Default Friend gave me jvc xs68 double din. Doesn't fit?

I've never had so much trouble installing a headunit in my life. I did search before some one jumps on me. However I saw, and read, I would need to dremel out the bezel a little. For those of you who have added a double din, how much did you dremel? I took out the entire top bottom and side lips and my hu harness still doesn't fit...

Any tips or advice? The headunit itself fits into the slow but not the metal harness. The stock radio no longer fits.. Am I busted? The harness appears larger than the entire slot. Is the ranger not a double din? I searched first and read double din size does fit.

I'll get pics up ASAP.

I'm thinking your using the metal part that came with the radio, if so you can't use that you'll have to buy an actual double din installation kit for our trucks

Whatever brand it is, yes, there are some at the walmart here. I'm not saying there is wherever you are.
