Baja 2000. thanks, I trimmed at least that much front top and bottom I really don't have much left to take it down to no lip. I did remove the screws but the face still won't function with the stereo set in properly I have to have it out 1/2 from the dash. I will order one of the kits you used and see if the side brackets will keep the unit at a different angle and allow face to move that might be my issue.

thanks

Did you use the side mounting plastic brackets from the install kit ? . I had to trim them so they did not put pressure on the sides of the head unit , it snap in much like factory unit . Feel free to PM your # if I can be of help

I didn't have any mounting bracket at all, I was just putting HU in place to check clearance and noticed the issue it is a really tight fit.

I will do thanks.

From what your are saying you are putting to much pressure on sides jamming the door mechanism !. It may be something be hide the dash plastic bezel jamming the door ?. I think all aftermarket DD head units same dimensions ?

Take those out and leave them out, or that dash trim and radio will be stuck there forever.
. Thank you very much for the heads up. I am waiting for a few more accessories to come in and then I am tackling a new head unit. I will be sure to take the two bolts out. I might remove the dash too like the OP described. Hadn't really thought of doing it that way before.

Real stereo install tips and how to instructions. Learn how Do It Your Self Bri modifies the dash of the Ford f350 to fit a double din radio. See it before and after get the tools needed for this project and how much it cost to complete. Does a double din radio really fit in a ford f250 or f350.
