If you are interested I can sell you my JVC-sh9750 in great condition and still has the celica wiring harness attached. If you own a gt you can just plug it in. Crutchfield was selling them for around $450 when they first came out, I can give you a good price. Comes with everything including box, you can even load your own pics on the screen. Let me know. Also click my sig. for pics and why I no longer need it.
I do not need a really good HU in general. Just a really good one for that price tag. As long as I can play CD-RW then I am good to go.
I really do not want her to spend a lot on me. I was not going to let her do this, but I feel a lot better now since I am paying for her newly build computer. Also, I can't refuse her offer because it makes her feel as if she cannot afford me stuff for my car. And this will be the first thing she will ever purchase for my car, something nice.
Some HUs that i found... -Alpine CDA-9827 CDRW/MP3/XM Ready $210.00 -Pioneer Premier DEH-P560MP MP3/CDRW $175.00 -Pioneer DEH-P4600MP CD-RW MP3 CD Player XM Ready $135.00 -Pioneer DEH-P7600MP CD-RW CD MP3 PLAYER XM READY $215.00

If your amp is already hooked up you dont need anything. You might need to run some rcas from the headunit to the amp if you are currently using speaker level inputs (used when hooking up amp to factory head unit). As for crutchfield it depends how much cheaper you can get the deck on ebay. If their isn't much of a difference it would be best to get it off crutchfield since you get the warrenty and install kit.
The install kit that comes when purchasing from crutchfield, it comes with the wiring harness right?
Also, my setup right now, is that the stock head unit is attached to an inverter which then runs back to the trunk to hook up into the Fosgate Amp. Does this mean that I would have to run a new set of RCA cable from the back trunk (Amp) to the new aftermarket HU, or can I get an RCA extension or something to go from the glove compartment to the aftermarket HU?
I got the METRA 99-8201 TOYOTA CELICA/ECHO 2000 DASH KIT because it had a larger CD Pocket. But I had trouble installing my eclipse because when the face opened it hit against the dash kit. I had to aim it down a bit to get the unit of open and close correctly. The main difference is one uses the stereo face trim (muli) because the face sticks out a bit from the dash kit. The other one doesn't use the face trim because it sits flushly inside the dash kit.
