 No idea, but if you have the mounting bracket

Want to sell the mounting bracket that came with it? Send me a digital pic of it, you wont need it to set them into your head rests. OPen the leather from the bottom. Use a sharpie and trace the monitor in the foam, cut the foam to recess the monitors into the foam almost flust. Then x the leather slightly smaller then the height and width, run the wires through and then reassemble the leather over the headrest then the unit into the headres with a strip of wither double sided tape or velcro..poof Email me at Leweyb93@msn.com. I need that bracket!

Just a question for you. Why whould you want to insall that monitor in a head rest? It has built in speakers and it is a touch screen monitor. That should be the "brain" of your system. I would just get cheaper "slimmer" screens for the head rest(s). The LZ 700W is pretty thick compared to screens specifically designed for the head rest application. Just something to ponder. ...Blaze...

I wanted to install the monitors because I was pretty much trying to keep everything kenwood. Plus the speakers aren't that great in the monitor.so I am using my stereo system for audio sounds. Another bonus was that the monitors were touch screen no need for remotes like other head rest monitors. Which means no worrying about losing remotes.I have seen other vehicles in magazines with same model monitors installed in the headrest and I tried to find somebody local to my area finding out some wouldn't do it and the ones that would are charging a lot to install them. So I decided to try it myself. Which I have a pretty good idea of how I am going to install them.

That's cool. I was just wondering because I just bought the same monitor. It looks a bit thicker but, I guess it shouldn't be a problem for your particular vehicle. The head rests on those cars are pretty thick. Just becareful working with the leather. If you have a hole too big it won't look professional.

Take your time, I have seen far too many people do the whole job and then realize the LCD was slightly crooked but they failed to notice that.

As long as you pay attention to detail. You should be fine.

GOOD LUCK! :D

 What are the dimensions of the LZ700W?

I am considering putting the LZ700W in the double din sized space where the stock radio currently resides in my Silverado SS. Im just not sure about the fit. I think I would like the permanent screen in there so it looks factory, instead of the flip screen head unit...what do you guys think?
