Default 2001 Edge radio swap?'s

Hi, I'm a total newbie to radios but I just got a 2001 Edge with the 6 cd changer and my Montero has a stero with an aux port I'd like to put in the Edge. If I take the current stock stereo out it looks like it will be a huge hole compared to what is needed for the new stereo. Is there an aftermarket cover of some sort I need to get or am I just missing something? Thanks.
Jeremy

you can buy a plastic insert that will hold your other stereo plus give you a little cubby hole. you can get the insert at most auto stores.

Maybe I'm just not looking correctly, but iI have the 6 disc stereo and what I'm seeing just doesn't look like the right size to replace?

Cause stock radio is a double din style

One ur replacing is a single din so u will have the chubby hole as stated above.

No prob, and you can install it with the pocket up top or below I did below. I'll post a better pic tomorrow.

walmart or best buy should also have them in the car audio department. probably cheaper than crutchfield and will still work the same.

edit: you also know you need to get the harness adapter to plug into the stock harness and connect to the radio, right?

It's aftermarket and I'm not real sure what all this double/single din stuff means. Size wise it's pretty standard. Looks like the units in the pictures posted above. I'm thinking I nigh be hitting a car stereo place.
