    For $20 less I got a Pioneer HU, fit kit/dash surround, and steering wheel control converter from Crutchfield. I wouldn't risk it.

    crutchfield.com. Their customer service is the bomb and will help you find what you want. They also regularly have great sales.

    I have never heard of this brand, and while I'm by no means an audio expert, I personally wouldn't drop that kind of money on an unknown brand/model head unit.

    I've been buying from Crutchfield since the paper catalog days of the 1980s. They are not the cheapest, but their customer support is topnotch. They have Pioneer, JVC, Sony, Alpine, Kenwood and others.

    Another plug for Crutchfield. Bought a Pioneer AVH system for my old F350 from them back in 2016. Decided to move it to my son's Tacoma so he could have Apple Carplay.

    Called the folks at Crutchfield and they walked me through the installation and told me what to get even though they didn't have stock for the harness and bezel.

    I don't mind spending a couple extra bucks there to keep that customer service.

    For that kind of money your better off with name brand. As cheap stereos tend to have poor sound. I have a Alpine ilx-207. They can be found on eBay for like $350 area.

    Agree with the crutchfield recommendations. When buyers are lured to buying based mainly on price, you will end up buying twice due to the generic brands subpar output quality or failing in a short amount of time.
