It all started because backed into a concrete pylon that was short (below the tailgate) and out of my rear view mirror line of site. So I said to my self I will not repair or replace the bumper until i can get a back up camera installed.
Then it began..a new mirror cam? a factory touchscreen head unit? or a new aftermarket system.
I went the the aftermarket.
I also painted the a/c bezel on both sides in black and the entire center bezel black...(Flat Black).
parking brake bypass order and installed.
I reviewed many different post on this site for remove and other advise..so thank you all for that.
The pioneer has rear USB which is capable of charging your iphone and a rear aux input. I found this plug thing on ebay, which allowed me to install in the dash both inputs rather than leave the cable ends in the glove box or something.
I also ran into reception issues on both AM and FM. The adapters are notoriously horrible so i hacked the factory antenna and made a straight motorola plug and the reception issues were solved.
The camera is not yet installed as it did not come in on time (ebay!!!!). Also, coming is a single 10" sub and amp under the rear passenger side.
Here are some pics.
