Does anyone have any experience mounting a mobile rig in a Toyota Tundra.  If you have one of these trucks you already know there aren't many usable mounting points.  If you have "been there, done that" I would like to hear from you.

The above links show a pretty nice mounting job in a Tundra.  Its definetly not mine, since I drive trucks (Ford) not toys Smiley

Dwayne and Mark-

I am glad the links to my 706 install made it here.  I emailed you Dwayne with other info. as well.  I changed my web page to explain that I had to add a pocket in the double-DIN opening when I replaced the factory stereo headunit.  It happened to work out to my favor when it came time to install the 706.

I also have seen a CB mounted in the slide-out cup holder in the Tacoma and supposedly this works in the Tundra as well.  I would say that any of these menu driven rigs need to sit up as close to your normal driving line of site as possible to minimize the risk of an accident.

Also, a quick plug for other Tundra owners.  The website http://www.TundraSolutions.com is an absolute must see.

Well, I dont have a Tundra but I did get a new 4Runner and mounted the control head of a 706 on the center console with rubber standoffs for ballancing off one end and then using VERY sticky double sided tape.... when it comes time to remove the tape, use "RONSON" lighter fluid.... ONLY!  Ronson has characterists that will eat up the glue but will not damage the plastic it's mounted to.
