    I just got a new 05 DC 4x4, and while I love the steering controls miss the RDS info from the radio. Any suggestions for a new HU that will get me the RDS info and match the orange dash. Basically kind of look stock.

    Just don't need navigation and a lot of fancy options like DVD and backup cameras, but want to upgrade the stock HU.

    Any good deals out there for an older fart way behind in the car audio
    world :) Just want something that will match the dash and look kind of stock.

    My JVC Arsenal kda815 can be matched to practically any color you want. I think it matches pretty well and sounds great.

    A lot of HU's give you many options to change the color.

    you can also find also find head units that are capable of hard wired remote controls so that you can still use the steering wheel controls on the new headunit. The higher end pioneer and premier head units are able to change display colors (i think its 256 colors) and have the hard wire control option too
