Headrest Monitor

I have an 06 Commander 65th Anniversary edition. A guy at circuit city said i cant install an overhead monitor because of the sun roofs. I want to install headrest monitor. Has anyone installed them in their commander? Post pics. Thanks.

The guy at Circuit City is wrong.....First of all...the monitor from the factory is mounted overhead...I've also seen in other threads on this forum where aftermarket monitors have been mounted overhead on Commanders with skyview

As a matter of fact here is one that was done rather economically

I installed mine and the brackets for the factory unit are not expensive at all, but having gone that way I can agree that any unit can be mounted up there with or without the special brackets.

Even if it can be mounted up there, the headrest monitors would be a much cleaner looking install.

I agree with Red and Jeeper64, the headrest monitors are a lot cleaner look. Plus, I have been shopping for some. I have found some that are already installed in the headrest already. You just have to simply exchange the OEM one. I will be doing this mod soon. Once I have enough money for the PS3 and DVD player that I wanna get. I have enough for the monitors but I might as well get everything all at once. =)

Where do you find those at? Also, if we have an '07 will we be able to upgrade to Sirius TV?

I reccomend checking with Myron Davis. They make multiple different factory matching headrest and make a great monitor. The cool thing is, if you ever sell your vehicle they will give you a new headrest for the new vehicle! (Example, have them in your Commander, you buy a Rubicon, they will give you the new headrest for it to fit in your Rubicon for free).

There are CHEAP companies out there that make this headrest replacement (jensen etc) yet if you are going to do that you might as well buy some eclipse monitors and take it to a local shop for install.

As for the overhead, cutting and drilling in the headliner is a lot more expensive to replace (if you ever want to remove the screen) than 2 headrest. there is the risk of "sagging" as well.

I work at Circuit City as in installer, and we HAVE installed overheads before in a Commander, yet I have never done one with the front sunroof. I would be ineterested to see clearance of the monitor. We would never do an install like the one linked, it is pretty tacky with the power cable and RCAS visible and ran through the sunroof like that. Everything is possible though, it just depends on the skill of the installer.
