    2004-2008 F-150 touchscreen size (and glare)

    I'm looking for a touchscreen that will fit in my 2005 F-150 (Same as the 2004-2008) but there are so many out there. I've searched, and read, and searched and read some more. The overall dimensions of the space I have are 7.5" x 4.25". It has an overall diag. dimension of 9". Are there any out there that don't have buttons on the front or will I have to custom build an enclosure to hide those?

    Thanks.

    i beleive that it is still a standard double din opening-- a bybyte frame, or the double din lcd sold in the mp3car store should work.

    Would it be possible to fit a 9" screen into that spot? It looks like most people are only putting in 7" but the space is 9" diag. Is it just preference or does it actually not fit?

    that really depends on the overall dimensions of the opening-- instead of measuring diagonal, measure height and width, and use those measurements to find a appropriate monitor (a 7" widescreen has different dimensions than a 7" standard monitor).

    as long as your radio is using iso standards, you should have a double din opening, and the biggest that you can fit without modifying anything would be a 7". if you chose to modify the dash, the sky is the limit (42" touch screen?...)

    Thanks soundman98, that's what I wanted to know, how big without modifying. The w x h dimensions are in the origional post. I was hoping I could cram in an 8 or 9".

    I'm not sure why all I see is squares at the end of your post but the dimensions of the space are in my first post: 7.5"L x 4.25"H x 9" diag.

    Looks good. What I'm really looking for is the biggest screen possible with no fab work. I've never done it before and I don't want to mess up my dash. If I have to, I'll get a spare one from the wreckers and play around with it before attacking mine. Looking OEM is most important, followed by no fab work so if I have to I will.

    minimal fab work will need to be done to make it look the most OEM.

    I understand what your saying though.
