I did a search and didnt find anything. Heres my questions is possible to make your own universal DIN Tool because all it really is wire u-shaped. Any suggestions for making own perhaps cloths hanger wire

I guess you are talking about removing a stock Ford HU?
If so, yes, a coat hanger bent int a "U" will work fine. Done it many times.

Make sure you wear safety glasses.

Thanks but what bout any other makes of car say a jeep cherokee

most Fords, some older porsches, some older VWs and audis use the din tool with the U-shape to it.

Most VWs from about 98+, mercedes, audis, and for the most part german cars use a tool that is flat and comes to a point with a notch before the end.

Most BMWs up until about 2002 use a key that is a 5 or 6 point (I can't remember) that looks like an allen wrench. I usually just use a 2.5mm allen to get it out.

Most other manufacturers do not use keys, rather the radio is removed by taking off the bezel in front, and removing screws that hold in the radio.

Carefully pry the panel around the radio off. Then, unscrew the 4 screws. Done.

sry for all the questions i just wanna save money instead of going to circuit ****** and get 99.99 and free install deal and get a better headunit
