    2001 Jeep Cherokee

    Jeep MP3
    2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport

    Xenarc 700TSV
    Intel Celeron D 330 (2.66GHz)
    256MB PC2700 Ram
    NVidia GeForce FX 5200 Plus
    80GB Seagate Barracuda SATA HDD
    Panasonic Slimline CD/DVD drive CW-8123-B
    Warps Slimline CD Rom enclosure
    Gyration Ultra GT Wireless Keyboard/Mouse

    Custom dash bracket for Xenarc
    Custom Plexi / Aluminum computer case

    Frodoplayer
    Windows XP Media Center Edition
    NaviVoice

    Still on the chopping block:
    Car Starter - Computer turn on relay [DONE]
    Dual Battery Tank Circuit [DONE]
    Microphone & Mount for NaviVoice
    Xenarc is too bright at night - need to install a Gamma control
    Wireless LAN

    The website is a little sparse on info right now, but has plenty of images.

    Here are a few pics to wet your appetite:

    Display mounted just below the stereo.
    The shifter just clears it.
    The mount permits me to swing the display upwards so I can see the A/C controls.



    The computer all ready for my car.
    As I stated earlier, I created this case completely from scratch. Used clear 1/8" plexi for the panels, L-shaped aluminum and steel for the edges, and about 200 pop rivets to hold the whole thing together!



    Dash mount parts
    The one on the left surrounds the headunit and mounts using stock bolts.
    The one on the right is a frame to attach the Xenarc to. It uses the stock 1/4" machine screw mount at the bottom of the display.



    Here's my car in my toasty warm garage a few days before X-mas. I think it got down to -5f that night!



    Edit: I have added....

    dual battery tank circut: RatShack #23-289 SLA 5Ah batt & Relay wired in parallel set to disconnect when key is in Start position

    Remote starter AUX key fob relay: Wired a relay (RatShack #275-241) to trigger Mobo power switch contacts when (-) AUX output from Valet 562t car starter is triggered.

    Uhh... no. absolutely not.
    Just kidding - if your questions pertain to any of the topics in the rest of the forum, feel free to post them there. Any messages here should be directly related to my setup.

    I was waiting for that kind of response!
    I realized that it was time to dump a wad of cash at the sucker and be done with it! As for the dash - as soon as I can find a spare panel (maintaining resale value...). I went up to Johns Auto the other day and the Jeeps were thoroughly pilfered. Some jerk ran into me on the way home, too!
    But, I rigged up a neto mount to hold me for a while.

    MN meet this spring - I want to see your dash freestyler!
    Edit: ooooooo.... I just saw your site. I must see the night vision camera! let's get that dark, dreary parking ramp again!

    Hope that no one was hurt, doesn't seem so. Accidents are a *****. Any way, details...

    P.s. My dad also has a jeep, though he has the older dash. Those just scream to have a touchscreen put in 'em.

    The fender bender is detailed in another post - no damage, other than some scratched paint on a trailer hitch.
    Actually, the older dash has an A/C vent which is perfect for a Matrix Orbital 40x4 character LCD!!! (hence, Freestyler's comments above)
    On the plus side, the older dash is made of extremely thin plastic, so it would be easy to mod.
