beren I bought the Pioneer AVH-3400nex. Fry's had a special for $300. The downside is it blocks my vents with the flip up screen. Has anyone tried to use heat or something to bend down the dash bezel so it doesn't look so bad if you have one of the wood trim ones? I like this radio but man i miss those vents in summer so I have to retract the screen

Dirtbilly This my custom modified bezel, looks like it came from the factory.

Expensive? Yeah, probably. Depends on how you look at it. Had this truck for 21 years. Never made a payment on it since I had a trade-in and paid cash for the balance. Have you seen the window sticker for a 2019 Cummins with the Nav package? I'm old now too and need that 9" screen to see. Carplay is all worth it IMO. Good luck.

Stormin08 my note 4 sits right in front of the gauge cluster, and does all of that flawlessly....minus a dvd.

mykeb You cant connect your phone to the factory radio without wires going everywhere.
You cant play DVDs,
Cant watch YouTube vids
Cant access GPS thru factory radio
All things can be done keeping the factory radio, but you would have to buy a bunch of add on stuff...seperate GPS seperate 12v DVD player, etc.
When it is cheaper, more efficient and cleaner to just install a double-din.

I'm very happy with it even though it sticks out in front of the dash a inch or so. It is a massive 9" display which I love. Installation was straightforward and love Carplay and it doesn't block anything else on the dash. I've purchased the accessory to allow a additional screen to show light switches, etc but haven't found time to install it yet. Just another option if you don't want to hack the bezel up but still want more of the features a double din offers.

Stormin08 but, at the cost of lossing some hvac ducting outlet locations.

easily relocated under the dash...

Water_Lover With a little work you can do a Ipad instead of a double din
