    Thanks Data Andriod! How is the picture quality? I don't suppose you have anything to compare it too? Like Cris said, Pictures would be great, I would love to see the thing on and running.

    Thanks Data! Looks pretty good for a 200 dollar screen. Looks like there was a lot of light, a bit washed out, but not bad. Thanks for posting this!

    because the F150 doesn't have a trunk

    I just put the system there to test it for awhile.
    later I will move it into the center console (I have a rather large one).

    nope, I'm watching the thread about the motorized screen housing very closely and hope it might come true soon, this way I could get a cd player or something and use it as an aux-in
    otherwise I will replace the factory radio unit and put the screen in there and go the amp route.
