Default How would you do it / Would you do it

Was thinking about putting in a pop up screen up on the dash. So all you have to do is pop it up hook up a player and watch a movie or something long these lines. I wanted to get some ideas on how yall would do something like this or if yall have already done something like this

Ya double din or the single din flip out screens

Just remember it is illegal to have a movie playing in the front seat area. Even for the passenger to watch. Unless it is a portable dvd player they can hold.

Well it gets pretty dark in my cab at night due to the tint windows but it's not on every time just when I'm going on long trips (vacation). Other than that, I listen to my ipod

First, you will need the dash kit, to actually mount it,thats only like 5 bucks though,and I would go with a single din, although double dins are great, I have had 2, but single dins, to me are better because when you turn you truck off and get out it collapses in, and looks like a stock radio bezel, and they run ALOT cheaper than a double din!!

Well when I bought my new pioneer double din I bought and installed the bypass for it because it was easier than running wires to the brakes

You could also instead get a power inverter, digital projector and a few related set-up options and create a portable movie theater..a drived-in theater!!!..with the projector..projecting back from the cab of your truck. The screen would have to be the side of a light colored building or such. Or an improvised white screen of enough size. Stick to short classy stuff like 'Faster Pussycat...Kill!!....KILL!!!'.
