If you include wiring, an hour at most. Very simple install.

Most of them are setup like that but its easy to get around it. Normally it just takes putting the ebrake wire to a ground.

Not hard at all.. All you have to do is take a dremel to the top and bottom lips of the radio bezel. The double din dvd player wont fit in that slot unless you cut those lips down. then you take your install kit. I used the "Scosche install kit" Part number: FD1330B. You will have to use BIGGER length screws because the screws i got with my dvd player were too short. Found some longer ones laying around and they work great and its nice and sterdy.

Here's the Double Din Install kit. Notice there is a center peice on the trim peice. very carefully cut that peice out with a box cutter or something really sharp. Easy


Time to install the DVD player

Most of the time you just have to ground the ebrake wire.
