roll Hump Related

Im thinking about installing a CB radio mount on the center hump of my 97CV. I was wondering if this action will result in costly repairs. What is under the hump and how deep do you think I can screw the hump before I blow it?


You just can't see the dark because you're blinded by the light.Those that see the darkness and know its true shape shall walk without fear.

Re: Hump Related

Your transmission and driveshaft are underneath there. You should have at least 4-6" of clearance, so if you use 1" screws, you'll be fine.

To give you an idea, I'm about to install a B&M shifter into my 1989 CV and the shifter bolts through the hump using 1.5" bolts with nuts on the back.

In other words, you should have plenty of clearance. Just to be sure, though, climb under there and take a quick look, to be sure you won't catch any wiring harnesses or anything during the drilling.

Re: Hump Related

The hump in a '94 will survive any one inch bolt. Mine has alot of them in it. I installed a 2 way police radio, a CB, and control switches for my strobes, siren and phone along with a center console with arm rest and storage. I use the thing daily and have no problems. Mine have 1.5 inch lag bolts in it to support the thing. In a nut shell, a CB radio is absolutely NOOOO problem.Also, they shouldn't be any wiring to interfere with it at all.

I'm not familiar with the 4R70W. I know it (as well as the later AOD types) had lots of sensors (compared to the AOD in my 1989), just not sure where they are located.
