Default new guy with radio replacement ?

Hi everyone! I have a 2001 chrome yellow ranger stepside (Orignial Owner) with the factory 6 cd changer. I want to replace the unit with a newer unit. Does anyone know what to do with extra height? Is there an aftermarket faceplate to cover the area?

Thanks

Chuck

Hello everyone
Thanks for all your post and information.
Walmart was out of the Dash Kit but since now I know want to look for I found one on Amazon.
I had this truck for 10 years and it has never been to the dealer for any repairs.
Love my truck.
