    I don't see any reason it wouldn't. I'm sure it won't be a slam dunk either, but it could be done with some minor fabricating to make it look good.

    keep in mind that the single DIN chassis is kept almost level so the lower you go in the dash kit, the more it will be recessed.

    That unit you are looking at has a single DIN chassis with an oversized faceplate. Big difference from a double DIN chassis mounting.

    Not saying it won't fit, it will. Just going to have to take your time to fab some stuff to make it work I think. Maybe I'm wrong, but don't see that just dropping in unless there is a specific kit to address the single DIN chassis and oversized faceplate.

    If you were installing on a flat panel, it'd be no problem at all, but the curve of the dash kinda dorks things up a bit.









    EDIT....my bad, you are putting this in an 03 which IS flat from what I remember. That should be no problem. Sorry, I had 2nd gen on my mind.
