They sell a double din kit. I know METRA makes one. That's the one I have. Just requires a little trimming of the lip on the dash around the radio. U will see when u install it. A dremel and sanding drum is all u need and the factory radio still goes back in with no problem.

I just recently installed a Kenwood DNX-9960 in my 02 F350. I had to remove the plastic piece that is between the top of the heater controls and the bottom of the radio. I used an air recriprocating saw to do it. I also had to bend the metal track that supports the bottom of the OEM radio down about 1/2". Its a super tight fit with the 9960 but I got it all in there and it looks super clean. Well worth the effort.

I do not understand why people cut up the dash and use the parts that come with the radio to install it. Metra and Scosche make a kit specifically to mount a double din in these year model trucks. With the kit you iso mount the radio on the dash with just a little trimming. No need for chopping up the bezel and when you wanna change no biggie. The oem radio even pops right back in without any hint of anything ever being done. Heres one on ebay but you can pick one up at any local shop I am sure.

I know it's been along time since this post, but do you have any pictures of the final look of it w/o that trim peice between the heater and radio.
