2007 Rocky mtn complete upgrade

So I am upgrading my commander, just thought i would post it on the forum and see what every one thought.

Started with the interior, I went from grey cloth to katskin leather, and then I upgraded all of the speakers from the factory boston to kicker, and the head unit I changed to a 7 inch touch screen and installed a carputer running centra fuse. I am a computer geek so this makes sense. Pics are below I am still working on getting the dash finished from where i had to modify for the touch screen. Next I think I am going with a lift kit, and maybe try to solve the on air supply thread. Well i thought I had pics of the car pc, I will post them when I get home this afternoon.

Thanks for looking

The kit was right at 2000 including install. I can remember the exact color codes, but they are a slate gray and Light Charcoal black, with the upgraded jeep logo. Glad everyone likes them. I will post some more pics of the Jeep and the interior tomorrow from the car show we are having. Posted in the meet and greet section really would like to see some of the other commaders out.

Carputer

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carputer is the predominant term used to describe a category of mobile computer designed or modified to specifically be installed and run in automobiles. Originally these were based on industrial personal computer technology, but as smartphones and PDAs have become more powerful, and have included useful technologies like GPS and Bluetooth, they have become the predominant base platform for developing carputers.

Many do-it-your-selfers have built carputers from laptops and small form factor computers like netbooks.

The recent popularity of carputers has caused the creation of more advanced units that use touch screen interfaces, integrate with vehicles via OBD-II link, and offer a variety of other add-ons like rear-view cameras and GPS. It is now possible to find assembled carputers complete with wireless capabilities and built-in microphones for sale on the internet.
