    Do you have something in mind? Factory or aftermarket? Do you want it viewable by 2nd and 3rd row seats? Do you plan to buy a whole kit?

    I want to install a aftermarket combo lcd dvd in the 2nd row. I have no idea as how to fasten it. I have a friend who can wire it. We just need a few points in the right direction. thanks for any help!

    This video should help you:


    Apparently, you can actually hang an overhead monitor stright off of the headliner, using a backer plate on the other side of the headliner. I would just assume that you couldn't hang things of a certain weight up there, but then again, that shouldn't be selling them as overhead units if they aren't ight enough to be hung in that fashion.
  5. I purchased and installed just the overhead monitor and installed a DVD in dash player. The monitor weighs a lot less that the whole setup. I just attached the monitor to my head liner and have had no problems. Just install it far enough away from the rear controls so you can still reach them. As far as the 2nd seat viewers I installed headrest monitors.
