Hey i've started my boxing day shopping today and am piecing together my new system since I bought the bone stock truck.
I ended up getting a double din alpine touch screen deck but it does not fit in as I had already suspected knowing the stock deck is 1.5 din. Is it going to be easier and look better to purchase the factory double din bezel from dodge for $189 or carefully dremel the existing bezel to fit the new deck?
Anyone have suggestions for door speakers?

I'd go with the factory DD bezel.

Recommendations on speakers would be what sounds good to you. I put in a Hertz HSK 165 2-way component system in mine and I really like how they sound. But what sounds good to me may not sound good to you so go listen to some speakers and pick what you like.

hardly any trimming is required there is a thread i did in th knowledge section that shows you exactly what to trim.

the metal bracket on the ibside needs to have the top trimmed/bent up and the front panel needs to have a lip trimmed and rounded. do yourself the favor and save the miney on the bezel and buy a nice set of 6.5 components instead

I would suggest buying the factory DD bezel and making up some of the losses by selling the 1.5din bezel. Which dealership qouted you that price? I am in calgary, and I am about to purchase the same thing as well

Trim your dash insert & put the double din in

go to Installer.com or crutchfield.com
& get a bezel & anything else that you need to make it work for you
you won't be sorry
