Ya they are super easy to install. Just take your time taking the lip off the bezel. Take some off then test fit and repeat.

Kenwood DNX5120 I picked up from a guy. I also got a Kenwood XM rec., replaced the Sirius that came with the truck. Mostly listening to the thumb drive, loaded about 2000 songs. The nav is great...........
