You might have to do some surgery on the plastic inside the dashboard. I had to trim off a bit of that plastic housing on the left side of the compartment to fit my old headunit with the RCAs attached to it.

Its a really tight fit. You got the right spot to tuck the wires. Idk what all wires you have but I've got the integration harness, relay harness to run video while car is moving, Rca's for the Sub, Rca's for the 4 speakers and it fits. Gotta tuck it all in that cubby. If you take the passenger's side trim piece off thats beside the ashtray, thats w/o a console so idk exactly if theres that same panel on there with the console.

yeah it is really tight fit I have a lot of cables back there including subwoofer outputs TV outputs x3 auxiliary input x2 backup camera parking brake bypass ( I'm probably forgetting some stuff too) and this is the tightest I could get it to fit and that's not even with the dash kit I don't know how I'm going to get 1 of those on here I might have to bring it somewhere and just make them to figure it out

That's a nice deck man. Looks like you need another inch or so. Don't take it somewhere they charge too much. If there's anything to the left of the glove box you can remove, you can get up there to that cubby from underneath and pull the wires. Can you post a pic of the back of your deck? There's a possibility the spot the RCAs are in interferes with the support back there. In that case you might have to do some trimming. For the deck in my gp I had to trim some of the plastic. Wasn't hard at all

Try measure from the back to where you want the front of the deck to be with the deck out. Then measure the deck with the RCAs plugged in. I'm almost betting the RCAs stick out too far. For my pioneer I had to kinda tilt the back up to get it to clear then it was good

Nope and I don't have the car anymore, so I can't help much. However, if you can take a photo of the area I can mark up what I ended up removing.
