    I mounted a CB in my 07's center console. I use a wireless mic setup. Not sure how much space you have in the 3rd gen console.

    Have tried to look at RAM mounts (http://www.rammount.com/) that connect either to the seat bolt or to the floor.

    Hey 16cmt:

    When you figure out where you mount your CB, take notes and push to the forum.

    What antenna bracket were u able to use on your 3rd generation tundra? I'm looking into a fender mount attachment, and haven't had any luck finding one.

    Not sure if fender mount is the best way to go. Actually very sure not the best location. Forward mount on driver side, or rear bed mount with an antenna at least 1 foot from metal and at least 1 foot higher.

    i have the 5' firestick as well. right now i'm too lazy to order the quick detach. For now i just set my cb on the center console on top of the blue microfiber towel and pushed it back to where the toothpaste box as temporary use (pic in early post) i'm considering a ram mount possibly later. looking good there trd15559!
