Default Head Unit
I was trying to be cheap and keep the factory head unit but I was getting some major white noise from it. After a ton of adjustments to the speaker wiring and amplifier, I figured it was the head unit.

Installed the new one and no more white noise. Here goes a link to the dash kit I used, Metra 95-6528B Dash Kit. I was impatient and purchased mine at an audio store and paid a premium for it too. You can find it cheaper on Amazon.

Looks good! I'm about to do the same except I'm using a stock Nav bezel as to avoid that faceplate you used. For me it just makes for a cleaner looking install. Also I have the wood grain, so big black plastic on top of if would just look out of place for me.

Hey did you have to cut out any trim behind the radio before you installed the double din. I'm picking up my truck next week and got a Kenwood ddx394 and a sub and what not to install.

Yeah, you have to cut a couple of spots nothing big though. The only thing I don't like about the kit is that the radio is not flush with it.

That's on my to do list though, shave it down a little.
