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.



In the unlikely event you need Warranty service;
We ask that you please send directly to Ranger.

We highly recommend one of these microphones wired 6-Pin because the stock mic sounds like a dixie cup.
Astatic 636L and RD104E.

Optional Accessories
 Tune-up and frequency conversion. (Tune-up, Alignment and expanded frequency coverage. $49
 Turner RK-56 Noise Canceling microphone.
(wired for this radio with a 6 pin plug)
 Astatic 636L Noise Canceling microphone.
(wired for this radio with a 6 pin plug)
With Up/Down
Buttons added?

 Astatic RD104-E Amplified microphone.
(wired with a 6 pin plug and a battery installed). Choose if you want Channel Up and Down buttons installed in the microphone.
Echo Type
 Install an Echo Board.  (SIDE)
(wired internal to the radio with dual controls on the left side to control speed and echo effects)
Install High Pass Filter Switch
(wired to tone control location inside the radio to cut the high frequency (hiss) sound to a lower tone. Much easier to listen to, I wouldn't own a Ranger without this mod.)  
Switch Location
Install an EXTERNAL amplifier keying port. or PTT OUT.  We use an RCA jack in the back for a TX output PORT to your external device. Every time you key it provides a connection between the +/- of the RCA connector.  
      1) Output RCA completely isolated  from the radio. +/- of RCA connects to a relay that isolates it from the radios circuits.
      2) Optional BYPASS switch in case your external device does not have one. (turns port off (stays open))   
      3) Works all the time in high or low power modes..   
      4) Heavy duty relay can handle any keying circuit voltage, even the SB-220's - 120VDC circuit.
 Add a "Slider" option Modified the Clarifier for ability to control frequency on TX as well as RX, requires frequency realignment (This mod is available to some who want it, but I don't necessarily recommend it) $25
 Install a CP-1 Top Gun Audio Compressor. (on - all the time) This amplifies your lower level audio on transmit.
NOTE: It becomes difficult to use the Talkback even at low volume with this mod.

  Install a Record/Playback Module 120 seconds (wired inside the radio with  two pushbuttons on the side to record 120 seconds and to play it back) $77
 Install Talkback w/ a switch
(wired inside the radio so that when you talk you can hear yourself. If you chose an Echo or a Recorder mod, I highly suggest this as well)

 Install Talkback w/ no switch
(wired inside the radio so that when you talk you can hear yourself. If you chose an Echo or a Recorder mod, I highly suggest this as well)

Sound Byte link

 Install a Noise toy (wired inside the radio with a switch or pushbutton to trigger
 any 30 second sound byte you want)

Sound Byte link

 Install a Noise toy as a background theme music (wired inside the radio with a switch to play any background
 music at very low volume so you can talk over it.)
 Change factory power cord to a 10 Gauge Power Cord (14 foot) and modify the DC Jack for high amperage 2 Pin Quick connector.
