Default Double DIN Nav stereo

I was just wondering what a good aftermarket unit is for the RAM. My GM truck had a huge hole in the dash and could actually put a 7" DD stereo in it with ease but my new 2011 (new to me) has the u-connect cd stereo in it but looks way too small for a 7" Kenwood DD.

Any sugestions ?

I have the Kenwood DNX690HD in mine. I think it's a 6.1" screen. I did have to trim up a few things to get it in but it does fit.

Here's a link to my thread on it with a few pictures: http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=142825

Pioneer AVS-X5500BHS Looks good in the Dash. I little modification to the inner dash is needed to make them fit nicely though.

On a 2011 no issues, use the Metra dash kit.

I had to do a little trimming on the plastic in order to get my Kenwood DNX690HD in and then cut the top of the metal bracket behind it off. Very simple to do though and totally worth it.

I also bought the adapter in order to keep my steering wheel controls, was that any challenge to any of you who've done it? And for the door speakers, are those as simple as unclipping from the stocks and putting my upgraded Rockford Fosgates? Im doing the entire truck, Kenwood DDX-470 double din head unit, (2)Rockford Fosgate 10" subs underneath the back seat, Rockford Fosgate Amp... and of course all 4 door speakers. Just waiting for em to show up from UPS/Fed Ex and then let the installation begin. This will be my first time so any helpful tips will be greatly appreciated.
