  • 2001 Dakota

    Well i figured i would go through some of my photos and stick some of them up here, they are all from when i was installing the system so they are a little old. I hope to have a few up here from now soon.

    I built the system to mimick the center seat of my truck. Other than the 8" screen mounted to the dash, you can't tell anything is diffrent about the seat, it even is still cushined (not as soft as stock, haha).

    The system is running a P4 1.6Ghz CPU on a Commel LV-670 motherboard. 512megs of 2700 RAM with heatsink. Linksys WMP54G PCI Wireless-G Adapter with external antenna on top of truck. Built in 5.1 sound and Intel Graphics on MB. 60G Hard Drive mounted in a HD Cooler were are flows by constantly. I took a 3 bay case and cut out the metal cage to use the two bays. In the center console i have a USB Hub with a Trigger Mouse stored inside for random use. GPS is Microsoft USB reciver running Microsoft Streets and Trips. I am running XP Pro useing old skool MediaCar as the front-end, best one for how i use it so far.


    Let me see your comments and questions.

    P.S. Sorry for the Type-O's.

















    Running Winamp befor I found a front-end I liked.





    Have to add these photos in so you see what this system is installed in.....

                          I am thinking on it.....i want to put a cd player back in and run the system through it......I like how Matrix did his install down low....the bottom line is i don't want to destroy the dash.

                            That was my biggest item to get past. I have all the confidence I can pull it off, but I would still have to mount the radio somewhere. I prefer to keep the radio because I do not want to always boot a PC for small trips. The other big reason for mounting it low is to elimate a lot of screen glare, that was my biggest issue with my Toyota install.

                              I drove around testing the it down low and didnt like the idea of looking low to see the monitor, but its less work. I also use the receiver for all crossovers, and minor eqing and time alignment. So I'll have to relocate the receiver to the glovebox, or something. You guys are so lucky to have the space down low though. I have a manual so its not that easy. Just remember you can get a replacement dash panel for probably 20$-$30s. Just good to see another Dak/Rango puting.
