Swaping oem CD for oem 6 disc
#1
I have a oem Nissan Frontier 6 disc with aux option (non-RF) coming to replace the oem single disc in my 2007 KC. I didn't want to go after market since I have had too many Head units stolen over time and just wanted the 6 disc, and found a good deal.

Doing research, it appears I may have to replace the mounting brackets as the mounting points are slightly different from the single disc oem unit... is that correct? I was hoping for a slide in replacement.

Browsing the parts it seems the 'w/6 disc' unit brackets are divided into 05-06 and 07. Why is this? Is it a difference between the RF and standard 6 disc? Why would mounting be different, it looks like the same unit cabinet. What year brackets should I get? I have an 07, but the non-RF 6 disc was only offered in 05-06 I believe. So does that mean I get the 05-06 bracket?

Any help in clarifying would be great from anyone who knows or has done this swap.

As far as I know the brackets are the same from year to year, 08 might be different since they have a different antenna hook up. I would pm jerseyparts (Brian) he owns http://www.enissanparts.com

Hw would definetely be able to answer your question. Great guy to work with!

I didn't have a big selection of trucks when I bought mine....Never even thought about what the stereo was like, I actually thought it would come with the 6-Disc just like the Titan. It had everything else I wanted in a truck, except I did notice no stereo controls on the steering wheel.... 174

Hey, thanks. I found one for $120 new +shipping. They have them on eBay for $300 new a lot, but that's too much. Well, not if you consider dealer price is $834!

Yes, Brian use to be with a different website, I have heard a few members having trouble with the old website after Brian left.

Thanks. I have sent off a message to enissanparts.com. I inquired about the iPod adapter too.

Does anyone know if there any good, online nissan parts dealer located in Canada? I don't mind supporting members, but for some larger/more expensive items, it's easier not to deal with customs.
