I installed my DVD/NAV unit in about 45 minutes. If your new pioneer is a double din, you'll have to trim the lip that's below the stereo to get it to fit.
The only thing is he has a DVD player, so it'll have a that they will "want" him to tap into the Parking Brake line. That wire is so that you can't watch DVDs or mess with the Navigation while the truck is moving. You're suppose to engage the brake and it'll let you mess with those to.
I can't remember how to do it, but I know you can probably hook it up to an accessory switch to bypass it. I think the new ones now you have to engage it, disengage it, and re engage it so that you can play movies. My friend just installed one in his 350Z.
