looking for headunit/ speaker advice

I currently have an 04 HD F250 and the stock sound system blows.

I want to replace the head unit with something nice, must have an AUX jack for MP3/Ipod. I would like a touch screen display as well.

Just wondering what everyone has been using.

I will almost def replace all 4 speakers at the same time. I dont really have an interest in huge bass so subs/amp arent needed if you can point me in the right direction for speakers.

who has what combo and how much $$$ was it.

Here are a couple of shots of what I did. For extra stability, I put the factory plastic mount guide (on the back of the head unit) on my JVC head unit and slid it on to the tab. I have installed stereos in the past that are only supported by the face plate and they ended up falling out.

Mine sits flush. Just the design of that particular model Im guessing. Or he didnt adjust the install kit correctly on the sides of the headunit ( It gives me multiple ways to make it fit as much install kits are "universal" to an extent. Sometimes you have to even cut tabs off.

YOu cna see the multiplre holes here

That is what screws to the headunit itself and sets its ( its being the headunit ) depth of mounting.


But Im guessing his is meant to be like that as it even looks bigger then the double din hole.
