This is the best I can do for now, I still haven't figured out why thaye put that tail on it. Under the tape tail is just the antenna wire. I would like to put it just forward od the 3rd brake lamp on top of the cab and run the wire through there, not sure if it really needs that tail. Seems like you could just cut off that piece leaving just the cable.

It doesn't really need the tail. But the antenna will work best with a 6 inch metal groundplane. This makes it easy for consumers to get the best reception.

It looks to be a cross between the H2A antenna and the Roady antenna.

I think the angle mounts would be great for the Streamer, looking forward to your pics!

It is plenty bright and will overpower the radio lamps, there is a feature to adjust contrast and brightness and even has an "autodim" feature. Text is very crisp, photo doesn't do justice.

Guess I am kinda lame here cuz I can't figure out how to take the auto flash off, Its a Cannon Power Shot A20, flashes when it needs to. The Display is more of a yellow/green rather than just a green.

Oh, it has AutoDim. Sweet!! That's another feature that I thought the SIRPNP2 only had. Can you confirm if there is different text?

Thanks Matt for the additional picture. I wish it didn't have the tail on the antenna, but I can see why they did it. You probably could cut it off, just be careful not to cut the wire.

I was not aware of an auto dim feature or that it had multiple fonts to choose from. This this is some kind of SWEET! I usually live for the weekends, but I hope this one goes by FAST, because mine is schedule for delivery on Tuesday.

Ben's going to have another wet dream tonight.

No problem, glad to do it, I am surprised at all the interest though.

I will get it installed by Sat and will most likely leave the tail, will post some more pics then too.

Sleep tight Ben...
