Other than that, any cheapy head unit will work. I would recomend better speakers though, the stocks wont handle much power and seem to burn out under stock amp, especialy the rears.

If you want to run an amp either now, or in the future, you might consider a "modular" speaker wiring setup, all the way back to storage compartment in the cargo floor. This spot is perfect for terminating all your stereo wiring, big enough, for just about any amp, and also low profile - if fear of theft is an issue.
To go fully "modular", you'll need to run dedicated grounds as described by AT. You'll also need to run sections of speaker wire from the area of each speak to the stash box. The idea is to have the option (at the wiring harness near each speaker) to either plug in the speaker, or extend the harness back to the cargo box. With this wiring set up, and the right OEM connectors, you could either feed the speaks fron the dash, or the stash box area.
If you are interested in trying this, and need more info, email me.
good luck, John

UPDATE: just stopped at a pawn shop, where for $20 I got a pair of Kenwood 2-way 6.5" speakers for the rear, gonna run some wires back as I'm using the stock front speaker wires...
'Nother update: ran new wires back to the new Kenwoods, it sounds great but now of course the stock front speakers are drowned out completely. I'd recommend replacing all 4 at once, cause you'll be going back for the 2 you don't do at first.
