Mine uses LCD panels in the headrests of the front seats and ties into the head unit (system was in the truck when I purchased it). Also has a way to tie into just the rear LCDs via a panel at the bottom of the B-pillar. Haven't thought about adding a dedicated DVD to the back of the truck. I'll try to get pics tonight when I get home from work (rode the VFR to work today so can't just run to the parking lot and snap some for you).

First off, sorry this is late. Second, forgive the bad cell phone pics. First pic is the head unit; pretty standard. Plays DVDs and can output to the rear LCD panels. Wish it could play the DVD with output to the rear LCD and keep Navi or music on front display; distracting when you're driving and would rather watch movies.



This is the aux input mounted at the bottom of the passenger-side b-pillar. Looks nice until you plug something in, then the whole assembly drops out. Apparently the installer cut the hole too big.



This last one is of the rear LCD panels. Apparently someone tried tilting the entire assembly up rather than just the panel. The driver's side isn't quite this bad but wanted you to see what it can look like. I have not tried fixing the upholstery yet.

Interested in ways guys have gotten around the 'center beam' that the dome lights are mounted to. Is there an adapter that can be purchased?

Those head mounted ones look like they aren't recessed correctly. I know you aux they were in they already, but I was stating it for the op. The head rest one look good. But cutting king ranch leather is crazy and scary ha ha. Expensive potential mistake...

I have a local guy who has done headrests in KR trucks. Big time installs from the pictures. He is actually an Excursion guy, so he knows our rigs. Anyway - I like the look of the headrest ones better, but not a big fan of the remote mount DVD player as it will be an issue for the kids. overhead works much better in that situation.

Wish I could fab something to come out of the center console.
