hello felll Jeep owner.
I have a 99 Grand Cherokee, and i have been planning a carputer for a while.
Their jsut isn't enough room to place a molded 7inch screeen or a computer inside the dash.
What i plan to do is grab an in-dash lcd touchscreen like so
Now the stock headunit size is 1.5 din. So that will take up 1 din of it, the other 1/2 din i think im gonna put a DVD player right their so i dont have to reach anywhere to put one in.
Now i will have the computer under the rear seat, in one of the little cases(on ebay if you type in mini itx their is a nice white or black case) about 80 bucks. In that i will have a 1ghz c3, 512, 60gig and so.
Under the rear seat their is alot of room, if you go to www.wjjeeps.com then audio upgrade and look for the amp install. If you cut the stupid sheet metal that serves no purpose, their is ample room.
It will go under their, and i will run a usb hub up to the front, and usb and power for hte dvd and screen.
For input i was thinkin a IR reciever something simple.
Power i will be doinga M1-ATX from this site.
Alot of people have done some with the Grand Cherokee, do a search here, you will see, another guy is doing one with teh new mac, and will be molding a screen in.
