    What is a quality cheap head unit?

    I recently got a 2001 ford Ranger with a stock head unit and stock everything else. I'm looking to upgrade to a higher powered unit with an auxillary port. What are some good units for under $100?

    None. Maybe buy one used out of the Classifieds here. Anything under a bill though is going to be garbage...

    JVC 's are good, also Look for pioneer and kenwood. 4 or 6 channel. And 4-6 volt RCA's if you plan to add an amp for cleaner sound.
