I agree, that is what I'm thinking also. Next I need to find out how to black out the side vents and grill.

No, the Sat TV I've had on 4 different vehicles and it has been painted 3 times to match. It is an older model that they no longer make parts for but it still works fine. There is no rack, KVH makes a direct 4 leg mount which works great.

You're right, I'm thinking of getting rid of most of the chrome in the front of the truck. Of course once I start, I'm afraid I will not be able to stop until everything is blackened out.
