I'm trying my hardest to fit the Kenwood in there. It's not a money problem though. There is a steel beam running right to left behind the cubby. The single din conversion piece places the HU just above it, but a double din (ala Kendwoon DDX) looks like it will not clear it when mounted flush.

I'm going to try and build a mock-up and see if mounting the HU more horizontally will work. this will cause the screen not to be flush with the bezel in the off position, but when turned on, you should be able to adjust the screen tilt to compensate.

I just think the factory location, which has been done, is too low for a double din screen.
