The funny thing is my father said the same thing and almost bought the exact same truck and color a week later.......I had to do ALOT of convincing for him to change his mind on not getting the same color he went with white thankfully

How is the reception with the antenna in the bed like that? Ive heard that the bed is a terrible place to get reception because there isnt much metal back there. I would for sure go that route if it worked well though.
