I use the tape deck for my Ipod. I have a tape adapter than I plug into my Ipod and then in the deck. It works much better than an Fm transmitter. That and this fits right into the stock brackets no problem.

I opted for flip/hideaway as a theft deterrent. I don't want a big screen screaming "break my window and take me." With this unit I can hide the screen and take part of the faceplate with me. DVD player, touchscreen NAV, Sirius. Love it. Next time I'm going with Alpine because Kenwood's interface isn't nearly as good. But for price, Kenwood is great.

MC that is just crazy. Is theft that high where you are?

I lived in Philly for 5 years and only had my car broken into once because I was stupid and left a duffel bag in it. They never tried for my stereo.

I installed mine myself and after soldering the harnesses together it took all of 30 minutes. It is easy to do. I got my head unit and install kit from Crutchfield, and I wouldn't do it any other way.

I did the same thing from the same compnay. I don't have a pic of my HU though. It's nothing special, but I wanted the ability to play MP3 CD's.

I wasn't too happy with the mounting kit from Crutchfield, but unless I fab my own, there isn't anything better. And the slot below was almost the perfect size for my in dash DVD / CD-RW drive for my car computer.

Yea I was going to go through cruchfield but just wondering how hard it was to pull everything off looks like it was a pretty easy job.
When I talked to a crunch rep last night he said the clearance on the front door speakers my be really close and will probably have to trim a little.
Any of you replace the 6X9's in the front and have to trim.?

I re done my how to and put in under the how to stereo upgrade.
The head unit only is a really fast swap, they sell a harness for it.
Amps and speakers and a custom sub took 8 hours. MC

I replaced the 6x9's with inifinity reference speakers. The infinity's screwed right on to the factory bracket, it was cake.

The rears, on the other hand, were a pain, but that's because I didn't go thru crutchfield and I had to use the infinity brackets.

I went through cardomain. They matched the price of a competitor and added the wiring harness for free. Mine mounted right in place all you have to do is remove the metal brackets and attach them to your unit. Crutchfield is a great company with great service, but they are kind of pricey.
