New Head Unit...Thoughts?

http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=IVA-W200

Think that'll fit in the Ranger? Crutchfield says no, but I'm thinking yes. I think I'm about to make good use of that Best Buy employee discount :-)

OMG that is expensive. Anything will fit with some duct tape lol.

You ever use fiberglass before? You could make a custom dash cover for the radio and stuff? Just a thought

I may be wrong (I forget these things after I researched what radio to get), but don't Rangers only have a din and a half radio?

your radio tray is not deep enough i dont think. get the deminsions and measure. i am pretty sure you will be doin some fiber glassin though. you will also have to trim some trim.

Rangers have like a 1 and 7/8 DIN radio, lol. It will fit, but you might have to do a little bit of custom work. If I can get one of these:

Into one of these:

And have it turn out like this:

You ought to be able to get that thing in there alright with a little bit of effort.

no fiberglassing needed. just a hand file and some time. use the radio cage and a backstrap so no one can easily steal it a nd bam. you have a double din in a ranger.
