What to Bring
CB Radio- Connected and ready to use, you will need this during the drive. Not everyone may be familiar with the CB Radio setups. It involves the radio itself usually hard wired to a cigarette lighter plug for power and a magnetic mount antenna. The hand-held CB radios don’t work very well for our purposes unfortunately. Here is a breakdown of what you’ll need:
CB Radios on Amazon – The Uniden Pro505XL will work if you are trying to get the least expensive one.
Cigarette Lighter Power Adapter Plug
CB Magnetic Mount Antenna – We like the Lil-Wil or the K40 both work excellent!
Tools to remove your wheels and jack your car up, if you have special lugs remember the key.
Bottle of Water- In case of an emergency
EZ Pass- we will need this when going through plazas, if you don’t bring it, speak to Mike at the beginning of the event.
Anything you need for your car to run properly (octane boost if you are tuned, etc etc)
Windshield Wiper Fluid, Extra Gallon (You will go through at least 1 gallon on the trip)
AZP Installs has also agreed to give a discount to help get your car prepped for this epic journey. Suggestions they have are 30/60/90/120k Service (Oil Change, Trans/Diffy Fluid Change, Coolant Change/Check, Brake Fluid Flushes, etc). Make sure to mention you are attending The 48hrs of Tristate when contacting them about pre-trip service!
