Tape deck delete
 
Is there anywhere or anything out there that you can replace the factory tape deck in the lower dash area with. I mean anything from a video screen to a blank storage area i just wanna get rid of that tape deck.

Thanks,

Matt

Aftermarket head unit? 1/2 din equalizer?

I already put in an aftermarket head unit (pioneer DEH 77P) I was hoping for something like a nav unit or a video screen cause I want to install a drop down for the back seat...I think it was JKmotorsports who had a screen in there just dont know where or how...

I pulled the stock piece out and made one from scratch to house a monitor. I bought the monitor off ebay for $20. It was an 8" overhead unit with a broken hinge, so I took it apart and used just the raw monitor portion of it. Built the new housing and textured and painted to match the rest of the interior.

JKmotorsports -- thanks for the pics, I wish I was as mechanically inclined. I am gonna take the pix to a local shop and see what they can do for me. I noticed in a different thread you were able to show nav on top, movie on bottom and in rear...what HU did you have to run that many video outputs?

I want to do something cheap and easy to fill the space left by removing my lower CD changer (03 Denali) are there any pockets etc that will fit?

burbanman03 07-09-2008 02:30 PM

not sure
 
i know that the changer in your denali is wider that the pocket was speaking of in the previous post so all i can tell you is check with dealer and see if they have anything

I removed mine, gutted the tape deck out, lined it with the same material that is used to line tool box drawers. works great to store remote and cell phone, I have look were I stored pics, when I find them I'll post
