While playing around with places to install my gauges (still a work in progress folks), I made a discovery. If I completlly gut the upper cubby in the center of the dash, with minimal modification I can fit a DIN radio in the hole that is left. I have to check behind that spot to see If it is physically workable.
The 2005 Limited has that nasty auto HVAC unit built into the radio. I already have one patch module so it sort of works with bluetooth and ipod, but it is clunky. I can not get rid of the factory radio. The factory radio is a 6 disck changer that plays MP3 (updated from a 2009). IN Blu and the Justy I have a nice media player that works very well with everything.
I freely admit that my electronics skills are a bit lacking.
I was wondering..... Is it possible to have two stereos wired in parallel to the speakers and such? I would use the stock unit just for discs, I would use the DIN mount for everything else.
