Well, I cant help with something to go inplace of the stock radio, but you could always get one of those decks that are supposed to mount in the trunk and you have a control unit you can have in the front of the car for it without cutting, though Im not sure how you will secure it. My dad has one in his jeep and has it velcroed to the dash.

I would try an Audio Center near you, like Best-buy where they have an automotive section that lets you hear the products in the store.

There are many ways not to cut your dash.

And I've seen kits that allow you to install your head unit in your jockey box.

Good luck, and let us know how this comes out.

You can put any head unit you want in your glove box. They make adapter kits for din and 1.5 din I believe. Go ahead throw in that TOTL Alpine. Noone will ever know until you open your jockey box.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Custom Autosound. Just cheap stuff with a shiny face IMO. That's what I've seen around the shop. I've seen a few that just plain don't work within months, or years. I don't know if they've improved since then.
