You have to mod the bezel to fit the double din, remove the center bar, i cant answer the plow question for ya though. Poole0 has a plow on his, check with him

Yes double din will fit. You just need to trim the lip on the top and bottom off of the radio bezel.
Get a install kit that will fit 2 single din radios. Remove the center bar and your ready to install.

Remove the center bar so it looks like the one behind it. can be bought here ==> http://cgi.ebay.com/MERCURY-MOUNTAIN...item5d24d02b7b

If he provides you with the manual installing and hooking the wires up should be a piece of cake.

If not you can always find the manual online.

Here is a list of the factory wire colors. ===> Radio wiring colors

I have a Pioneer AVIC-F700BT in my truck. I need to get a dash mount kit, but I have found the right one. It seems to fit in there nicely. Mine doesn't play DVD's but I have put movies on a flash drive and watch them that way. My only problem is it's not letting me enter in addresses in my GPS because the way either my friend by-passed the parking break didn't work, or wires just came loose. Any thoughts on that?

Not sure why you would want to watch something on that while your plowing! seems dangerous I guess you could just turn your head and look at it! lol

To watch video while truck is in gear you need a PAC TR-7 Video Bypass

It will fit perfectly with that dash kit shown above. I have the same Alpine deck shown above and just did mine yesterday. You will need to trim off the upper and lower lips of your factory bezel. The install kit locks onto the side lips so dont trim those. Its a bit of a pain and takes a little bit of time to do it right. Just set aside about 2 hours of your day and take your time and it will come out very very nice! I also used that PAC defeat module to.....not so I could watch videos while driving but more for ease of installation and not having to hack up my truck wiring by tapping in wires everywhere.

If he doesn't give you the video bypass, then get this: http://cgi.ebay.com/PIONEER-DVD-BRAK...item1e5d106924

I have this installed for my AVH-P3200DVD player from Pioneer and it works wonders without any problems whatsoever. Good luck! Post pictures when you get it installed.
