Installing factory rear ves
 
I found the overhead screen that goes on the headliner, and the dvd player that goes on the center console.

What do I need to install these things? Is the Jeep prewired for this stuff? Do I need a new headliner? Are their mounting tabs above the headliner?

Thanks for any help.

you need a mounting bracket(there are two...one for sunroof vehicles and one for vehicles without the sunroof) and two harnesses. One harness runs from the upper screen...down the a pillar to the headunit. the other harness runs from the headunit to the DVD unit in the console. Its all plug and play...the hardest part is dropping the headliner and cutting a hole for the upper screen unit. You can get all the parts from justforjeeps.com

you can get the screen and dvd player cheap on ebay. i think I paid like $125 for the two units, headphones and remote. The brackets and two harnesses can be purchased from j4j's. They could find them quickly. I used to have the part numbers....but theyve been lost after 2 years
