    I went to a stereo shop, provided them with coax and wire, which they professionally ran into the cab and under the passenger seat via factory ducts and harness wiring. Best $50 I ever spent.

    I had a 1993 Ranger 4x4 v6 extra cab. great little truck.

    I bought a JC Whitney shelf that above the winshield

    I ran a TS-50 and IC706Mkiig. the truck was fine on VHF/UHF, but was an HF RFI monster

    I got some braid and bonded the bed, tailpipe to the frame, and it was good to go.

    the shelf looked like this

    WS9K. Thanks for your response. I’ve had several Rangers over the years and liked them all. Your installation looks great but perhaps a little more than I need for the FT-7900. Thank you for commenting. KD6BWX. 73.
