DVD in headrests

Has anyone figured out how to install aftermarket DVD player in the headrest if a 14 super duty with my touch? I want to have audio through the speakers as the DVD plays for the kids. Is this possible ?

I have done a bunch of them, there are a couple ways you can go.. You can purchase a complete set of aftermarket headrests from any number of companies the two best being Rosen and audiovox. Screen quality is about the same for both bit the shape of the audiovox set more closely matches the factory ford one. The upholstery on both brands is exact match to factory. I sell more audiovox than Rosen though just because people like the shape better.

The other option is to mount a screen into the factory head rest. It used to be the only option in a ing ranch so I have done tons the newer ford seats are actually pretty easy to do it on there is a nice plate inside behind the foam that you can attach the mount to so it is solid but then you have a separate DVD player to mount somewhere or you have to add an output and video in motion piece to the my ford touch. I would recommend the first option it's more expensive but can be returned to stock in 10 minutes if you ever sell the truck.

Thanks for the reply. Do you put the DVD in the my touch unit or is it separate?

I think mine works using an FM transmitter and tuning to a specific frequency. I can't handle hearing a movie so my kids are required to use headphones. My system is Audiovox and looks real close to factory and they are even adjustable. My interior in the adobe leather.
