^^ he raises a very good point.

And maybe more importantly, you're going to be reaching waaaay over to teh right to fiddle with your radio whie driving.
I get annoyed enough with the stock location on teh 2nd gen trucks, being pretty far down low in the center of teh dash, I feel liek I have to really move my attention away from teh road when changing stations, loading a CD etc.

If I were designin ga dash from scratch, I'd mount that sucker high and and close to the wheel as possible...

FWIW Im not a big fan of the motorized head units, I had 2 of them break in my old camry and no longer open/close and I didnt do a thing. They were $$$ Pioneer, replaced under warranty then that one broke so I said F it and bought a regular old HU.

Had another idea, could build up the dash with fiberglass and bondo and paint it with plastic paint. It will come out very nice-but its alot of work.

seriously .. it's not much of a reach .. it's basically the STOCK location and I dont think interups my "attention" to much .. so really I dont think it will be an issue .
gotta remember .. I'm trying to keep this stock "style" so I kind of want to keep it "factory looking"

thats some good info .. I was really wanting the motorized head unit for "status" ... but I'm really re-considering now .

Yeah, that was another reason, i would never suggest a pop-out screen to anyone. I'd rather have a stock HU.
BUt if you can modify it for double-din, i would put in a 6.5 or 7" touchscreen in any day.

No way at all you can install a double din to mod the dash?

FWIW things that do more than 1 function never seem to work that well imho.

I have a garmin GPS I use for work, NUVI 750 model. Mounts to the windshield or w/e you want pretty much. Works EXCELLENT since I use it every single day driving a truck all over the place.

Just imho..

That is just a nav unit that locks on to the head unit, you still need a screen.
My cousin has an older one it works pretty good. Updated maps are pretty expensive tho.

ok .. so basically done today .. just have to locate the sterio , (still not sure on which one I'm using ) and "finish " of the dash bezzle .. I have been thinking of a woodgrain type covering/paint .. to simulate the original , maybe the "inferno Red " paint , I was even thinking of covering it in carbon fiber ... anyway not sure
here's how it is now ..
