The new CB radio mount was designed to incorporate a simple mounting bracket that secures to the windshield frame, above the rearview mirror, utilizing the factory hardware. The installation is made clean and simple as there is no drilling required.

The radio mount is crafted with a universal pattern allowing it to work with most radio manufacturers mounting brackets and places the CB unit at a higher elevation allowing the driver to focus entirely on the road and eliminating the need to reach across the center console to reach for the microphone or change the channel.

“When we designed the CB mount, we wanted drivers to
have effortless access to the controls and displays,” says
Alain Eboli, Engineering Manager at Omix-ADA / Rugged Ridge. “We believe that doing so will increase safety while driving and providing easy radio access.”

Constructed of Q235 Steel and finished in Gloss Black Powder Coat, the CB Radio mount is built to look great and last for years to come. Each CB Radio Mount is backed by an industry-leading five year limited warranty and is available at an MSRP of $26.99.

All sewn seams use marine grade thread, ensuring it does not deteriorate or discolor from the sun.

“We wanted to raise the bar in bowless and frameless JK soft top design by creating a more affordable, quieter and better fitting top, which is something that hasn’t been seen until now,” said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “We couldn’t be more proud to add this our already impressive lineup of soft tops.”

“We couldn’t be more proud to offer the Exo-Top™ to an entire new segment of Jeep owners,” said Patrick Bennett, Product Development Manager at Omix-ADA. “As the first product to combine a soft top and roof rack into one convenient, easy to use system, we created the Exo-Top™ as an affordable way for JK Wrangler owners to make their Jeep the most usable and enjoyable in any setting.”
