Get a UHF for sure....I've got an AM CB in my car and it's good but UHF is the way to go these days.

GME make some really decent stuff.

definetly go for a uhf.

Definitely UHF (that's what we use on FM cruises :D )
I have a UH-013. Very good unit. It's a UHF with built-in scanner, and has a remote-mount face.

UHF radios are available through Fordmods (though the shop's not up yet...). Once you've decided which unit you want, it would be worth it to PM Waggin and ask if you could possibly order one through him, while the shop's not up.

There nice and expensive, and two years ago we got ourselves a uniden uh-011. Tis a bit larger than most on the market as it is a bit old, but its not too bad.

Get an Icom IC-400Pro UHF. They're really good quality and retail for approx $450ea.

the icom is a good unit, but unless you want to transmit on private channels (and have the relavent licences/authorisations to transmit on those frequencies) it's not worth it...... i looked at getting am ICOM, but i'm gonna be getting the uniden instead
