    The dock itself is $496. Makes you wonder if it includes the DC/AC convertor or does a straight DC. Being lockable and if it had the convertor, it would be worth it.

    Yikes! That's quite a price. It also looks much bigger than single din. I think I'd just buy two.

    I actually had spare sheet metal lying around so i made one, took about 1 hour. Used the mounting brackets of the stock radio. Nothing fancy though but it does the job really well.
