Was it too hard to install yourself or did you want it professionally installed?

Lol I just don't have alot of patience and suck at following directions, I am the type of girl that leaves it up to the professionals lol. Unless it comes to the simple jobs like changing tires/fluids lol

Always run pioneer and kenwood. Never a issue with them but I believe the pioneer has a better bass sound than the kenwood. Or so it seems to me anyways

I think you can get a double din kit or use a bezel from 01-04.

Someone should be able to verify this.

I THINK the 94-98s have to have a single din pretty sure there's mounts that would need to be cut to do a double din best bet if u want a double din pick one out at a shop and see if they can do it unless someone chimes in with an easy way to convert it

Thanks Nate.

I think the double din bezel was introduced in 2001.

Not sure though.
