Check in the "show off your projects" forum for Ford F150's and see what they've used.
heres the deal, im going to be receiving an imac (dont know which revision, but its one of the tray loaders)
and it is going into my 1993 Dodge ram 150 fullsize pickup truck.
i currently have a pioneer head unit in there with audiobahn 6x9 speakers in the doors. i will be looking for a standalone amp and a subwoofer so i can ditch the head unit all together (never listen to the radio, it sucks) it doesnt have an aux in.
any suggestions for a touch screen? i need something fairly inexpensive but good enough. appearance isnt an issue for me, as long as it works.
thanks a lot folks.
but i have a dodge...
He must have misread, What he means is to try and get ideas off other similar trucks. Imo Id take a dodge over a ford anytime(actually Id never buy a ford!).
What you said. Look at what others have used in their Fords and get some ideas.Originally Posted by kevinlekiller
Or check out the FAQ Emporium and read up on display in the FAQ to the FAQ's.
its hard to find anything on my truck online. was a pretty obscure model.
from what ive seen, lilliput is probably the best bet for a screen?
im going to have to make everything somewhat temporary because im going to be selling the truck in a year or two and i want to be able to transfer everything over to the new car . so no custom moulding or anything.
If its a doge, then wouldn't it be a 1500 instead of a 150... I was confused with bugbyte as well... either way, f150, ram 1500. They're both similar.

actually, no it is 150. its a redesign of the 1970s power ram trucks
regardless, i think i know what ill be doing.
i think i found a screen.
is it any good? i cant figure out if its mac compatible.
If you're going to put a Mac carputer into your vehicle, why go with an old iMac? The mac mini's are perfect and start at aroudn $500. Additionally you can get a DC-DC connector for them seen here which are about $100. I dunno, I work on Macs for a living and I know those old iMac tray loaders have a very strangely shaped board. Plus the logic boad plugs directly into a power/analog/video board which connects to the CRT so you'll need to be pretty savvy with electronics to pull it off.
