First post here... thinking about installing a double din with the metra bezel but I have a 5-speed with stock shifter. Will the head unit interfere with my shifter when I'm in 1, 3, or OD? From pictures of the bezel, it looks like the headunit protrudes out a bit... searched around the forum but couldn't find a picture or discussion on it. Any confirmation that it'll work and pics of an install on a 5-speed are appreciated!

Seemingly if your stick doesn’t hit radio now then it really shouldn’t hit it afterwards as long as you don’t put in DD that has a thick face/buttons

Sorry I should have been more specific. I'm asking for a 88-94 where the radio head unit is at a slant and when installing a double din, extends further down in the center area.

I believe it'll hit. My dually had the double din kit in it and it sticks out quite a bit.

Best bet would be a curved shifter.

Judging by that pic and owning a 1993 NV3500, it would be tight... but if it did interfere, you could give the shifter a little bend to bring it back a tad. Or better yet, throw a hurst short throw in it.

FancyTBI, yes it is... I just thought it would give the other guy an idea, what he was was in for..
The one thing the picture does NOT show is the amount of plastic that has to be removed to fit the DD head units...
RichLo I was going to say is core shifters.....
