    Which radio option (EV, DV, or DZ) has the XM satellite radio receiver built into the radio unit. I do not want to have to buy an aftermarket receiver and put in the truck after I buy it. :eek:

    At Edmunds.com the DZ says it has the XM antenna and is prewired. That tells me you have to buy an aftermarket receiver and mount it inside the truck and just plug it in. But I don't want to mount an aftermarket receiver. DZ is $200

    The DV says it's XM satellite ready....what does this mean? Is the XM receiver built in to the radio unit? Would I have to get an aftermarket receiver and mount it with this unit? DV is $430

    The EV also says it's XM satellite ready so from this standpoint it seems like the same as the DV. The EV just adds a 6 disk changer and the DV doesn't have that. EV is $630

    So if I want the cheapest option that has the XM receiver built in the radio unit so I dont have to mount an aftermarket receiver which option would I choose?

    Thanks! :D

    Its about 300-400 for the XM receiver and the "fit" kit so it can be hooked up. I felt that was way too much and opted for the aftermarket plugged into the aux jack for now. Not sure which after market ones will hook up but good luck with your search

    Does the $300-$400 fit kit go behind the dash or is it something that is mounted and can been seen? I do not want an aftermarket receiver than can be seen and an FM modulator. I want it integrated into the unit.

    If I am not mistaken the receiver is mounted under the rear seat on the double cab next to the jack....then the fit kit is at the kick panel to connect everything up...its like a wiring harness from what I gather ......with this everything is concealed.
