Is my F250 double-din size?

Hey everyone, been looking at dvd/nav units for my truck(99 F250). Crutchfield says double din size don't fit. The local stereo shops say they will. Any of you guys have one in your truck with pics. Thanks

I think you will have to do some trimming behind the radio to make it fit. There is no kit available for it.

Black04lariat is correct. A double din unit will fit if you trim the 1/8" lip off the top and bottom of the stereo opening (just make it flush with the big opening). I bought a mount kit for a late 90's model explorer and used it. It takes a little modifying but it will work.

I think the 99 is the same size as the '03 which is a din and a half. If you get a single din you can buy the kit for the extra space.

I have seen work done where a double din fits, but it involves taking a saw to your truck.

99-04 Super Duties all have the same size radio, which as I mentioned before has a slightly smaller height than double din. It is fairly easy to make one fit. I did it in my 99, and others here have done it as well. I will see if I can find a picture of someone elses.

Here is Bucky440's unit installed.

I don't have any pics of my unit installed in my 99 anymore or I would post them.
