    2004 Trailblazer RR-DFX2

    Check out my custom Chevy Trailblazer touchscreen that sits high on the dashboard like a screen ought to!

    I took these at night so they are hard to see clearly. I'll get some more up soon. I'd still like to try and get a copy of the Trailblazer round logo if you find time to take a picture of it or something.

    Vents are completely functional

    The vents are functional. I went to a junk yard and walked around for over an hour trying to find the smallest vents I could find. I ended up getting them out of a 1996 camaro. Actually, I had to get them from two different Camaros as there is a big one and small one on each car above the instrument cluster. I did not damage or alter anything on my Trailblazer to do this install. I cut a peice of plexiglass with 2 holes the size of the vents and mounted 2 peices of old flexible vacuum cleaner hose on it with bondo body filler. I then simply put a screw in the middle and mounted in the hole where the factory vents butted up against it. It was quick and simple to do. I left a small gap from the hose to the new vents to allow air flow to keep heat from building up from the 8.5" LCD touchscreen. The 8.5 screen is as big as will neatly fit into the recessed original vent housing hole. Putting a bigger screen is possible if you eliminate the vents altogether. I recommend not going any bigger because it will block your view. This one is about two inches above the top contour of the dash.

    I believe it was a 1996 or close to it. Check out this google search image.

    Very nice! Looks like a factory option... Only slicker!
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.
