    Anyway to do this?

    Hey guys -

    I drive a 99 Grand Cherokee. I'm plaqued with a 1.5 din. I want to keep my kenwood(1din) headunit but iw ant to add a screen. How hard is it to convert to 2 din? Or to get a 7inch screen in the dash or somehwere that looks semi stock.

    dash - http://wjjeeps.com/interior/int_99limited9.jpg

    overall - http://wjjeeps.com/interior/int_99limited2.jpg

    Thanks,
    Dan

    what about the screen where the HU is now and mod the wood piece. Could you put the hu in the center console facing up? My buddy just bought the same jeep. He put one of the xm radios in that one ashtray/storage spot fits perfect(with slight moding) and ya can hid it. Good luck

    WOuld help if you could put some measurements on the dash. I say take out the head unit and wooden insert and make a new panel to fit with the screen in and some buttons etc on the sides if the height is ok.

    Well i knew you would say that and i was thinking NO, then i thought MAYBE just to make you laugh Cris and then couldn't be arsed but then when you posted i thought what the hell so here is....

    another quick Andy classic.

    Edit: little boxes are buttons just in case anyone wondered amd if you could get some wood (or fake wood) to look similar to the rest of your dash around the buttons it would look even better.

    well i would want the headunit and lcd to be in teh same location, just easier when i wanna tune one or the other.

    behind the faux wood, is the housing for the whole thing with vents, so i really dont think i could cut into that, or would i want to.

    Is their any 1/2 din screeens??

    Scouse Monkey got a link to that?? Or what is it? Looks like a RB1 radio modded to play dvds, but even then that thing mite be a bit out of my price range.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    nevermind i just found it on www.wjjeeps.com 1000 dollars not including the RB1 bti to expensive.

    I'm better off finding a cheap pioneer tv headunit with cd and add a carputer.

    Well Andy, now you did a pretty nice drawing. Don't let it get to your head though...Now why did you make mine such a crappy one again...?

    i wasnt suggesting you buy it - duh! it was to show you the standard sat nav for ideas for your car pc.

    It they can put that there then you shoudl be able to fi a 7" screen there no probs. Depth is no more than 40mm normally.

    I missed the bit about you wanting to kep the head unit. I woud see if you could move the head unit down to where the ashtray is. Screen is besy hight up i say. Or to be honest i would ditch the HU as you have XM radio over there and go headless.
