Conversion of the 1 1/2 din sized radio opening to the now standard double din.
The 2002 Avalanche was the only model that did not include the double din sized radio opening. Many changes were made after the 2002 model.
The Avalanche line was discontinued in 2013.
Adding a double din stereo is not a simple project but is well worth the time and effort
