Yea, it's not an explorer, but I wanted to share.

Here's what I installed:

Pioneer AVH-P5700DVD
Pioneer CD-IB100 iPod interface
Pioneer CD-R5 remote
Audiobahn A4002T amp (subs)
Audiobahn A4004T amp (door and back speakers)
Infinity Kappa 682.7 cf 6x8's (front)
Audiobahn AS68Q 6x8's (rear)
Custom fit sub box for Lightnings
2 10" Rockford Fosgate Stage 2 subs
Fatmat (still have some left to install)
Stinger digital positive battery terminal
4 gauge wiring

I've still got to install the Capacitor. It's a digital Audiobahn ACAP1, but I didn't know you have to put a charge to a cap before you hook it up, otherwise it won't work.

More pictures. I thought seeing the FatMat through the door would look tacky, but it actually looks pretty good. As for the wires, I'm waiting to install the cap and THEN I'm rerouting and concealing everything. I didn't see a point in doing it now if I was just going to pull it all back out and cut it

A few more. Pioneer got smart about people cutting the parking brake cables to bypass the safety feature of watching tv while driving, so now you HAVE to hook it up to make it work, BUT I had to install a toggle switch and switch it on and off to watch tv. It's a pain..

The CD-Ib100 works awesome on this tv. It's fast and everything is touchscreen. I only use my remote to turn the volume up and down and change songs.
 






the ipod adapter is sweet on the 5700's! looks good man, its hard to beleive the r5 is only $25 with all the crap it does! i like how it says pioneer on the ipod. what cover do you have on your nano?
 






Its not a Nano, it's a 20 GB 4th gen. I got the covers from boominxplorer a while back. They work pretty good at keeping it clean. I just sold my CD-RB10 to draft not too long ago.

haha, it looked a lot smaller in th pic. where did you mount the ib100 and have it coming out?
 






I mounted it behind a cover on my transmission hump and have the wire running up to the glove box. I made the pictures smaller, so that's why you can't see the size :D
