    just make sure you have wire crimpers, strippers(not women), butt connectors and/or solder. and of course tools to remove and install.

    Do you have a sat. radio? If so, get a nice custom bracket and hard wire it to the HU when you do the rest.

    My only comment is, are you sure that is the dash kit you want? There is another model out there (wish I could remember it but it slips my mind at this moment), still silver, but it looks to mount the HU more flush the to front of the dash, more like a factory look. I don't want to steer you away from your choice, just making sure you know there are other options available if you like.

    The other dash kit is made by Metra. It replicates the texture of the OEM radio/dash parts.

    ive got backup cam built into rear view mirror (2010)

    and as for the bumpy texture, i was never really sold on that, and i besides the kit, there isnt any other bumpy stuff for it to match up to so it should be okay.
