I know it puts holes in the headliner, but I used self tapping screws and piloted the holes with the drill. You could probably make a bracket deal the screwed under the headliner. Let me draw something up and I'll post it to give ya an idea.

Basically take two pieces of like 1/8" strap, bend them super sharp at one end so they make a full 180, then pull the headliner back and self tap them into the false ceiling on the front of the cab, then just bolt you're radio bracket to the metal on the outside of your headliner... Make any sense?

Try that. The picture sucks @$$, but when I get home from class later I'll dig around some scrap and mock up some brackets for ya and take some pics in the truck maybe. Or hell maybe if I can find some 1/8 or 14g or something I'll just make em and mail em to ya !
