NICE! about how much has all the accessories cost you?
I've heard bad things about that brand of CB radio though, has it ever failed on you?

Thanks Everything I've installed is probably $1,500 - $2,000 ish.

I've never had problems with it, it never gets used anymore. Now that I'm a HAM operator, that's my main radio.

At 49, to the left of my truck is 49's actual storm chasing hummer. They're capable of live broadcasts with the microwave tower on the back. We stream via the internet live on the air.

This year we got a TON of snow. Actually had a snow storm knock out half the city's power this year, interesting night..

I run Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor's. They are awesome. Expensive, but well worth it. They have very high ratings on just about any terrain, do great in snow, mud, rain, etc and are quiet on the highway. Being a chaser, they see all kinds of terrain..
