Double din install

Recommended Posts

I’ve been tossing around the idea of moding the dash for a double din head unit. Used to have one in my TJ and really enjoyed some of the features (especially a backup cam). Most of the pictures I saw involved moving the hvac controls down and deleting the center vent. However, as has been noted, the center vent is attached to the plenum and if I moved the hvac controls there it would not seal the plenum back up. I would also loose the center vent and I actually really like that vent. So instead I decided to move the hvac controls to the top and move the radio to the center. I plan on running a Sony CarPlay headunit like the ax1000 which has a single din frame but a double dine screen. I’ll post pics on how I will install this setup. I plan to retain the center vent as well but move it down about 1/2”. Should be a good clean oem looking mod when done.

Ok so here is an update. The conversion is ready to go. I must say, there is a lot of small things to mod but you can keep your hvac controls, center and install a double din unit. Here are some pics:

I also picked up some adhesive backed felt at Home Depot (yep we have one here on Guam!) for the vents. It works awesome and takes up and slack or flop in the vents

Following. This is looking great! I’ve been scratching my head how to fit a double din in mine.


Thanks! Just waiting on the equipment now for the install. Going to mount the backup cam to the tailgate if i can get it to look clean enough.
