i dont get it, do you want aftermarket radio to install? if so then here is what you will need before install:

and here is how to install it:

This works for single or double din, for single din get the single din mounting kit instead of the double din one I got.

I actually found 2 double din radios I might be purchasing, good prices 1 is the Amazon.com: JVC KW-XG500 Double DIN In-Dash CD Receiver with Front AUX Input J-Bus Expandable (Black): Electronics and the other Amazon.com: Sony WXGT77UI Double Din CD Player with USB 1-wire for iPod and other USB Devices (Black): Electronics but what i was wondering is what else do i need to purchase besides the stereo?

im very hesitant to replace my stock deck because of how big it is, i'm trying to avoid the massive gaps!

Carpe Diem, and if that fails...well just hit the gas!
