Nice job.

Yes, when going to one of the "new/wide aspect" TV's, one can trim up the head knocker!

I removed the TV cabinet and trimmed the top to accommodate the new LED TV then reinstalled it on our 1997 Sahara.

Nice!

Something very similar to this is definitely in my remodeling plans, but I'm not sure we'll keep the TV mounted up top. On the other hand, a killer custom sound bar with some storage cabinets could give a big boost to the Alpine unit in the dash! And a 55" freestanding TV on the dashboard when we're parked. Hmmm!

I put a 32" on the steering wheel when we park and put it on the bed travelling.

Thanks, that got me thinking I'm going to take the whole thing out w/55'' fold down flat screen and a 24'' camera screen over drivers side.

I tried a piece of foam I had left over from another project [used double sided tape to attach], 3" thick. Problem was it cut down on the space between the pillow and the cabinets even more, so now I use the "duck and roll" method. Have since removed the foam. I don't want to remove the cabinets, we use them for clothes. Still in search mode for a solution. I'll let you know if I come up with something viable. By the way, tell your hubby I can totally relate, makes for a really rude wake up call!

I removed my head banger, took out the recliner and lamp table behind the pax seat and put a flat screen LED TV in a cabinet with a televator. I used the wood from the lamp table to build a new corner cabinet. It's nice having the TV directly across from the couch and driver's seat.
