    Howdy. I'm beating my head into the keyboard after pissing away half a tank farm's worth of gas yesterday trying to find a new stereo and could use a fresh direction to look. Here's what I'm after:

    Single-DIN
    AM/FM/CD (single disc)
    XM Ready
    SWC Jack
    Simple/straightforward operation

    Stuff I don't need:

    Nav (know how to read maps/signs and have a handheld for the backwoods)
    IPOD (I don't do crapple--at all)
    Bluetooth (truck already has it)
    HD (dunno if/what area stations might even exist)
    Subwoofer/expandability support

    I had decided on the Alpine CDE-124SXM until I found out it doen't have an SWC port. I can live without these if I have to, but they are right there staring at me every time I'm in the truck so might as well use them if I can. I do have an MP3 player so a jack would be nice, but certainly not a deal-breaker. I listen to either FM or XM 95% of the time anyway. I plan to continue to use the stock speakers and am only doing this so I can take back half the dash space Toyota bogarted with the crappy OEM unit to free it up for my CB.

    Sorry to start yet another 'HU recommendations' thread, but I haven't been able to find one that quite led down the road I'm trying to go and didn't want to hijack somebody else's for my whining. Thanks.
