Effects of a 2 Din install in AC and Heat

Just thinking about putting a double din in my 98 TJ and was wondering if the mod work you have to do to the duct work effects the AC and Heat in any way.

steev This looks great! I have a few questions...

When you said that you had to cut the sides of the brackets, I'm assuming you meant you had to narrow them down a bit? From the second to the third picture, the bracket looks like it's about half as wide.

Secondly, what did you use across the top of the radio? In the second picture, there are brackets just on the sides, but in the third picture there is also the piece across the top. Is there also a piece across the bottom? Kind of hard to tell.

And finally, did you have to space the radio in or out at all in order for it to stick through the dash bezel perfectly, or did the Metra brackets line it up pretty well?

Thanks for your help. I've installed a DD radio in my TJ, but I like the look of yours a little better and I'd like to give it a shot. Thanks in advance!

2006 TJ Double Din Install

Ok. After searching endlessly I came across the following post that was very helpful. After cutting the strip of plastic from underneath the factory radio, the double din slid in fairly easy. Using the 2007 Metra Brackets It installed into the factory screw holes. The lower bolts did not go through the moutning bracket but the bolt holds it snug on the top. You can use a screw with a washer head and that will work. Also, you will need to cut the side of the moutning bracket that fills in the factory bezel. You won't need this anymore and it will get in the way

So , After tearing apart my dash and 2 weeks worth of work, I am finally finished. I installed an Alpine INA-W910BT. Awesome radio with NAV. Also added the Alpine backup Camera.

Here are some of my own pics



Looks like a mess but it cleaned up real well. Nice and Neat.

Here is a pic of the rough install without the bezel.


Finally A pic of the bezel installed. I decided to paint the bezel the factory Tan color. Actually came out real good. Light was kinda a problem so Ill post some more pics later.


Also just installed Power windows and locks which are awesome. More pics to come.
