Here is the before and after shots of my 2006 Grand 3.7 V6. I am the original owner and bought it with 6 miles on it.

MAC MINI AND RADIO:

Now all of those photos were taken a year ago when I started up the project. Since then I have done more to clean it up and have redone the screen in the dash. I will have my wife take pictures soon and will update.

I had the mac as my video/mp3 player while the shark radio was for FM signal using the OEM antenna. It was good, but my wife wanted a less static signal so I bought the JVC El Kameleon KD-AVX4 as seen at:

http://www.crutchfield.com/S-QdY9t1E...-KD-AVX44.html

So there is no actual need for the mac mini as much now that I bought that. I had them both installed and used the mac as my mp3 source when no good songs were on the radio or someone wanted to watch a movie. Instead the 7" screen is still in place with the radio below it using the video out mode. I can use a thumb drive or my iphone/ipod to use on the radio for trips and can still use three screens for video.

Come to think of it... I will be removing the radio this January in preparation for my move to Germany. Only one English radio station and trust me, the AFN is not always great on road trips.

I also am on the forums at mp3car.com b/c of my mac mini used for the radio and etc. I was going to use it for whole entertainment reasons, but I keep adding to and overdoing lots of things. I will post a few photos in a sec to show you the extra battery and such...

BRUSH GUARD AND EXTRA LIGHTS:

DASH: ( Newer housing for the screen, moved info bar to the lower bar where I only had the ESP button, added Griffen power mate to control Mac, added JVC El Kameleon kd-avx44 radio below screen, hardwired the radar behind the dash and moved it to the top left of windsheild. ) You will see that there is a blank space to the left of the radio. The ESP button will go here.

SUN VISOR UP:

I try to keep things looking stock as much as possible. The less people think that I have in here the less chance I have of them breaking into my world and stealing all that I love.

** SOON **
I plan to use two USB monitors for the headrest for the people in the back to watch. Then after that is complete I am taking my Jeep to a friend who will recover the front and back seats in dark slate leather. The back windows are tinted dark so the screens will not easily be seen from the outside.

These are the USB monitors that I will be putting in soon. So technically I will have 5 monitors if you count the 3.5 on the radio.

Forget about the Jet chip and save your money it is an absolute JOKE. Sonic Electronix has great audio and video prices and moparpartsamerica.com has Jeep accessories at reasonable prices.

Thank you for the site info and also about the Jet chip. I have not heard much from this community talk much about the chip being good or bad. Much appreciated.
