    Tahoe front console lcd housing?

    Anyone know anywhere that I can find an already made lcd housing for a Chevy Tahoe? I've seen one on Ebay before, but I can't find it anymore. It was a console replacement that had a 7" lcd in it. It was exactly what I needed, but I can't find it anymore.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    If you find anything, make sure to post it ! I am looking to install an LCD in a Tahoe too! Mine will go into the plastic console that currently holds the cigarette lighter and aux. lighter. I posted another topic with a photo. It would be Awesome if there is a Pre-Developed one !

    WakeBdr - What I am doing for my 03 Tahoe - is ordering the lower front console from the dealer. This is the one with the cigarette lighter and aux. power. They have one you can order that is flat plastic. This way, I can cut out the plastic for the LCD, and then create a build up that will position my screen exactly how I want it. I was quote "about $80 bucks" on the phone. That is far less than the $600 a custom shop quoted to change the one I have right now. Let me know what you end up doing. I'll post pics of mine when I am done.

    I am also interested in how this turns out, once my wife sees my install I know she'll want something in our 99 Yukon.

    Not off the shelf but here is what I did ...

    I installed a Lilliput in my '03 Sierra Denali-has the same console and the Yukon Denali here are some pictures:




    Also, this might be the prefab console your talking about:

    Looks like the seller is no longer registered on Ebay though

    A guy had one for sale over at gm-trucks.com:

    Hey Rgardjr, VERY NICE! I am assuming that is a custom job ? I looked at the console on ebay and contacted the seller. That actually won't fit mine. Mine looks like this : How to install LCD in 2003 Tahoe The piece snaps out, and I can buy one without any of the slots or aux. systems. That way I can cut it out and mount the LCD. I was HOPING someone had a prefab kit! Maybe the ebay seller will contact me... I'll keep everyone posted. BUT DAMN! I love how yours turned out !

    Sounds like the blank piece that you cut to fit would be a relatively easy way to go. My install was pretty basic. There was a thin plastic piece that I removed from the front of the console. I relocated the factory cd changer to glove box. Made a new front piece from 1/4" MDF and cut out a hole for the Lilliput. Glued the MDF onto console with contact cement and hot glued the Lilliput to the console. I just couldn't bring myself to open up the monitor and go the bondo/fiberglass route. It turned out pretty nice, but I think it would've looked nicer if I had filled in around the edge of the monitor to make it look like a single molded piece. Good luck with your install.

    My 2001 Suburban install

    I went to my local salvage yard and found a 2004 Tahoe and i bought both the bezel and the stereo carrier. I paid $25 for both of them. i used the bezel as is and i trimmed the carrier to fit exactly as the 2001 carrier did. I used it for my heating unit and stereo mounting. this was a perfect fit!! you will have to trim the bottom of the bezel in order to open your ashtray(if you even use it) this was a really fun project!

    Installed:
    AVH-P4100dvd pioneer 7" touchscreen that I purchased on ebay "brand new" for $429 and 2 headrest Power Ackoustic 9.5" monitors for $298.
    I have 1 12" Kicker Solobaric L5 running from a 1000 watt kicker amp. really nice system for the price.
