Re: DVD's in, Chrome strip off!

I didn't want the Jeep option DVD because it looked kinda cheap to me. Plus, I was not willing to give up that huge sunroof!

Can you take a photo of where the wires enter the seat (from the DVD unit)?

Re: DVD's in, Chrome strip off!

I found a dealer here that has these DVD players installed on a WK2 they have in stock, looks real good and factory installed.

Re: DVD's in, Chrome strip off!

Do you know where they put the power module or if anyone knows where to plug in for power for these type of DVD player solutions? Is it in the center console like most? I would like to DIY this project as I am good with electronics and removing trim to a degree without breaking most (hopefully) anything. If not could you find out? Looks awesome btw!

Re: DVD's in, Chrome strip off!

I found the install guide for the Jeep online in pdf form. I can't post it because it's over the 5MB limit. Looks like power is taken from under the passenger seat in the power inverter/battery area.

Install guide for the Jeep can be found here:

Re: DVD's in, Chrome strip off!

is the cable visible when looking down between the seat and center console or is able to go underneath the carpet under the console?

Thanks for the PDF...this is the one mod I planned on doing when I elected to go with the pano roof as well.
