Looks good as far as I can see but we need more pictures from more angles :smile:

I like the idea of the flip out for a few reasons:

1. Security - Less tempting to thieves if they don't see a big screen through your front windows, might not even realize it's got one.
2. Size - Gives a nice little cubby hole when using a single din receiver, lots of possibilities to put in there.
3. Flexible Control - A lot of them I have seen can function without having the screen out/up so that you can use basic CD and radio controls by touch without having to stare at a touch screen while driving.

There are downsides to be sure, but if I was going to swap my OEM radio out I'd seriously consider this type of head unit.

see I bought a jenson off eBay a couple of years ago and the head unit looks great...ties in with the truck very nice and almost looks like a stock HU which is what I wanted but it gives me problems quite often..i dont know if I got a lemon or if its the brand or kind I got i dont know. I looked up what I got before I got it and it had great reviews also

i had the Jensen/Phase Linear UV8020 double din as my first HU in the beaSSt... thing took a crap on me after 2 years...

swapped it out for the Pioneer AVH4300 and never looked back since... for me, Phase Linear is garbacho.. but to each their own as they say :crackup:

Jesus this is a full blown Hijack long answer short.

Kenwood Kenwood Kenwood best HU after that I'm not a fan of any of there speakers or amps.
Alternates-a $200 set up from ALPINE gets 45 true rms to all your door speakers all off the stock harness pretty sweet gig.

Pioneer is cool too...I guess for people that buy Blue SS's :biggrin:
