Default Finished installing my AVH-P8400BH today

My Ram had the 130 without phone buttons. I first looked at my options for adding the uconnect so I could charge/control my ipod, which turned out to be pretty expensive. So I looked for a new HU and ended up buying the top of the line Pioneer without nav. .

Started to install my new P8400BH yesterday. I ended up having the wrong antenna adapter so I halfass threw the dash back together to drive to work today. After work, I went to pick up the proper adapter (and some much needed beer), and finished my install tonight.

My advise to putting a DDIN in your Ram? Take extra time trimming the opening and getting your radio to fit right, it's worth it. I've read that flipping the Metra mounts for either side works for some people. I had to do this at first, but after taking another look today and a little more trimming, I got the mounts on correctly and fitting perfect.

I'm loving the new HU so far. It's quite a step ahead of the DEH-P8600MP I had in my Dakota. The touchscreen is pretty responsive and easy to use, ipod integration rocks, has bluetooth phone capability, and can play video. I bypassed the parking brake video crap with a rocker switch and installed it in the tray in the front of the shifter console so it's hidden (I can get pics if anyone is interested).

Parts used:
Metra 40-EU10 antenna adapter
Metra 95-6511 dash kit
PAC RP4-CH11 wire harness and swc interface
Pioneer AVH-P8400BH head unit
Pioneer CD-MC20 auto eq mic
Pioneer CD-IU201S ipod/ipone adapter cable
Carquest rocker switch for bypass

Enough rambling, if anyone has questions, let me know. Also, I want to thank all the great members of this site for sharing their knowledge .

Bluetooth is nice, connects to my blackberry pretty quickly. I dont have an ipone so I dont have any experience with the appmode feature. I like the hands free calling. Sure beats holding the phone to your head cuz I'm lazy when it comes to that. Haven't had any problems in the few calls I've had yet.

I've been thinking about going with a new stereo since i got it. I have to ask why did you use the microphone instead of sticking with the factory location?
