What radio set ups are you all running? I only have a CB right now and want to move to a Rugged Radio type set up. Not sure which one is the right setup for a jk or if there is something better. Let me know your thoughts. Pros and cons.

I have been using the BTECH Mini UV 25x2 25 watt radio for the jeep for about a year now, very pleased with it. My club uses the GMRS channels on this radio, same as the Rugged Radio Channels. This radio is a perfect size to mount just about anywhere. I had it mounted on my roll cage on the JK but moved it to a lower position on my center console on the LJ.

I also have a handeld Rugged Radio RH5R that works nicely. I use it in the tow rig and also keep it in the jeep to lend out to someone that may need it or to give to a spotter.

What antenna did you go with?
