2008 Jeep Wrangler X

 

This JK-X is about to become radioactive

 

 

The radio is a Yaesu FT 8900 split mount

The rest of the radio is mounted in the console.

I bent a piece of alumnium into an L shape and bolted it to the

U bracket above the rear view mirror and then screwed the control head

mounting bracket to it.

Extra heatsink was also installed to disapate heat.
