if its a double din and your car wont accept it then no its not going to fit without some extensive modification to your dash. But I dont know much about those dashes. Maybe buck can chime in on this matter, I think he's got an exploder about that year.

Din is roughly 2" x 7 1/8", so a 3" height would equal a din and a half. I know you want it to be a double din, but the plain fact is, it isn't by your given measurements. You seem to keep asking, how do we know, WE KNOW! That's what you asked, sorry if it's not the answer you were hoping for.

Can one modify it, yea, possibly. My truck is a din and a half too, but I was able to modify mine to fit a double din.

Apparently you're trying to. Just go get a saws-all and start cutting. We'll stop helping now :laugh:
