im not sure if i should order from crutch field or online car stereo. im looking to get the alpine 9855 but it cost less on online car stereo..the only thing im wurried about ordering from there is the warranty and the installation help. Please help

well, if the "cheaper" place is for sure a brand new unit, i wouldn't worry about the warranty. the warranty only lasts for a year, and i don't know ANYONE including myself that's ever had an alpine break within 2~3 years of ownership

doesnt crutchfield give you freee install kit and misc crap when you buy a deck from them?
right from the crutchfiled website

FREE mounting kit, wiring harness, and antenna adapter — save up to $65.
Buy a stereo priced at $129.99 and up, and get a FREE installation kit, wiring harness, and antenna adapter (if needed).* You'll save time and money on the installation, and it'll be easier to reinstall the factory radio if you sell your car. Add a receiver to your cart and see how much you'll save.
