Put one of the flaps on the head unit before sliding it into the sleeve in the dash, making sure that you pull on the back of the flap as you slide the radio in, to where the flap sticks about an inch or so off the back of the headunit after it's all the way in. Take and exacto and trim the front of the flap around the headunit, and then put the trim ring on.

My Kenwoods have cooling on the back of the headunit. so no problems with the headunit overheating. Been doing this since the mid 90's and haven't lost a radio since!

I went with no head unit. Instead I'm using wet sounds blue tooth and 2 ch amp mounted under the dash. For speakers I went with the same brand using the 8" wake board speakers and mounted them next to the rear seats above the tires. Out of the way and sounds great. Though I'm thinking about upgrading to a 4 ch amp and adding 2 7" speakers in the front. Mounted in front of the stick shift.

My speedo was off getting repaired. The black knob is the volume, station, everything controller.

No problems with theft. Though the jeep is garage kept. The speakers are bolted down. A thief would have to get under the wheel well and unbolt them.

very true. I was even thinking of doing on my set up maybe doing one or two little tack welds to just really hold them in place from the underside so even if they try to take it they need to at least bring some kind of blade to cut it out.

I'm getting less and less worried about thieves these days. Most of the teens and young adults I've run into lately have no clue how to drive a standard. Heck it took a few of them awhile to figure out how to roll down the manual windows! hahaha. I just left the period correct cassette player in mine, it still sounds good and I figured no one would want to steal that.
