    The early second generation Explorers had a "1.5" DIN in them, where the front was double, but sloped off in the back to asingle, but I am pretty sure it was changed by 2000, to accomodate large in-dash cd players.

    I have a FH-P404 DD in mine. Fits fine. I'll snap a few digital pics of it when I'm in this weekend.

    any modifications need to be done to get a DD to fit?
    (Crutchfield doesn't even show DIN-and-a-half to fit in the later-model Explorers)

    I know for sure that a din 1/2 will work. Have also seen pics on this site that show double din installations. Try and do a search.

    I have done a search on double din, but the only things I've found are 2 single dins.
    I just may do that, but not too sure yet...
