You don't remove as much as you would think from the overlay and it comes with a decent looking beauty ring. After a double din install, why would you ever want to go back

I recently installed the Alpine iLX-F309 in my 1998.5. There are some cons to it but overall I'm happy esp having Carplay and a big 9" screen. Side benefit is being able to use Google Maps and the satellite imagery. Carplay is worth the price and all other negatives IMO.
If I knew about this install kit ahead of time I probably would've gone that direction but the Alpine sticking out a bit doesn't bother me any. My previous radio was a Kenwood flipup and that worked OK for 10 years before it just got too outdated (Sirius radio wasn't supporting all channels available).

1998.5 DodgeRam QC SB, custom auto, Smarty, Bulldog Induction Hood, and lots of other goodies.

All double DIN should be the same size. it's a standard. There are at least 2 single DIN carplay/AA head unit, Jenson and Alpine make them. The downside is it's motorized so not sure how durable it is for off road.

The android units Im eyeing on amazon all have slightly different dimensions by a 1/4 or so

Here's my install. I think I want to pull the raio forward slightly. I also reprogrammed the start up/splash screen

Same boat...I got the wood bezel too. it's tempting to cut. That metal bit inside the dash behind the bezel wouldn't be an issue for the Sony radio I have in mind. Most of the radio fits like a single din on the top half. Screen is the only thing that takes up the 2nd din and just where the screen is.

some have tried. it doesn't usually work very well. not that the phones work well either. bluetooth was never a perfectly reliable standard, and the connection issues to the iquad make it worse.

Also android auto and apple car play are not compatible with iquad app.

I have the same Sony radio in my 96, it just sticks out a bit but requires NO cutting of plastic and can be reversed or updated in minutes. Very happy with this choice
