Install Rear Seat DVD?

Has anyone ever installed a rear seat DVD player in a truck that came from the factory without one? I bought a player and cable on line for a hundred bucks, and now I'm wondering if it is more trouble than it is worth to install.

I've got a 2008 Navigator with an OEM navigation system.

Any thoughts? Thanks.

Are you talking about an OEM system or an aftermarket system?

It's an OEM rear DVD player, one of those roof mount units. It's got a cable that plugs into the factory harness somewhere in the left rear kick panel.

I haven't looked under the headliner, so I don't know if it needs some sort of bracket or not.

I was hoping someone on this board had done this upgrade. The parts are cheap on eBay,

I am not sure if there is a bracket or how it is mounted but that should not be a problem either way. Check with the dealer and get an exploded view of how it is mounted. The cable is usually the hardest part to locate unless you buy it from the dealer$$ so you got lucky.

Another thing to consider is that you will have to send your navigation unit off to get reprogrammed for the dvd control (so you can play,pause, etc the dvd from the nav unit) That runs about $90.
