Single DIN vs Double DIN

I'm thinking of replacing my OEM stereo with aftermarket. The OEM is basically a double DIN and to replace it with a single leaves a lot of unused space. Are there any kits that would convert that space to include a recessed area that could be used? If not, I think I'll just install another double DIN so it looks decent.

After market mounting kits will either block off the extra space or will create a basic cubby hole for you to use. Your choice.

The TJ OEM is a 1.5DIN much like other mopar products. There are actually 1.5 DIN aftermarket receivers that will fill the entire hole completely. Outside of that it's either have a single DIN with a cubby or plastic filling the space around the single DIN as already stated.

Crutchfield has some 1.5DIN receivers (at least they used to)
