Nah it looks different than that, if you search on here you'll find threads with the info on it. I used the Metra and I didn't really like it much at all, most people use the Scosche ones on here and they are much better looking than the Metra

I used the Scosche kit and the only thing I don't like about it is the trim ring. It doesn't fit right and it bows out in the middle because of that.

You had a double din on the 07?

I used the Scosche on my Ranger and Metra on the 150, they both worked fine.

What Pioneer unit you going with? Check out the Kenwood's too, after having the Pioneer for 2 years I didn't like it near as much as the Kenwood. Also iPhones work a heck of a lot better with the Kenwood's.

i wanted to go with a navi unit. even though i have a tom tom already i wanted them all integrated into one, but figured it'd be wiser if i just saved my money. so i think im going to go with this headunit.

I would spend a little more. Once you add on the navi to the P3200 its about the same price anyway. The interface on the X series are soooooo much nicer.
