Can it fit?
 
Hey there, I have a 2006 Jeep Cherokee without Nav. I want to put in an Alpine deck, but its a double din. Clearly the dash cover would never fit without construction. Just wondering if anyone has gone through the trouble of cutting out a new frame on the dash to fix a 6.5 inch touch screen. Also, my buddy let me take his Alpine deck just to see if it lined up with the mounts, it doesn't, its not wide enough. I imagine someone out there has done this project.

Thanks, Brian

clearly you havent looked into other oem options to help you with the HU.

a GC nav bezel its actually bigger than D-din. and it uses a metra adapter to make it d-din

so nav bezel like this: I imagine you could figure out if your interior is gray or khaki, it only came in 2 colors: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jeep-...Q5fAccessories


metra d-din adapter like this; http://www.amazon.com/Metra-95-6511-.../dp/B00133VQWE

im not recommeding you buy from these links they are just for reference, but you probably knew that already.

Ok, very cool. I had no idea that the dash with the Nav would actually fit in mine. I just didn't want to spend the money on a "guess". Thanks for the help.
