    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.

    the dash is held with push in clips so it prety easy and an easy place to start is under the lil cubby hole next to the climate controlls there should be enough room for your fingers to fit underneath
