Hey everyone, I have a 09 journey awd v6.  It is a 7 seater with sunroof.  I’m wondering has anyone put in a roof mount DVD player.  Is there enough room to mount one? I’d like to snag one out of a dodge caravan.  Any ideas or help is appreciated.  Main reason I’d like a roof mount is because I have 4 Kids (8,5,3,4 months and we aren’t done according to my old lady).  If I can’t do roof mount I’ll do removable cheap headrest ones

There was much discussion on this in the past.  Try a forum search but....

 

To install a roof mount you need to remove the headliner, then install support brackets, replace the rear heat/AC controls(I think) with a different style. then run wires/cables from the radio to the unit.  As I recall the consensus was go with the headrest mount.

 

Good luck....

Thanks! I kept searching and searching on here and the results came up nil, or it changed my keywords.  Joys of searching from a mobile device.  You gave me all the information I needed.  Thanks again! Headrest ones are the way to go! Cheaper and easier I imagine too!

Be aware the Journey has “active” headrests. A part of the SRS. Check your manual and verify if hanging anything on them impacts their operation.
