    I'm looking for a 2003 cage. You know where I can get one? Some junkyards have it, but don't want to sell it. They want to sell the whole dash as one piece.

    Re: 2001 Chevy Silverado Double Din Conversion

    so its been about a month with no bump and i have been super busy at work so i finally decided to get the project going again my previous box worked but not exactly how i wanted so it got broken down and my previous amp rack/false floor worked as well but i need to make changes it was getting a little warm down there on to the pics.


    some new additions to the setup


    almost there


    plans are to paint them black and carpet the false floor cutout around the screens


    Hot glue works...


    all wired up

    more to come in the next day or so should be all carpeted and amps back in and ready to go! I got another box of deadener for the headliner I will be tackling that tomorrow before the floor goes in.

    Re: 2001 Chevy Silverado Double Din Conversion

    nice false floor been thinking about doing somthing similar since my amps dont match and are not show quality(beat up). Do the fans have any leds or just black. Also are you running any type of temp sensor? That noise from the fans could be anoying in the cab at low volumes

    nope no LEDS in the fans just black I didn't want to get blinded by bright lights coming from behind my seats when i drive at night they look cool but I have a feeling i would get over it real quick. no temp sensor either I have a toggle switch wired in next to my voltage readout so I can operate them manually.

    Re: 2001 Chevy Silverado Double Din Conversion

    Hey guys I am new to this site but I thought that I would post something on my conversion. I read in a magazine about the conversion and decided to do it on my 99 GMC 1500. I went and got a dash out of a wrecked 05 chevy pickup along with an ash tray(I wanted to be able to return everything back to original if things didn't work out). I failed to grab the 05 stereo basket therefore I had to make things work with the original. I move the thermostat controls down by drilling new holes for the clips about 1/2 inch below stock. That solved that problem. A double din does not fit into the slot of the original stereo therefore i had to make additional cuts in the old stereo basket to accommodate the larger double din deck. I spent a lot of time on these cuts to ensure near perfection. Eventually i was able to slide the new deck directly into place, The deck snug enough to not have to do any kind of mounting. After all of this, I made all of the connections and slid everything into place and put the dash back on. I turned out good in my opinion, the only error that i find is that the new dash cuts off a little bit of the defrost emblem. Just for kicks i replaced all the stock components to ensure my self that everything I did was reversible if i wanted.
