Question about aftermarket double din stereo??

I am buying an Alpine double din navigation/stereo just wondering if you need an install kit. Also, are the Alpine's the same as the other double din as far as fitment?

Our trucks don't have a true double din. It's more like 1-1/2 so I don't think that will work

ya, me and a friend took a end grinder with a christmas tree on the end....if you know what im talkin about. just grind out some of the plastic piece and it will slide right in. had to get a install kit thingy from this radio place so it wouldnt move around. they said it would work. only used like 2 or 3 of the pieces it came with. but ended up real nice.
