Guys have done it for sure...measure twice and cut once.

I have a double din DVD in dash sitting at home as Im waiting for spring before I dive into all that. Not sure on your year but mine (2004) is also a 1.5 din but is somewhat oval shape so there will be gaps on each side that will need filling in, to me that is going to be the biggest hassle. I know this is not your truck but it shows its doable.

that looks great!
my truck has a cup holder on top, 1.5 din radio, and ash tray lighter on bottom... looks like i would need to remove the ash tray and lighter to make it fit?

thats what it looks like to me too, and that would be plenty enough room for it to fit and would need to fill in some though. With it being flat also you may not be able to see the screen as well. I think in the new trucks with the nav the screen is angled so the driver can see without moving.
