    The Pioneer 4200 is a good choice. The unit by it self from http://www.sonicelectronix.com/ is only $379. I have purchased from them before and I am very happy with their service.

    Pioneer AVH-P4200DVD. It is a good start and you can add the Nav and Blue tooth as you get more money. My brotherinlaw is an installer for Best buy. He has has lots of people return the Headunits that have the Nav internal and he recomended that I add the Nav to the unit.

    I love it. It has all the goodies and a fantastic picture too. If you ahve an ipod or phone that you had blutooth capabilities, you can stream music straight to your truck through the head unit with no hard wire connection.

    Do you by chance have the JBL package on your 11'? If so does the sony work with the factory bluetooth and steering control buttons (using a PAC or similar) Thanks for your time.

    Sorry bad question, I was wondering if the bluetooth buttons could still be used to activate a new bluetooth capable head unit.

    I gotta say, the best place to order from is crutchfield. I don't think I've ever had better customer service.

    I would suggest the JVC KW-NT3HDT. I love this unit. It comes with all the bells and whistles (DVD, NAV, BLUETOOTH blah blah blah...) I have it in my truck and it is by far the best unit i have had. I am 100 percent satisfied.

    where do you guys get faceplates for this stuff? I don't ever do any stereo stuff, would the KW-NT3HDT be too hard to install myself? I can figure most things out but have heard some horror stories about this type of install.

    The hardest part of this install is stuffing all the wires back into the dash. The dash kit can be ordered from Crutchfield or from Scosche.

    +1 for the Sony. I have a similar unit, but without the nav. Great unit overall, just a wee bit slow at times.
