    Im looking at getting the Pioneer AVH4400BH unit and was wondering if would be compatible with my truck. I'm worried about it fitting properly. Any suggestions?

    It will fit. Here is your deck in someone else's truck. Taco's are very accommodating when it comes to upgrading stereo equipment. Any questions, feel free to PM me.

    I had that AVHP4200DVD, same thing, but the previous year's model. You guys gotta do the bypass to make it DVD capable :)

    Apparently this is really easy, but I have no clue what this is? Please forgive my ignorance. Can you please explain?

    It means you wire a relay to turn off the safety feature that prevents the viewing of video by the driver while the vehicle is being driven. It is not super easy, but requires the hard-wiring of a 12 volt relay.

    There is an actual kit if I understand what my audio guy tells me. Its TR-7 http://www.Amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0002J22BO/ref=redir_mdp_mobile

    You would have to do some research because I know it works on Alpine, don't know about Pioneer.

    You guys are awesome! I need to do some research on this before I wire up my Pioneer AVH-P4400BH. I'm trying to find out as much info as possible beforehand so I can do it right the first time. Thanks for the info.
