Does anybody have any experience with Jensen radios? I'm looking at a VM9224 for my truck. I'm not sure if I can say that I found it at Crutchfield or not, so I won't say. Anyway, it comes with a rearview camera and all the mounting hardware for $300. Any ideas?

Great write up!!! I bought the Sony XAV-62BT And it came with the kit. I opened it up took out the factory radio. and Stopped. Couldn't believe that the whole Double din is held by two plastic looking cards that clip on the dash faceplate???? But this post answered all ?'s!!!! Thanks again!!!!!

Just what I needed to know to begin this project. The photos are great
and mostly tell the steps to get a double din in that dash.

However, what I don't see is how you actually mounted the radio in the
dash. Is it mounted to the removable dash nacelle and placed back in
the opening with it mounted? Or is the dash nacelle reinstalled after
making the wider opening and then the radio somehow pushed in from
the outside (like the factory unit does)?

Also, that big metal tab/horn sticking out from the pipe that was used
by the factory radio white plastic think that slipped over the tab, did you
cut that out or remove it in any way?

I am installing a Jensen V9424 which comes with a metal ring/box that
the radio slips into and several black surrounds to trim out with. I'm not
sure if I'll use the metal box, but maybe install that from behind the dash
and insert the radio, did you do anything like that?

Thanks for the hints at this job!

I don't have your answers, but am interested in seeing what the answers to each of your questions are since this will be a project I take on very soon in my truck.

My radio is mounted behind the dash and the dash piece fits over it - not like the OE mounting. I'll see if I can get a pic tomorow...

It wedges in there so tight that I didn't use the metal frame or any mounting hardware at all. I did install something in the back of the unit to prevent it from falling in too deep, but I can't remember what I used.

Got it installed one way or the other....

As Tugly says, the fit is fairly tight. So after grinding the plastic dash
nacelle open to its limit for the vertical fit (horz. is ok) I reinstalled the
dash. Next I found that metal horn thing sticking out from the the metal
pipe that is the console support was too high up and the radio hit it and
would not slide in all the way.

I used an 8" crescent wrench to bend the leading edge of the metal
horn down about 1/4" on the front only. This provided a ramp sort of
which the new radio hits and then goes up over. This makes a farily
tight fit and I don't think I'll do anything else to secure it in the hole.

I then was able to pull it back out a bit and snap the plastic nacelle
ring that came with the radio on and this closed up the ugly openings
all the way around as I see in your installation. You might try that to.
You should have gotten 2 different nacelle rings to use with the radio.

That's it and I"m done. I guess if I get on it with that big diesel 7.3L
a bit hard the radio might come popping out of the hole!!! I doubt that
would happen as it's no dragster.

Thanks for all the advice guys!

I know this is an older thread, but when I installed my Double Din head unit if I push it all the way in, the motorized face gets bound up and wont move. Do I need to take more from the upper and lower lips, or am I going to have to find a spacer to set the unit farther out from the dash.

Thanks for info

There is usually a threaded hole in the back of any stereo. I installed a bolt of the proper length and padded it to prevent wear/cutting of anything behind the dash.

There isn't any rubbing on the back, the motorized face wont tilt allowing access to the DVD slot if I push the unit all the way into the dash opening. I think the head unit needs more clearance up and down to tilt the screen out I just don't know If this is common problem or I need to trim more.

If you look at post #23 you will see the head unit I installed in my f-350 I also just install the same unit in my 2000 Excursion . The instal kit I used has side plastic brackets that hold it in. You need too trim the dash levying only about 1/16" inch all the way way around and most important the two screws on the top off the opening have to be be remove or the head unit not open and close properly Bill
