Re: 1997 S10 Radio Install

yeah... you have two choices that dash kit... or one of the flat mount ones which causes you to mod shit inside the dash so the stereo will fit

Re: 1997 S10 Radio Install

Metra's dash kit (99-3043) for those year trucks looks the same as the scoche kits that wally words sells .. IF you can find the correct one at wally world...

Cliff notes, if you do not have a tilt column be VERY VERY careful around the hazard switch or you will be replacing it .. (search for hazard switch replacement if yours is already broke , you dont have to spend $200+ to fix it.)

No haha , an the metra kit that I used for the 95 s10 that I didnt had been opened with no directions.. I thought about dropping the column but said fock it .. so I ended up having to get the replacement hazard switch (not the assembly). Beat I drop the column on the next one I do haha .

Re: 1997 S10 Radio Install

Best kit out there is a radio delete panel from the GM parts dept. Same color, texture and flush mount. You just have to cut the DIN hole in it and remove some of the plastic behind the unit so it sits flush.
