I've seen threads where people have cut the dash piece to accommodate a double din radio, but it looks like crap. The best thing would be to get a dash bezel from an 03-06. I know this adds an extra expense, but the only other option that doesn't make it look bad is a flip out screen.

$370 for an adapter to mount a car stereo seems pricey to me. Especially when a 03-06 bezel can had for less than half of that ($160)

Im trying to do the same thing and yes 370 is crazy when you can buy a 03-06 bezel for much cheaper but i know you run into problems with the ac controls and where they end up and whatever other problems idk all of them i havent done the full research on it but i am wondering if the 02 ac harness is the same in the 03-06 and if the controls are interchangeable (In these trucks I doubt it but its worth asking if it can be done)

The 02 parts will not interchange with 03-06 trucks
Plus the data bus is different so the controls won't work between the 02 and 03-06 years
