    I've yet to see that. Talked to a number of companies and asked about adding things to trucks like TV's and such. They've said that they would install them. Been in some trucks as well and have yet to see a TV in one. Mostly been in Freightliners and Volvos though.

    That looks nice. I heard the Kenworth's are nice. I like that much better than what I've seen in these other trucks. They have nice storage areas that are like columns on both sides behind the seats. Only thing is they take up a lot of space. So I don't know. Where I'm going I think I'm going to have to rough it a while with a volvo or a freightliner lol.

    I use one of those mini load locks and set the tv on it with the bar between the tv and the base. I then put some Velcro on the top edge of the tv and bottom of the top bunk shelf. Jam it in there nice and tight. Been in this truck since July and hang come loose yet.

    With a 30" lol bout the max size you can run in it. Works really well.

    When I was running the Volvo and crapcadia I had a 24" dynex cheap Best Buy special that rode well for 4 years. I took a piece of chain and ran it through the mounting bar like this and hung it over or through the sleeper vent handle. Never had any problems out of it other than periodically re-tightening the mounting screws.

    I've had the same Vizio for 3 years already. It's a 32 in led and it hasn't given me any problems. I play xbox on it and watch movies (hdmi x laptop).

    Both Volvos I've driven (08 and 14) came with same closet so it made the tv easy to hang. Pics posted.

    With this setup you'll find yaself spending 12-14 hours off duty, instead of just 10. You've been warned...

    Depends on your model of truck and if it included a mount or if your installing one yourself. I managed to squeeze a 32" onto the factory mount in a Volvo 740 midroof. Wish I would have gone for a 27" sometimes. Doubt you'd get a 32" in a T680 tho. If you did, it would probably be a VERY tight squeeze.

    I put a 32” LED Sharp Roku TV and I ran all off road and it took a beaten. I just used a bungled cord to keep it from vibrating. I like the Roku / Android TV’s as you’ve got all the streaming sites built into it if you have wifi or a hotspot.
