Only time I messed with one of them was a roomates. It was cool and all, but the screen wouldn't come out in the cold (this was in Alaska, so it's only cold about 1/2 the year)... or sometimes it would come out, but the LCD wouldn't work well (cold).

They are around $800-900 these days though. He paid like $2000, cause they were pretty new at the time and of course he got the top of the line one.

This one looks like a good choice:

OR could buy some nice injectors and listen to THEM tunes... BROOOOOOMM BEEEEEERRRRRRRRMMMMMMMM OOOOOMMMMMMM :)

Excellent Advice..... We might be headed on a trip to New York so something a little more than the stock stereo might have to do... For entertainment value anyways.. oooh yeah stick are going in too before we go!!!! :thumbup:

Nate I also looked and that one won't work in my truck??? according to their fitment guide???

Your Radio Is Din And 1/2 Size So If You Have Two Options Either One That Flips Out Or Trim The Dash And Put In A Double Din Radio That Has The Full Screen Displayed In The Dash I Have Access To Panasonic, Pioneer And Jensen All With I Pod Controls, Nav, Dvd, And Can Access Blue Tooth You Are Looking At Around A Grand And Up To Have All Of Those Features.

Ok so will I also have to get "adapter kits" and what not?? I know about the trimming of the din for the dual din ones I am thinking It wouldn't bother me to do that because my truck can get pretty dirty at times and less moving parts the better.. How hard is it to install?

If You Do The Double Din You Will Have To Modify A Kit(25.00) And Trim Your Dash Panel. And You Will Also Need A Wir Harness (15.00 To 30.00) Depending On Stock Radio Options

Tomorow I Will Get Some Prices For You. I Have A Trick Backup Camera That Is A License Plate Frame With An Adjustable Camera Built Into The Top Of It. It Is Around 250.00 For That One. All The Decks Will Accept A Backup Camera Input

Cool thanks... The only bad thing about my rear bumper is I have to trim about 1" off each side to get the liscense plate to fit into the hole.... Not sure if it's a manufacter phuk up or what?? so that would be a bummer.. I actually saw those at best buy....

Cagdodge, do you always capitalize the first letter of every word? :lol:

LuvinaCummins. Do you have a securetiy System in the truck? I would think about it with that fancy radio. Don't want Pedro or Jamal getting in your ride and disappering with it.
