Description Compatibility Part Numbers

Rugged Radios GMRS Radio Kits include your choice of a waterproof 25 watt GMRS radio or a high power 45 watt GMRS radio, a high end 696+ intercom, mounting brackets and hardware, audio filter, antennae, wiring harnesses, and your choice of helmet kit or headsets. Each kit is purpose built to fit your specific vehilce for a factory installed look that is also easy to install.

Why GMRS? The FCC acknowledged the need for affordable higher power radios for the general public with their general mobile radio service (GMRS) allowing for the legal use for radios up to 50 watts (compared to 2-5 watts for UHF/VHF). This is a game-changer for the industry because it finally allows for actual, real world communication over several miles.

GMRS License: GMRS licenses are cheap, easy to get, and valid for 10 years. Currently $35 with no test.

Rugged Radio GMRS Radio Options: Your radio sends and receives signals to other radios to communicate with other people and vehicles so the first decision you need to make is which of the two GMRS radios is right for you.

GMRS25 - Waterproof GMRS45 - High Power
For open cab vehicles expecting to ride in wet and muddy environments, this 25 watt radio is waterproof and provides plenty of transmitting power for group trips with a 10 mile range in ideal conditions.
50 watts is the legal limit for communicating on GMRS frequencies so this radio provides the most transmission power while staying just under the legal limit. This radio is ideal for riding in large, wide open areas.

Both radios are designed to be very easy to use with all 15 universal frequencies preloaded so it works just like a walkie-talkie. A hand mic with magnetic mount is included with each radio for direct use just like a CB radio and they can also be connected directly to an intercom system for headset and helmet communication.

Free Magnetic Radio and Intercom Cover! To help protect your investment, Filthy Motorsports will include a free magnetic radio and intercom cover with your kit ($59 value). While this cover is not 100% waterproof, it does a great job of protecting your equipment from dust and most rainy and muddy conditions.

Rugged Radios 696+ High Fidelity Bluetooth Intercom. This kit includes Rugged Radios' newest premium intercom, the 696 PLUS with an upgraded Bluetooth module for high-fedelity music and phone calls, improved volume and VOX (voice activated transmission) controls, and a 3.5mm audio output for in-car audio recording.

To communicate over the radio you need to push the provided PTT (push-to-talk) buttons just like you would on a walkie-talkie. For in car communication, however, the intercom features advanced voice activated microphones with easy to use sensitivity controls to fine tune the activation volume and tune out external sounds and noises.

We have used and tested many radio intercoms over the years, but the 696+ is by far our favorite to use and is now found in all Filthy Motorsports vehicles.

Rugged Radios Headset Options: The base kit includes a pair of Alpha Audio helmet kits that can be installed into your existing or new helmet(s). Pre-wired helmets are also available separately. We also offer behind-the-head headsets that work will with most open faced helmets or can be worn with a hat. The over-the-head headsets provide the best comfort, especially for extended use. Finally, for premium sound and comfort, consider upgrading to the Rugged Radios AlphaBass over-the-head headsets. All options feature noise cancelling mics with stay-put flex booms for superior sound clarity.
