    I have an 05 Silverado and I just bought a Pioneer AVIC-D3X head unit today and I want to get started on installing it, along with an amp, as soon as possible, but I'm not entirely sure how to go about taking apart the console and the door panels. Anyone know how?

    Thanks a lot man. I did a sound system like that in my buddies Colorado so hopefully it shouldn't be to hard with mine this time around. I was able to get the console apart and I got the stock head unit out, but the doors are giving me a pretty hard time and it looks like mine are different than the one in the link above

    I'm just gonna keep workin at it and hopefully it'll pop off relatively easy. Will do, I've heard a lot of good reviews on it. I can't wait till I get it installed. Do you have any other audio mods in your truck?

    yeah I have I believe a 1,800 watt amp to push mu 12" subs that are under the back seat and the rest of my spkrs are stock. It sounds pretty good. I also added the rear view camera that helps soooooo much It was $80 well spent

    I will probably will but not in the near future they actually sound pretty good believe or not. Ive always wanted to put some JBL's but maybe later on. The camera actually I bought it separately but I think any camera works they sale some at best buy for about 80 bucks and you can use it in the day time obviously and night time, its very clear

    I have no problem at all believing it. My truck only has one 12" sub and I think it sounds great for it being just that and everything else stock. But I see it as there's always room for improvement, so I plan on getting some CDT speakers once I have the funds for it. Sound's like a good deal. I'll be sure to look into that.
