I have been researching how to relocate the CB to the ceiling of the truck, and it looks doable. The only question I have is where do you get the little holder thing that brings the mic back after you use it?


let me know when you figure it out mine has to stay where it is for awhile longer well I chase some miles

I was flipping through an LMC Magazine today, saw a shelf that screws into the windshield visors on the inside of your truck. I saw it my Chevy magazine, not sure if they have it for Dodge/Ford. Looks like it would really help to put a CB inside of it along with other goodies.

They make them for Ford and Dodge too.
Buddy has one in his Dodge.
Only thing I didn't like was it puts the visors down too far to be of any use.

I've looked at those overhead shelves but I just can't commit to spending that kind of money I'd want to see one in person but I haven't been able to yet...

Did you guys ever figure out how to mount those CBs to the roof top?

Let me offer this bit of info.  I'm a magnet freak and use them for a variety of purposes.  The ones I like are the "rare earth" magnets I typically find on eBay.  Some people who say they love me actually make fun of me and my magnets, but I usually end up proving them WRONG which is worth the price of the magnets...

In my work truck I have a couple that attach to the roof of the cab  thru the rather thick headliner and it almost takes two hands to get it loose.  I could surely see a cb bracket being mounted with them and feel VERY confident it would stay where put.  My wife has even used them to mount curtain rods on the windows adjacent to the front door rather than using screws.  She doesn't make as much fun of me as she used to by the way.  

(Caution: You do have to consider that magnets are not a good companion for computers some other electronics stuff when in close proximity so keep this in mind.)

My CB rack is a seat-bolt mount that works great. Geno's garage out of Georgia sells them for 45.00. As for the mic keeper/retractor, there is a lady on ebay that sells them cheap with prints etc. She can even make a custom one for you.

I used to have an older Dodge truck that had a removeable headliner and the ceiling undernieth  was all metal. I had 2 old antenna mags, drilled the holes bigger in the cb mount, bolted the mags on and stuck it to the roof... never moved the whole time I owned the truck.
I'd do it again in a heartbeat if I knew my 03 could be done that way.

Automatic aux/main fuel gauge and pump.
Prodigy p3 because ram controller is trash.
Boost control is a must for constant changes in loaded/empty weight.
