custom stereo dash bezel

i have been wanting to replace my stock rockford fosgate stereo with an aftermaket stereo but still keep the controls for my factory nav but apparently you can just buy a dash like that with an open space for a stereo, it has to be custom made. my dash looks like the the attached pic. does anyone know where i can get it custom fabricated or know someone who will do a custom dash?

Re: custom stereo dash bezel

I would start with a local reputable stereo shop, one that has experience with custom work.

Perhaps I am mistaken, but can you not just buy the double din aftermarket bezels?

Re: custom stereo dash bezel

Trevor, you may not have understood his question...

He wants to keep the controls for the stock NAV that are obliterated by the bezel you showed... The stock controls are in the big opening of that aftermarket bezel...

He only wants to replace the CD changer slot and the volume/preset/tuning knobs just below it... not the NAV and truck computer buttons above the CD slot.

I'd have to agree with bbf... that's probably going to be a custom thing... I don't know of any that allow you to have that configuration.

EDIT: Didn't see BB post above me. I must learn to use the refresh option.

If you look at his face plate, there's an extra row of buttons at the top for the navigation system. None of the after market face plate has the opening for those buttons.

Re: custom stereo dash bezel

However, OP, you may not be able to have your wish easily....


The NAV and truck computer are all controlled through the R/F HU... Bypassing it is not easy, and replacing the unit would eliminate those features.

It has been done on other vehicles, but it's difficult.

Perhaps a reasonable option is to install a "hidden audio" HU in an auxiliary location with the remote controls... If you have or know someone with good wiring skills, you might be able to get the steering wheel controls to work with it.

Re: custom stereo dash bezel

Oh I see, sorry I was mistaken XD

A guy on TT did this apparently: "Correct. Aftermarket DVD also. But I still have full functional trip & hvac control. That was actually a lot of work to do. The Navi and radio switches are mounted on the same board. So the original board is still in the dash way in the back and I ran wires from each switch & l.e.d. up to the navi switches on the front panel that you see there. Took about a week to figure everything out."

That will have to be a custom job. I have not seen an aftermarket bezel with the nav buttons included as of yet. I only have the double din bezel in mine, no nav option so no issues. Keep us updated, I'm curious to see how this turns out.
