Cool stuff man! That will look sweeet to have both your radio and dome light shining blue. I think that is one of the coolest colors you can put in a vehicle!

Yeah, the colorados, do have nice interiors, and good sized tires, but other than that, they don't have much going for them, since they are a chevy. haha! If he needed a smaller truck, he should have bought a Ranger! Each to his own I guess! haha!

I hear ya man! I'm not very good at this kind of thing either. Does your old headunit have a removable faceplate? If I remember right, mine had two little things that snapped in behind the faceplate. I can't remember if there were any screws holding it in from the sides or bottom, it's been a while since I messed with it! I see you posted a question about this in the audio tech section, so hopefully you'll get some much better help! Let me know how it turns out man!

well, it turned out great! I got the new head unit into my dash. Already had the wires set from my older xplod, and since i stuck in a nicer Xplod, i used the same wires. It turned on and all, I had to get it iinside my dash though which took some muscle,etc. haha. I did it though, BY MYSELF! =]
