    Default Overhead DVD Screen

    hey guys i'm looking at buying an extended cab truck and i'm wanting to put an overhead dvd player and screen in the back for my daughter. i have no idea how to mount it to the roof. i'm good with the wiring and everything like that but the actual mount to the ceiling i have no idea how they actually mount. any advice or someone thats put on in could help me would be great. its possibly going in a 1993 x cab silverado.


    thanks

    Andy,

    Mine is attached to a board in between the headliner and roof of the truck.....you may have to cut your headliner for wiring etc.

    Personally if I had it to do all over again I would go with the monitors in the headrests. When the monitor is down you cant see out rearview mirror - also I have noticed that the weight of the screen when flippped down makes the headliner sag just enough(not a noticeable sag looking at it) that the board rattles against the roof when you hit a bump in the road or drive down a dirt road.

    I plan to redo the cloth interior in leather so I will probably dump the overhead and redo the head liner also.
