Yeah buddy.

This is the first "nice" thing I've bought for a truck in a longgggg time.. if ever haha

Someone at work said the stock speakers have a lot of potential with a nice head unit.. I have no idea if what I got was what he intended but its a brand I can trust and it looks really clean.. I can tell a difference in the sound and it gets louder too. Eventually I'll get an amp and a 10" sub.. but this is all for now.

Its a Pioneer DEH-P5100UB.
MP3/AAC/WMA.. not blue tooth equipped but it is ready for it, i just need to buy a kit, also Sat/HD Radio ready.. pretty much standard on all the decks unless you're spending less than $100 it seemed like.

I think by far my favorite part is that i can leave the Ipod in the glove box.. charging, and scroll trough all the menus on the deck. That and its pretty plain/clean lookin, its not all bulky with a ton of buttons like the Alpine decks were. My only complaint is that its hard to push the spinny **** in while your driving w/o making it move side to side or up and down which changes the radio station but thats where the remote comes into play lol.

onto the pics.

he's got a burban, maybe its different.. I do notice like rap and stuff it distorts pretty bad but they handle country and rock pretty good.

what speakers would you recommend?

haha, my ranger came up when they asked if i wanted the extended warranty.. i turned to my friend and was like, "maybe if it was the ranger" haha, I'm gonna go get a Marnie head unit and speakers at some point so i don't need to keep the damn tarps over it all the time.

If your not really into huge sound quality some of the cheaper Pioneer 3 ways sound great on a aftermarket headunit.

You need to cut a hole in the windshield and mount the Bushmaster on the dash facing out the window!

Nice Unit man. I like how it lights up the neon blue. I have a Panasonic Deck that lights up similar.

I have some Pioneer 4-way speakers and they sound great. However, its hard to tell the difference between 3-ways and 4-ways. I just got the 4-ways because they were on sale.

It might have components from the factory. A tweeter and a mid so 2 speakers for each door. I dont' know anything about the chevy stereo systems though. You could also have a factory amp
