Default HELP: Overhead monitor/dvd in 2008 ram

I have a 2008 ram and I want to install an overhead monitor in it because we are moving to Ohio and it gives my 2 year old son something to keep him occupied. My wife has one in her SUV and every time he gets in the truck he asks for the tv. The problem I have is the stupid bump in the ceiling. Is there anyone on here that has installed one in their 08 ram? Can it be done? Pics? Please help.

i have a 2010 ram with a 10.4" flip down in it! what i did was i took my dome light out!! Then that little hump in the celing is a metal brace then i took a piece of mdf, about 2" wide and 10" long and figure out exactly how thick that brace is! like take 2 sticks 2"x10" for instance if that brace was 1.5" glue the 2 sticks of mdf together!! then shove the mdf into the hole where your domelight was!!get as much glue on the mdf sticks as you can with it between your roof and headliner then glue it to the roof!! now you will have the metal brace and the mdf to mount to then the bump doesnt look like a bump like it use to cuz now you have more flat mounting surface!!!







i hope you understand what i am trying to tell you because i never knew it would be so hard to explain how to do this TILL NOW


but if you dont let me know and ill try and explain it better!!!

I think I understand what you are saying, and it makes sense. So the roof in the 2010 is the same as my 08?

What brand and model number is that you have? I like the way it looks.
