Default Any update on 2013 dash kits?

I know when I first got my truck there were no double din dash kits available for the 2013 ram 1500's, just wondering if anybody found something new out yet. Its about to be July and the trucks have been out for awhile so by not I assume somebody has had to make one. I'm ready for my new project I just put in new seats and now I need to upgrade my radio from the 3.0 so I can install a backup camera and sound system

I have not read anything about anyone doing upgrades yet.

That being said, the RA1 3.0 radio,
does not allow you to make bluetooth calls
i don't believe that it connects up to the EVIC in any way
i don't even know if it even has radio controls on the steering wheel ??

if it connects to the new POWERNET Architecture at all, it may be just for a power source ???

That would make it just a normal radio & a prime candidate for an after market radio of the same dimensions

It can be done with the 3.0 radio. Seen a post with pics on the install I'll try and find it again. Just waiting for my head unit to come in and \i'm going to swap decks and adda backup cam as well.

looks like i'm going to go the route of that guy then. The uconnect 3.0 should be able to be replaced because it does nothing at all. It is possibly the worse radio ever put in a car. The dodge dart is 7K cheaper but has a touch screen and I get this baby back bull Shid
