Finally

Ok...Ive finaly found someone who has the same stereo as me. Do you have any pictures of the spliced wire and how you grounded the monitor? I have a flipdown monitor from ebay coming in and now have hope for a working setup since I have the same player.

In Michigan it is illegal to watch a movie and drive at the same time. There are bypass switches to allow video to play while driving. I would recommend keeping your attention on the road. I have an Alpine HU w203 where the touchscreen monitor is built in. It is definately convenient to start up a movie while waiting in the car for the wife to complete errands. Its also nice for the passengers to watch movies on long trips.

Ya the system is for my daughter and family when we go cross country. We switch off who drives and relax by watching a movie when we switch turns.

Thanks for this writeup! I got a Pyle 7" LCD monitor off amazon.com for $65 with free shipping. Installed it last night in about 2 hours (had to phone-a-friend to figure out splicing into the power) and it works great. Now the kids won't be whining all the way to the off-road park.

Thanks, again!

reception is good, even in garage. In motion it's okay... not great.



closeup of antenna I mounted to the inside top of the windshield:



came with wireless remote but had to setup IR receive where it could be seen:

I've already done this in my old Jeep, and in case anyone wants to see how I did it Used 2007 Jeep Wrangler X For Sale | Georgetown DE

Click the right picture (steering wheel). The yellow plug is what I installed it on.


It works well, I'm going to do it in the Rubicon. But I like the idea of having it installed up top... I installed mine on the dash. I put a small screw in the dash so I just spun the TV in circles to get it to connect. Worked well. Easy to remove.

I like the idea of doing this but I'm not going out in that cold weather =)

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.
