  • 1984 Landcruiser MP3 Car Computer

    I'm setting up my Landcruiser for some long roadtrips. I want tunes.
    • Headunit - Jensen JHD1620B AM/FM/Weatherband radio
    • Amp - JL XD700/5
    • Aura Whisper wideband drivers (front doors)
    • Dayton RS150 6" woofers (front doors)
    • Dayton Neo 10" subwoofer (driver's rear quarter panel)

    I have around 200GB of MP3s which I plan to load up on an HP 12" laptop. The laptop will run centrafuse or something TBD. For user input, I'll use a 7" touchscreen. Right now I am looking at the Lilliput 669GL-70NP/C/T-HB-RV but I have no idea how I'll mount it to the dash. It needs to be removable so I can stash it when parked.

    Perhaps something like this? I need ideas.

    Here's a pic of the dash. I have a 40/60 split bench so I can't put a tall console there without swapping out the passenger seat.

      MMmmm 60 series
      Might be easiest just to stick it on top of the dash next to your gauges....

        That's my thought right now - but I'm worried about how tall it will be once mounted. I don't want it to obstruct my view too much. I saw one where somebody mounted it in his 80 using the front of the dash and some drywall spread anchors to hold it in place.

        I am not looking forward to taking the dash apart though. Maybe it won't be too bad.

            Yeah something like that could also work..
            Do you have a spare dash in case it gets messed up..?
            Toyota dashes usually come apart pretty easy..
            A gregory's manual helps
            You might also find that there is some space under the top somewhere so you could sink the screen into the top a bit..?
