Thanks. I know its not the best looking rig out there, but you got to start somewhere.

Looks good bro! Love that action shot. NOW STEALTH THAT BUMPER OUT! :)
That's the plan.

Great start! Clean lookin X. Your planned CB mounting spot is where I mounted mine. Here's how mine looked I really like the location.
One thing you might notice, I don't have as much room behind the CB and the dash. The antenna cable does not fit and I will hit the CB with the shifter in first and possible third. I need to drill the plastic to route the cable through it and get it far enough back for clearance. That's the reason it is still to be installed after having it for three months. Guess I am just lazy.

Looks good

For exaust a lot like magnaflows... I will be getting a flowmaster super 44 but thats just me

also i would recommend a tuner, hypertech or bullydog, and also get a IMS spacer you will not regret it
I have the Flowmaster Super 44 and I love it! Feels punchier at the throttle then the Magnaflow I replaced. I have the tail pipe cut off after the muffler and scooped down but surprisingly it's not that much louder.

Nice build . I have the same uniden 520xl mounted in the same spot too. I notched the back of the console so it sits back further .
