    Question GM Truck Double-DIn Install ideas..

    Have any of you installed a TC into the dash of General Motors Double DIN
    dash? Here is what I have to work with. If you have done this already, I'd love to hear how you did it, or wished you had done it!

    Here is what I did. I put a 8" screen in my console instead of removing the radio.

    I'm getting ready to do what Nomad did in a '05 Tahoe. That position works well for me because the wife doesn't want to get a new head unit. But if your wanting to actually watch something and drive, which I wouldn't recommend , then you might want the TS in place of the stock HU.

    Here are a couple pics of an install on an 05 gmc. Using the bracket system that i have developed you can have the monitor in an easy to view area and keep all the factory electronics.
