Ok electronic gurus, I need some info. I got a Jensen vm-9511 for free in working condition. Its a 7" touch screen, in dash dvd player.

First of all, is it even worth putting in the Jeep, or save for my next vehicle when I sell my Rubi?

Second, what would be involved in installing this in my Rubi? I have factory 7 speaker / sub and single cd player. I assume its more in depth than just hooking in a cd player wiring harness and install kit?

i don't think you'd need more than the wiring harness and install kit. for what it's worth i say do it and put your factory radio in storage so you can reinstall that when you sell the vehicle.

i think you can even hook up a rear bumper camera to that thing, you know, to check out that rock you just climbed over ;)

or better yet one right infront of you diff to see if your gonna hit a rock!!

for me it would be way to complicated and daunting to even try, i would just sell it and buy something i wanted or needed, but if you think you can figure out how to do it it would be really cool!

Well lets say you get $500 for it. You can get a really good hooker for $500 or 500 really ugly hookers for $1. Use your judgement on what you want to do with it.

Awesome, thanks skeeter. Didnt see that when I checked out the DVD player on the internet:rolleyes:

Buffalo, I already have a factory CD player, dont really need another. I cant really sell it either, I would feel bad. My father pissed off a lot of his employees by keeping it for me, and not giving it to them. Not to mention my sis was PISSED when she found out I got it, and daddys-girl didnt :p :flipoff: I just dont want to put it in, and have to tell him that some @#%%#$*%#$* from "B-MORE YO!" decided he wanted it more :chair: :) Ill check out whats involved later and let yall know, incase you were wondering.

Id really rather not go into detail about it and offend any of the hardcore jeepers here :) Let me say that I love my Rubi, I really do, and I am not planning on selling it TOMMORROW. Just not planning on keeping it forever (originally I was):cool:

I know, right! But think about this way... it has an SD media card slot in the headunit, which is what my cell phone (palm pilot phone) and my digital camera use. My laptop also has an SD media card slot, so I could just toss my music on that and go, without having to buy anymore cds. Also, it is Ipod and xm/sirius ready, although I already have XM and Sirius recievers at my house, and refuse to buy an IPOD.

Plus, think about this too. Pick up your favorite girl (in this cause my gf/fiance'..w/e) and take her out to a good woods trail. Maybe something that crosses a creek by the moonlight or something. Have the top/doors off and park there in the woods, where nothing but a Jeep can get to, and pop in a movie. Have a little picnic in the Jeep, watch a movie, maybe pitch a tent and spend the night there, or just have some fun after the movie and go home :D :D Sounds like a good idea to me anyway :)

BTW, that program you sent me to didnt do too much skeeter :( Just told me what I already knew. 1 1/2 din stock, and what color wires are what. Since I plan on taking it out in less than a year, Id rather try to find a wiring harness than have to solder then twice in a year. Im gonna stop at best buy on the way home from the red cross. Damn people called my house twice a day for the last 3 weeks. Finally said theyd give me a 10 dollar gas card to drive out of my way to one of their places, so I figured they must be desperate and made an apointment for today (no gas card though.. id feel like crap using it). Apprently A negative is a rare blood type? I dunno.. Ill let yall know what best buy says about dvd players in a TJ
