Hey, this is for a friend. He has a Clarion flip out he wants to put in his '98 Limited. What's the best way to fit this? Can you move the middle air vents to make it work?? Thanks for the help

Assuming this is a 7in screen you are dealing with, there are a couple of options you can go with. One option is cut out the over hand and install it directly into the spot where the stock receiver goesso that it can flip up. The other option is the one you were referring to. You would swap the AC/heater controls with receiver so that way your DVD player flips out and comes up over your vents. My brother did this mod in his jeep and I can take a picture of it this weekend for you. He did have it professionally installed for a few hundred because I believe the grands have 1.5 DIN units but most receivers have 1 or 2 so there is some cutting involved. Just send me a PM to remind me to take the picture and I'll post it for you [smilie=bal_cool.gif]

Hey Jeepin, I responded to your PM. I took a ton of pictures yesterday and I'm going to try and post it up in a few hours. I tried to get all the angles with it opening and closing for you [smilie=bal_cool.gif] I'll pm you when I get it up and link it for you.

Wow! That looks really clean (except for the dust, LOL). No butchery. Well done. [smilie=bal_cool.gif]

Yeah, my brother cleans his jeep less than I do. We had a shop near us do it for like $150. We thought about doing it, and then realized how bad we could screw it up :mrgreen:
