STEREO!!!! Get a good headunit and set of 6x9 speakers or something and mount her up.. Easy to wire.. google will help if you dont know.. and if you can get an antenna out of a car.. we did it on the ranch king but the rolls ripped it all off Sad yes you can hear it over the motor.. clearly if the speakers are in a good spot.. Use a toggle switch to cut power to the radio if it doesnt have a power switch built in..

Yeah, stereo. I have some 4" pioneer weatherproof speakers I am going to use, along with a low-wattage amp that hooks into my GPS/MP3/PDA device. CB if you feel real redneck Smile

Another modification i forgot to mention is the "Lovers Knob". I stole it off one of my old farmalls. It is called a "Lovers Knob" because it was made for one handed turning when the other hand was being occupied by your "lover". It also makes it easier to turn at a higher speed.
