    I have a 2006 TRD Offroad double cab. I am looking to replace my radio. Do I have a single din or a double din? If I have a single din, can I go with a double din? Thanks.

    You can go with either. If you go with a single din, you'll end up with a little pocket under the head unit.

    This is what I have in my '05:

    You could replace your stock unit with either single or double din, but the factory unit is double din size. Check out Crutchfield.com and use the "what fits" feature. Their prices are higher than other places but they provide a lot of useful information.

    I second the Crutchfield comment. Expensive, but their customer service, and technical assistance is top notch.

    I bought my head unit from an Amazon retailer, but bought the steering wheel control harness from them, and had some wiring questions that were specific to our trucks, and they had the answers on hand. Called on a Saturday, and didn't have to wait on hold either. Top notch.

    I just bought a Pioneer HU from Crutchfield. They were cheaper than Best Buy and about the same as Amazon when I included the installation kit.The installation kit was free from Crutchfield and IIRC about 30 bucks from Amazon. I'm installing it next week, hopefully it goes smoothly

    if you go double din it gives you the option to install a back up cam, and if you have the right head unit, GPS. Yeah those are are both options with a single din with a slideout screen, but I always felt like those were too easy to break.
