    I got one made by Steel Horse, goes across the front. Bought from 4WPW for less than $50. It bolts in, and the visors attach to the console. It's a little odd cuz it cuts off the very top of the windshield, and a little off the rear mirror. I'm living with it for a while to see if I get used to it, and if having the storage space up there matters so much. Jury's still out on it.

    I kind of felt the same way when I rode in my buddy's bronco about not having the top of the windsheild anymore. Let me know what you think about storage and maybe what you store up there looks like a good place for a CB and the like.

    That was my original thinking - put the CB up there. But for me I think it's too high to see it easily when I'm driving (I'm 5'5") and I can't bolt it underneath because the visors or rear view mirror are in the way. I also have a Tuffy Security Console between the seat, and I find that I just throw everything in there. I have the deluxe version, and I have my ham radio in the radio spot. So, so far i'm not storing anything up there in the overhead. The Tuffy Security Console was a best buy for me - I would definitely recommend it. I'm going to put my kill switch inside the Tuffy too.
