Even though I am not a stereo person, I can't wait to see this write-up because I have always wondered what was involved in doing one. I actually NEED a replacement stereo in my S-10, because it is starting to die and 75% of my speakers are shot and it's just shot period. I hope you have room for the 6 disc changer in that dash, if it's the kind that goes behind the head unit then you are going to have some fun with the HVAC system.2004 Chevy Colorado

i just checked the ups tracking thing (i ordered standard shipping, isn't that supposed to be usps?) and it is in HODGKINS, IL, so i looked it up on google maps and entered from their to my house and it said it should take 1 day and 2 hours. i wish that was true...

Can't wait to see this write up. Are you getting all the bells and whistles like satellite raiod and ipod connector? I have my ipod connector in my glove comp. so I can keep my extra ipod in there. Currently have to pull head unit out to reseat the satellite radio wires though. It stopped working for some reason. Good luck.

the reciver has a built in usb port, so i plug an ipod cable into the usb port, and the head unit will control the ipod, i dont even own an ipod and i dont plan on installing satalite radio just yet

It happened to me before once... I was tracking my package and it was in LA and it was suppose to arrive next day, it never did. I go to track it and its in Nebraska because it got put on wrong truck or something.
