Have tuned in the SWR and everything, maybe I just need a good external speaker. Yay, more cramming stuff in parts of the cab where it wasn't meant to be! Maybe someone who knows CBs can give me some advice?

No, that's pretty much how CB land is, a external speaker will help but not with everyone and their stupid echoey microphones... That's why whenever I go out with other people I give them handheld VHF radios because it works so much better. lol

Don't forget the ones that scream directly on the mic or hold it against their mouth. I was going to see if I could talk to the people I was hearing to figure out how far my CB was reaching, but it was pointless. Could only understand every other word. The NOAA weatherband channels are the best thing ever, though! Are all three of your whips (the ones on the sides and the roof) for CB, or do each have their own purpose?

If people can call gas vehicles "gassers", then can we call diesel vehicles "dieselers"?
Last I checked a gasser is a type of drag car. Get it right.

I did the newbie trail with it. If I didn't care about the paint I could do a lot with it, but I didnt buy it to wheel. Its a truck, not a Jeep. I'll go out for some light fun once in a while but it's no longer a hobby of mine.
