Cobra 29 CB Radio Installation Write-Up
2007-10 Jeep JK Wrangler


Over the years, I have installed and tested out a few different CB Radios of different makes and models and while they all did the job, they all lack options that I wanted and their performance was always just okay at best. In fact, some were difficult to hear, a couple were temperamental and others simply died after a short amount of use. Needless to say, when it came time to look for a new CB Radio for our Orange Jeep JK Wrangler, I decided to do some research and if necessary, spend a bit more money to get a better product. And, what I finally ended up getting was a Cobra 29, or more specifically, the LTD BT version of it.

In addition to coming complete with a PA and having adjustments for RF Gain, Delta Tune and Dynamic, the Cobra 29 LTD BT also features a built in SWR meter and Bluetooth system which allows you to sync it up your smart phone. As far as performance goes, this is definitely the single best CB radio that I’ve ever owned. It sounds great, it broadcasts to everyone else amazingly well and so far, I haven’t had any problems with it.

Because of it’s size, there really isn’t a whole lot of places that you can install a Cobra 29 in a 2007-10 Jeep JK Wrangler especially if you don’t have a sport cage installed. This write-up will show you how I installed mine on top of the dash over the center console.

    Great write up. I plan on getting this cb this week. Would you be able to connect it to the ome speakers? Sorry, not too knowledgable on this sort of thing. Thanks!

    Great post! Was curious if you think this would fit in the same location as the one you installed in the Midland write-up: http://project-jk.com/jeep-jk-write-ups/affordable-jeep-jk-wrangler-cb-radio-solutionmidland-model-1001z? Thanks.

    Great info thanks, but I still can’t figure out the best way to wire up the power. Fuse box is under the hood but the input power on some radios like the Cobra is 13.5V. It’s also nice to have it working with the ignition off. Isn’t there a spare slot on the fuse box to wire it to?

    @Dan buy an inline fuse from your local auto parts store and wire it directly to the battery. Just be sure to turn it off when your done with it.

    @OP great job with this topic! I used it to figure out how to get the top of the instrument cluster off, and continued to read on and see how my I stall measured up.

    Just finished the install. Well temporary install… I have to make sure I can deal with the brightness of the lights before drilling. The information and pictures are great. I was able to route the power using a hanger without removing the stereo and I hid the antenna cable under the windshield heat ducts. Maybe not perfect, but I may move the coaxial if I finish the install.

    Thanks!
