Alternative to Chrysler's Rear DVD system

When I bought my 2014 Grand Cherokee the rear DVD system was not available. I had it in both my previous Jeeps and my Kids really enjoyed it. So it was a disappointment when I could not get it for my 2014. After almost a year I finely found these on line for under $300 and installed them this past weekend. They can play two separate DVD's or the same DVD on both Players and both are touchscreens. they can play sound through wireless headphones, built in speakers or can play through the Jeeps radio via a FM transmitter.
I hardwired them to the wire harness under the passenger's seat that had a switched power source so they will turn off when the Jeep shuts down. Don't have to worry about them being left on when exiting the Jeep. They attach to the post of the headrest so they don't interfere with the active headrests.
I ran the wire between the headrest post and the seat leather, down the inside of the seat and out the bottom to the wire harness, pretty straight forward.
They work really well and keep the kids entertained, the color is not an exact match to the interior, but close enough not my preferred choice as I like every thing to look factory, but this will have to do for now.

Thanks kkreit, I picked these up from a site called AliExpress.com - Online Shopping for Electronics, Fashion, Home & Garden, Toys & Sports, Automobiles from China.. It's sort of like EBay, you find what you want check their feedback place the order, your money is held in a escrow account until you receive the goods and are happy. Once you are satisfied with the purchase aliepress releases the money to the vendor. Do a search for 9" headrest dvd players, there are hundred's of styles and choices on the site from all different sellers. Just be sure to contact the seller and verify the info in the listing is accurate before buying.
Since most of the sellers are from China their listings sometimes have inaccurate specs. The ones I bought were listed as touchscreens, but turns out they were not, but since I contacted the seller to verify the specs before buying, he made the correction and still sent me the touchscreen version for the cost of the non touchscreen.
Good Luck!
