    Without a functioning picture, the only thing I can think of that you might find on the roof would be a satellite radio antenna. That or some bird crap.

    I had no idea that was Satellite radio antenna. If I decided to add Sat/radio, the antenna would already be in place?

    You would need to add the Toyota xm tuner and fit kit. About $300 total.
