For whatever reason, I've noticed that no real four-wheel drive enthusiast would be caught dead without a CB radio in his vehicle, but it seems that most baja bug owners don't have one. Why is this? Am I missing something? They REALLY come in handy on the trail.

The big thing now is the small FM radios/walki talkies. I also have a CB. The problem with the CB is the antena. Most rock crawlers do not like them or have the antena tied off or removed. As the thing is a whip as the jeep bumps and rolls over the rocks. It will smack you and it will leave a mark. Guy driving around a bunch of us on the trail had his CB whip antena hit a jeep next to his so hard that it broke the windshield and put a dent in the window frame.

I don't know about these days but back about 15 years ago when I was living in southern California we all had cb's in our bajas.
I certianly plan on installing one in the one I'm building now along with a 2 meter radio.
Communications are very important when off roading and most of the places we go cell phones don't work.

but who listens to the CB now a days??? You might have it but if no one is on the other end...ou might s well have a can with a string hanging out of it.

In the 80's we all had CB's in our Muscle Cars. For what ever reson I love the look of the wire wip antena on the trunk of a muscle car aka Duke's style.

Up here in Washington there's still a fair sized cb community as well as the truckers. The truckers are all over the country.

I've found when two ore more guys are on the trail together they are very practical, handy, and even fun:

"When you come to he fork in the road, go left"

"Watch out, there are motorcycles coming"

"Something just fell off of your engine, you might want to check that"

"Pull over. I need to take a leak"

"There's a blonde babe in that Jeep to your left with her shirt off"



...etc...

i agree i always like to screw with people that i dont know or if i do know them then i will say something stupid like above. lol
i think that are really good to have and if you have them they can save your ass when you are in the middle of no were and you happened to get stuck and your budy doesnt see you and your like "dude i just got stuck can you pull me out."
they are good to have and fun to play with.

My problem with CBs is that there are so many people who are constantly yapping on them they're not very usefull for me or my group when we're out. The other problem is that I can't hear them over my engine.

I do plan on getting FCRs with throat mics like this
