Official Mopar JK Jeep CB Radio Kit
- Official Mopar Jeep CB kit
- Fantastic OEM installation look
- Designed around the popular Cobra 75 CB radio
We don't always get what we wish for, but sometimes the stars align! We're thrilled to Introduce the official Mopar Jeep JK CB kit. Perfect for 2011+ JK owners who need a reliable CB setup for off-piste adventures. The kit includes the Cobra 75 WX ST handheld radio, a 2011+ Jeep specific microphone mount, Jeep branded external speaker, and aluminum spare tire antenna mount with a 3' pre-turned antenna and 18' of coax cable. Even though the antenna is pre-turned, you'll want to check your setup with a SWR meter to be sure everything is working as it should.
*Note: The microphone mount will only fit 2011 and newer JK models. All the other parts will fit any year of JK Jeep.
|Model / SKU:|
JK Jeep owners want a CB kit with a factory, OEM installation look.
|Radio:||This kit is built around the Cobra 75 WX ST handheld CB. The Cobra 75 is ideal for Jeep and off-road vehicle owners who need an extremely compact CB unit, as all radio components are contained within the handset. Antenna attachment, power wiring and external speaker hookup all run through a small mounting box that can be tucked away for a clean installation. The radio includes 10 weather channels for monitoring conditions while on the trail, plus an extended two-year warranty for peace of mind.|
Included in the kit is 3' fiberglass antenna that is pre-tuned for the Jeep JK.
Included in the kit is an aluminum JK spare tire mount. This mount attaches to the factory bolt holes on the Jeep's spare tire carrier and includes all necessary mounting hardware. Because the mount is aluminum, you do not need to scrape off any coating to get it to ground properly.
This kit also includes an external speaker and Ring Coax Cable.
Just got my "Official Mopar Kit" and while The kit is what I expected it fell short in a couple of areas. First the antenna has to tuned by trimming the coiled wire at the tip of the antenna unlike some higher quality antennas that you turn a nut up or down to tune it to your SWR meter. Problem is if you cut the wire to tune it to the JK then want to move it to another vehicle you might not be able to tune it. My biggest issue with the kit however was the microphone mount. Mine came complete with corrosion under the powder coating which showed up as blisters under the paint... Not what I was expecting from Rightchannelradios or for the price I paid. I'm going to have to sand blast the powder coating off, clean up the corrosion, and then have it powder coated again. Added work and added cost. So while the radio and external speaker were fine the rest fell way short.
Kudos to Right Channel Radio. I contacted customer service shortly after ordering the kit and received a prompt response. I also received regular updates from Right Channel Radio on the status of my order. The customer service was great.
I ordered the Mopar JK Jeep CB radio kit instead of shopping for individual components, just because it was convenient. The kit was delivered on time and the install was easy taking about 90 minutes.
The Cobra 75 looks great mounted in the cab and there was more than enough cable between the radio (mounted behind the glove box) and the antenna (on the spare tire mount).
There have been some comments about the quality of the Cobra 75's internal speaker. With the top on my JK I have no problem hearing radio communications. If you drive with the top off you will probably need the external speaker.
My radio has not been tuned and the range is between 1 and 2.5 miles using the components included with the kit. I am sure the performance of the Cobra 75 could be improved with tuning and a better antenna but the radio serves my needs as is.
Overall the kit offered everything I needed to install and use the Cobra 75. I would recommend Right Channel Radio to anyone who is shopping the a CB radio for their Jeep.
Easy install and very nice kit. Worked perfect without tuning. The external speaker is loud and clear with the Jeep logo on it. Highly recommend this kit.
