In our opinion, this is simply the best bang-for-the-buck two-way radio communication system that you can install into your Wrangler JL. This package starts with the Midland MXT275 GMRS Radio - with all of the controls right on the microphone. The MXT275 incorporates a powerful 15-watt transmitter. Unlike CB which is AM and at 27 MHz (introduced in the 1950's), this is a modern, UHF FM transceiver. Communication distance and clarity of signal is just hands-down better than CB. Whereas many conditions will result in a CB communication range of 2-3 miles, the GMRS radios can handle 20-30 MILE communication! It's a BIG difference! Anyway, back to this kit...
In addition to the GMRS radio, we've included our JL-specific, all stainless GMRS (NMO-standard) antenna mounting bracket, Midland's best, low-profile coax with a removable end for easier routing, and Midland's best 6db, 32" GMRS antenna. Finally, we have included our extremely popular Mic Mount. (In contrast to the picture, the Mic Mount comes fully powdercoated and the mic hanger is actually provided in the MXT275 box!)
If you really want to go crazy, you can upgrade this kit to the 40-watt MXT400 for $100 more. The MXT400 is Midland's most powerful GMRS MICROMOBILE radio! In contrast to the MXT275 where all controls are on he handset, the MXT400 may take a little ingenuity to find a good, reachable mounting location.
To make your GMRS more enjoyable and practical, please consider to add a pair of Midland's GXT1000 hand-held radios. These radios have a full 5-watts of transmit power and are a great compliment to this GMRS mobile unit.
Please share your GMRS experience with your fellow Jeep and off-road friends. If you've ever used a CB, you're just going to be blown-away with the HUGE difference this system provides! At Cool Tech, we're on a mission to help the off-road community to transition from CB to GMRS. It's time. Even Jeep is on-board having announced that the 2021 Jeep Jamboree will, for the first time in history, be using GMRS and not CB. If you have friends or are part of a club and you get 3 or more people interested to get a GMRS system, please email us at email@example.com to see if we can put together a package for you!
