    Go to crutchfield.com. Its the best place to buy audio equipment online, and there you can put in your vehicle and it will tell you what will fit in your stock stereo space, and send any adapters necessary to make it fit.

    Same goes for speakers and anything else you want. They also sell custom subwoofer enclosures for specific vehicles.

    Everything is also shipped for free. Its an awesome website.

    Also, check out your local audio shops and see what they have to offer. Often times they will give you a better deal than online.

    There is not an after market head unit that is made that will "fit" the space that the stock unit fills, but 2 manufactures make trim kits that work great. Both fill the space nicely and allow most any aftermarket head unit to be installed. You got lots of choices. If you buy a new HU at Crutchfield they will include the trim kit.
