Overhead drop down DVD system

I have a 2003 crew cab that I'd like to to install an overhead rear entertainment DVD system in for my kids to watch when we go on camping trips. I have stopped at a few local auto audio/electronic places and no one that I can find makes one to fit this truck. The center cross support on the roof would cause a universal not to mount flush unless I cut it (I really do not want to cut a support section). I see trucks with them all the time, so I know they're out there, but who makes a unit for the crew cab F250?

Thanks in advance for any help/recommendations

I have one in my crew cab. I mounted it on the support which left gaps. Then I made filler pieces and wrapped them in black vinyl. If you take your time and do it right you can barely notice them.

I thought of this.... That's maybe what I'll end up doing, just make a custom bezel. Thanks

Thanks, those look pretty good. I just bought the dual headrests for my wife's car, but didn't think I'd care for them in my truck since the seat is a one piece. However those turned out pretty nice! I guess I have some thinking to do.
