ye, just get a cobra 29 ltd, and mod it some by replacing the final with a palomar fet and a good mobile antenna capable atleast handling 250 watts

Thanks. Total newb here, so the palomar is the amp? Is it easy to make this mod, like just plug and play, or is it more complicated than that?

your welcome. palomar makes amplifiers and transistors, possibly more. a linear amp would be plug and play, but it would take up space, as you would need a 30-50 amps to power the amp depending on the amplifier's build class.

if you go with just the palomar fet transistor, you should be fine with just 20 amps. you will need to solder in the replacement final transistor if you go that route, but it'll save space in your truck.

if you have the money, you can buy the radio off ebay with that mod already done.

Ask yourself, is there anyone you want to talk to on that CB?
