single DIN 7" w x 2" h
double DIN 7" w x 4" h
I'd opt for a fixed face double din.
Single DIN units, and even some doubles have the motorized screen that tucks and flips in/out. Making it seem too gadget-like IMO. And one more thing to get broken or have improper clearance for.

Post up a pic when you get a chance... looking for a double but if I find a single I like and for the right price I may go ahead with that, I can get the installation bracket to give me some more storage in the dash with the cubby.

If your budget allowed the Alpine Ixa-407 is a awesome one.

I think the Alpine looks better then any of the Pioneers I have seen in rangers. All the Pioneers stick out further. Mine is nice and flush with the bezel.
