How do I know if a double din will fit?

I am looking to replace my stock h/u with Amazon.com: Clarion DUZ385SAT 2-DIN CD/MP3/WMA/AAC Receiver with Rear USB Port, XM Mini-Tuner Direct, Satellite Radio Ready: Electronics

Crutchfield said it wont fit, but they only show single dins....

Is there any way to make sure this fits before I order it? I really want the aux/usb ports

It'll fit, you have to trim the little lip on the back of the radio opening on the bottom.

Looks very nice! I would love a full screen one, but a little out of my price range!

Crutchfield tells you what will fit in the stock opening without modification. So technically it wont fit but you can make it fit.
