I built some custom sub boxes that contour to the back of the rear seats and extend over the wheel wells for greatest possible volume. They sound sweet, and they dont move around at all because of the design.
then after I had some sound i decided I needed some video....
I started by moving the stock cigarette lighter
then the radio and heater control
after that in bought a touch screen and separated the circuit boards from it and mounted them on plexi. it was then installed behind where the stock radio would go.
and finally I put a big a$$ 15inch touch screen in
then I cleaned it up dressed the wires and made it look nice with a new bezel. unfortunately I do not have any finished pictures. the touch screen ran off a laptop that was mounted along side the passenger seat and it would control music, video, and GPS.
Went from almost no interior, to having an interior lol. It had no headliner, no upper trim, no stereo, no speakers....
Everything light gray went black, everything dark gray stayed. It's not quite finished. We haven't done the lower trim molding yet. Oh and we need to degrease the carpet bleh.
We used duplicolor soft vinyl spray paint and krylon for plastics.
Headliner (have since installed the plastic piece to cover the hole between the visors.)
Ripped seats and no door panel
covered seats and redone door panel.
beat to heck hatch panel full of random screws, with no speakers
painted hatch panel with speakers!

I mounted the heater controls under the glove box...you can just barely see the corner of it in the last picture. I used two L brackets and screwed it into the steal under the dash.
The monitor was a fully functioning computer, it was connected to a laptop mounted on the side of the passenger seat. It played dvds, music (through windows media player), ran a copy of microsofts streets and trips with GPS, and also surfed the internet.
I am currently attempting to swap the full interior (including the dash, center console, headliner, seats and carpet) of a 99 cherokee into my 92. Has anyone tried this before? if so any advice?

no experience there personally, but i've "heard" someone has attempted to do it, and was a royal PITA, due to the fact just about every single thing is different, from the hvac ducting, to all the wirning harnesses, to the wires for the contollers, heat/ac on yours is controlled thorough a cable, where as the newer ones is electronic valve, your speedometer is cable, newer one is speed density( i believe) that and the fact that you can't just swap the dash plastics, cuz none of the stuff bolts up to one another, and on top of all that, the newer dashes stick OUT more, leaving you just a TAD less comfort room. Then you're left with all the wiring to rework for wipers, ecm, pcm, and windows, and mirrors.
I could be wrong, but that's what i've heard.
good work on the screen though. are you gonna make a custom cover to go over everything?? and if that's the case, then you don't really need the radio then, right??
looking for 33x12.5x18 tires.
