        I don't know the stock head unit or dash in that truck. Sorry. However, now that people know the kind of car, they might be able to help.

              The DWW-6500 was designed to fit in the stock dual din without the need of any additional bracket/cage. It should be able to connect the same way your current stock radio is. Am I mistaken?

                you might be right, but, how does it hold in place then, the bracket/sleeve has those metal things that you can move outwards and they hold it in place, but 6500 doesnt have anything like this, it will just slide in and out.
                Do you have this unit?

                  The 1998 Explorer has a 1.5 DIN headunit.

                  That DWW-6500 won't fit without modification.

                    I installed the dww-6500 in my 2006 Chevy Silverado. I find it really hard to believe it is designed to install without the need of mount brackets. I needed them on mine, and every vehicle has a different way of mounting.

                    I checked Walmart and they only had the single din brackets so I went to the local car audio store and said "Hey! I need a dual din/double din mount bracket for a 06 Chevy Silverado pickup". It screws to the side of the dww-6500(screw holes line up nicely) and has flanges that attach to the dash. I don't know about your application but my pickup came stock with the dual din spot for the stereo.

                    I did have a problem making it fit though. The stupid thing was too long (deep). I ended up needing to modify the back of the slot (I didn't want to do any permenant modifications to anything, but there went that... oh, and don't tell anyone)

                      My '05 Civic has a cage where the stock radio went and the DWW-6500 fit perfectly (like the cage that hold hard drives).

                        I stand corrected. That's gotta be pretty nice not needing the extra parts. The only mount bracket I could find was plastic and the screws would slip through the holes if I got them too tight. I had to use tape as washers so they would stay in. I'm relieved to have that behind me.

                          what car do you have it installed in?
                          also, the mount brackets you used, what was the brand, can you send me a link to some image online. thanks

                              thats awesome, i wish i had that cage. this is why i need to find a double din sleeve that comes with most radios and systems and bondo or glue it to the bezel and then just insert the dww unit.
