    Hey guys. I'm not a huge fan of the OEM stereos in my truck and reading some of the posts here about stereo probs just gives me more evidence to replace it. I've been thinking about installing something different but I'd like to see what and how other people's stereo's look like in their cabs to give me some ideas. If anyone's got some pics I'd appreciate it!

    Depends what you want. Check out MR Marv's threads, the audio sub section, ect. There's tons of pics of single din and double din installs. Personally I wanna do a double din with touch screen/ect...

    Also, for the record my '08's radio has yet to have issues. Skips around on a cd once in a blue moon but no worse than any other vehicle I've had.

    I have a single DIN Pioneer that's nice. Transferred it from my Jeep last year. Just changing to an aftermarket head unit made a huge difference in the sound quality. I'm still using the OEM speakers.

    Here's my setup:
