Okay i have a 2000 TJ and i know that i would have no trouble fitting a double DIN head in it. My dad however has an 04 and though the radio is the same size the shape is more curved. Will a regular after market double DIN head fit in an 04 TJ?
The reason I asking is cuz he wants nav and i think this thing is the sheeeeeeiiiiiiiit:
well im sure that u could make it work, if u wanted to. but i know that i tried to put my stock head unit in a my friends 04. i didnt fit in to well but some work with a drumel we got it to work. if need a hand let me know. i used to install stuff like this at best buy.
I'm not sure that a double DIN will even fir in your jeep, atleast not with out some trimming. If your Dad wants a Nav system he should check on ebay for a Mopar one. It will fit very nice in his 04 dash.
I can say from exp that even though your stock radio area looks like it will fit a double din, its actually a din and a1/2 size and your gonna have some mod/fab work for fit a double din in there. My Alpine 3da-w882 is a double din 3 disc changer/folddown display tape deck and it took me a solid week to figure out a way to mount it.I had to trim away some of the outside bezel as well as some of the main dash panel to get room to fit. its in there now but man it was more trouble then it was worth. How does that radio mount if its ISO din as in bolts around the middle section of the radio instead of the front 4 corners your in for a fun fit,
