Ranger radios sometimes have a small scratch or ding that the factory covers with black touch up.  We cannot effect this and do not guarantee your radio to be cosmetically perfect.  Bells CB will make no marks or scratches on your radio ourselves.  Ranger might though and I cannot control it.

Mic wiring diagram

 

 

The item most overlooked when ordering a custom radio is the microphone.  Your new radio will NOT sound great with a stock mic on it even if you have it tuned.  If your CB is more than a tool for work, you NEED to upgrade your microphone. 
My personal favorites are the
Astatic 636L and RD104E.
