2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
This is a great unit. I knew that it required a modified fit. I ended up having to cut away 1/2 to 3/4 inches of dash and modify the sub-dash in order to get it to accommodate this head unit. The supplied dash adapter receded the unit about 2/3 - 3/4 in. into dash. I wanted the unit to be flush with the dash like the stock unit, so I ended up not using the kit and fabricating my own securing mechanism. You must have a Dremel or some such tool to make this easy; otherwise the cutting will take forever. The wiring kit requires that you splice the Alpine Loom with adapter. Not a big deal -just 1/2 hour of soldering and heat shrinking to do it right. I am fairly adept mechanically and have the right tools. With this mods, it took 3 hours to complete the install. Fun evening project.
Pros: Big dials and easy to use
