Default Looking to upgrade my audio

I'm thinking of upgradeing my audio in my 06 Ram 1500. Currently I have the in-dash 6 disk changer, uConnect and audio controls on the stering wheel. The biggest problem I have with the system is that there is no Audio input or Ipod input on the Head unit.

I belive the stock system I have is what is call a 1.5 Din size; but I've read that most ppl here say to go with a double din. I'm not installing any sub in this truck (quad cab and I need the room in the back for the kids)

First where would I get a new bezel to fit a double din head unit?
Or stick with the 1.5 din units?

Please suggest some Units. I know this will differ with everyones personal taste and experances.
I'm looking for:
  • Ipod/Audio input (ipod controll not needed)
  • DVD player

Would be NIce!
  • Nav
  • Touch Screen
  • Work with wheel controls
  • Bluetooth or work with Uconnect.

Thanks!!

Kenwood DNX9960, DNX 9140 (these have NAV)

Alpine INA, IVA or IXA series (with or without NAV)

These are all double din units and that's what you have to go to for a DVD player. Most of them will handle Bluetooth communications and all of them, with an integration harness, will handle the iPod.

You'll also need some PacAudio adapter harnesses to preserve your use of the steering wheel controls and to interface with the CAN BUS system.

Bezels are available from any of the online authorized MOPAR parts sellers. I actually found one on eBay from an authorized MOPAR dealer.

You're welcome. There are a lot of others out there to look at. I just put up a few that I've looked at in preparation to do an audio upgrade to my SRT8.

If you do want a subwoofer you can get a subwoofer box for under the rear seat.
