Default Single DIN vs. Double DIN on 2004 Ram

Anybody have any experience or know if there is a double DIN bezel available for purchase for a 04 model Ram? I'm interested in installing one of these multimedia/navigation from Clarion, VX400 with a NP400 just because I get almost 80% off retail as a employee discount with Hitachi

http://www.clarion.com/us/en/product...394334491.html

Anyone know if this can be done and if there is a quick n easy way to do it without fabricating an entire bracket out of fiberglass or something?

If you google theres a few guys that have custom made theirs, because at this moment no company makes a pre-fabbed install kit...If you have a rotary tool, you can just make your own, it really isn't hard. Soon when taxes come I will be installing a 2-Din and will post pics

By the way you can find that same unit on amazon for $299

I get all of my car audio from www.sonicelectronix.com. They have great prices, free and fast shipping on most items as well. On some items you buy, they will even send you all the accs you will need for your exact type of vehicle.

I just found the Clarion VX401 for $364.99

Let me know when you get it done! I wanna see!

Thanks for the site recommendations, especially installer.com. That was pretty neat.

Not sure what I'm gonna do, not to excited about taking a dremel to my dash yet. I'm holding off on the internal stuff now and going back to installing a new 6" suspension lift and some tires and rims.
