removable face plate. i think its pretty much standard in aftermarket stereo. my ipod hook up runs from the back of the stereo and into the glove box. no cables running and you cant see my ipod. i would look into the lockable metal boxes that fit under the driver seat from bestop so you dont have to carry your ipod and stereo face around in your pockets when summer rolls around and youve got no top or doors.
I bet pulp fiction wasn't the first time Bruce Willis had a ball gag in his mouth.
I have a 6 speaker autostar sound bar that sounds amazing, 2 rockford's up front, 2 10" rockford fosgates in the back for a total of 10 speakers, love it! Def, go with a soundbar though that's for sure, it makes it surround sound!
