Default 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

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?

Default 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
