Roady 2-Din

Has anybody every installed a double din in a 94-96 Roadmaster? I'm looking towards doing this in the future, and was curious what it might take.

Any input is appreciated.

The 1995-96 Roadmaster is double din.

I would like to do this also, but I heard you need to cut a bit to make it deeper... and there's a duct you need to avoid slashing...

FYI - the factory head unit the Roadmasters have the dimming circuitry for the HVAC controller, if you swap the stereo your climate control is full brightness day and night with no dimming - it drove me nuts.
