battery, but now I need to figure out how to hook up 12v.

 

Never seen a battery with so many posts to pull power from. If any one had experience with this, you input would be appreciated.

Would you be able to share pictures inside your cab? I'd also like to get more information (or see pictures) from your auxiliary battery install.

Bought my 2015 last Saturday, and have been plotting the installation of my CB and antenna ever since.

Here's mine, maybe a little different then what's wanted but it works great with an excellent SWR. Just got to ground the antenna sense it's attached to an aluminum tool box.

A neat little bracket to mount the CB without drilling any holes is use the Hump Mount brackets, I saw on Amazon for $7.29. I used this in a few different trucks and it works great - very sturdy and does not slide around unless you hit giant bumps.

 

Go to Amazon and search:

PROCOMM JBC1000 Universal Hump Mount - Sawtooth design

 

And for me, I used Wilson 5000 Magnet mount Antennae, I put mine right in the middle of the roof. It worked great.

That's good to know, I had seen this before but couldn't find it. I was worried about it sliding but I'm glad to hear you have had good luck with it.
