Re: CB radio
Drop down to the CB-HAM radio forum and you will see lots and lots of info on the subject. Easiest-fastest (perhaps best), way? Find the member named "Vegas Nick" and do what he tells you to. There are lots of threads with install photos on mounting the various radios and antennas. That forum seems to have lots of very good user-reviewed and hands-on info to help with buying and installation. Oh, some of the forum members are also going to tell you to look into going the full bore HAM direction and that is interesting reading as well.
