    I don't know if I would ever put in an aftermarket unit myself. Just seems like it needs to be designed to fit or it don't look right.

    However, the ones that hang over the rear buckets don't look too bad. Just can't see them in the front seat. Of course, don't need to watch while driving anyhow.

It has everything- 4 way amplifier, DVD player, tuner, Sirius radio campatibility, you can even set it up for a second zone if you want to listen to the radio while your kids watch a movie on headphobes in the back.
    My Alpine IVA-D300 never got close to the gear shift with the 7" motorized screen. It was still quite far away. It only cost me $1000 also, from a car audio specialty store, has the multi-zones, and multi-screen hookup including back-up camera input and satellite radio ready.

    I have done several of these and they are really easy. I am putting a 10 flip down in the front of the third seat on my yukon this week, has a built in DVD player and Infrared transmitter so it will broadcast to the kids wireless headphones. Peace and quiet is a wonderful thing. I got this unit shipped for about $175 from ebay. It was a brand new Pyle audio product and works great. It even has extra outputs so I can add screens to the headrests and an input so the Nintendo Gamecube can be hooked in as well.
