Stereo Install...Need Some Advice
I've been searching the forums here...both the Silverado thread and the audio section for a guide or information, but to no avail. I've also searched the internet quite a bit and can't seem to find much. Could anyone point me in the right direction to a guide/how-to for the removal of panels/dash of a 2009 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab?
I believe 07 or 08 would be the same. I'm just really not finding much information on how to take the panels off. I'm looking to replace all the speakers and put in an Alpine-IVA W200. Depending on how involved it is to get the truck apart...I may do it myself. But, if it's too big of a deal, likely look more into having someone do it at a store.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

you know, stereos manufacturers should be a good source of info. they got diagrams for everything.
honestly, most large stores, like Bestbuy, will install it for free with stereo purchase. and you have WARRANTY, baby. can't beat that.DON'T FIX IT IF IT AIN'T BROK. IF IT'S BROK - FIX RIGHT AWAY.
WONNA THINGS DONE RIGHT, DO THEM YOURSELF

Have you tried looking at www.crutchfield.com they use to have instructions on all kinds of vehicles. And they probably have a kit that you can buy that will be a perfect match to the hole that the factory radio is going to make.

Theres a write up on this.
Someone did a writeup on how to remove the door panels. Look in http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/for...ay.php?f=17747
Don't know how close it is to an '09. The writeup's for an '05.
Theres a whole forum devoted with tips and writeups.
