What to do, depends upon how much time and energy you want to spend. If you are patient and willing to to practically start from scratch, it can probably be done with any in dash stereo. If you are not patient, and don't want to be stripping wires and doing all this work above your head, then I would seriously consider a product that is as close to "drop in" as possible, such as that radio from Sloan Express. I opted to go the difficult way as I wanted to tackle it one particular weekend. I installed a Kenwood stereo systems in my 4640. This also necessitated replacing the speakers, too, as the speakers were bad, too. Cost me about $200 for the in dash radio/CD player and speakers. It took some time to make sense of what I had to work with in the wiring. I had to fish wires for speakers through the three holes I had in the header panel. I also had to make some shims to move the speakers further out from the headliner, as the magnets were sizable enough so that the speakers would not fit into their places in the headliner. Lastly, I had to use a table saw and dremel tool to carve out adequate space in the radio mount to fit the new in-dash system in and secure it. Is it perfect? No. Did I learn some lessons? Yes. Would I do it again, exactly the way that I did. I am not sure if I would or not. Perhaps after using a kit from Sloan Express, I would have a different opinion. I do know the speakers in the factory installation might be difficult to find replacements, as those speakers are some different than what I could find in an audio store where I purchased all of this.
