Super easy install. I spent about 1 hour total installing the headunit and maybe 5 minutes for the steering wheel interface.

I used a Metra install kit, Scosche harness and eventually a Metra Axxess steering wheel interface.

Also...the head unit that i used was shallow enough that there was no need for cutting vents or anything.

I'll update this thread with part numbers tomorrow.
