It has been done many times. Try searching on these and other forums. I would help you further but this is pretty common and you should have no problem finding what your looking for.

Unless you have dual climate control you won't be losing anything with the new dash kit. If you have the money, and don't have or care about dual climate control; you should get the full dash kit. I think it looks pretty stupid with the radio down in the little cubby, and you lose the best storage place in the car.

Also what is it you don't like about the stock headunit? You can always add AUX inputs, or an external amp for better quality, loudness, and you will lose that noise it makes.

Last thing, crutchfield has great service but their prices are the same as local retail stores. I recommend shopping around and find a better price before you buy something from there. I have always bought from other stores and never had any problems. Shopping around especially paid off when I found my 15" CVR Kickers for $100 a piece.

I wouldnt mind loosing look of dash or dual climate control if i was getting something bigger, like a 10.2 inch touch screen that was linked to a carputer that pretty much performed the same function as original carputer.
