I just installed a double din in my 2001 extended cab. I have about 40 years automotive technology experience and have installed a lot of sound systems in a lot of vehicles but until the past couple of years a really good kit for the 98–2001 S series was not available. I used a Metra 95-3027 dash kit, a JVCKenwood short chassis multimedia head unit, a wiring adapter and an antenna adapter. I made a go between harness so I could just plug into the factory harness.
It was a slam dunk and looks good.

before I had a single din which was installed with a scoche kit and looked like this

I like the double din much better and have a lot of features that are like my new GMC.
the Metra 95-3027 dash kit is the least expensive way to install a double din. With a short chassis head unit you don’t have to cut the support in the dash. However you do not have a CD player with the short chassis units. This was not a problem for me as I have not played a CD in my truck in a couple of years. Much easier to use a USB drive or stream.

You can have a more factory look with the original double DIN bezel.

Looks good. Any info on how it was painted, and what with. I like this bezel but I’m not sure about the black.

Looks very good. I have a 2001 S10 and many parts from an Extreme (2003) that has the double DIN. HVAC control is in different spot, so would have to swap complete dash panels, A-pillar trim and door panels. UNLESS there is a double DIN that fits directly ?
