Indash DVD Players

I have a 2004 F-150, 4DR. I have the factory 6-disc changer, but want to put an after-market DVD Player in to replace my factory changer. I am real interested in the Clarion VRX755VD. You can see the unit at the link below.
http://www.clarion.com/usa/products/multimedia/VRX755VD.html

I was wondering if any one had put an In-Dash DVD Player in there truck yet, and what they thought about it. How does it look? Tough Installation? What was needed? And so forth.

Any help on the matter would be great. If you have any suggestions on other units, let me know. This one is appealing due to the iPod direct connection.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I think I am going to go with the Clarion. I have the audiophile system already in my truck. Do I need the "Premium sound" Wire Harness or will the regular one do fine.

Did you have any trouble installing yours

ELO168 I know what you mean. I seldom need the backup camera on mine, due to where I live. But boy when you need it, it's a godsend. Today I was backing up at Costco, and saw the backup lights on an Expedition light up in the camera. Not visible in the mirrors. I hit the brake, and the bone headed driver of the Expy pulled right out. Missed me by inches. Then saw me and hit the throttle rather than the brakes, and almost hit a guy walking behind her. My wife, who hasn't been happy I blew 200 bucks on the backup camera and monitor, changed her mind today.

What kind of camera did you put in ? I have some REALLY DARK TINT (5% back & back sides, 15% front, in addition the factory tint) and at night, it can be a real chore backing up. Give me a link if you can. Thanks.
