I was on Crutchfield last night. They can tell you what will fit and all the stuff you will need. E-mail, call or chat with them. I would say receiver, harness, faceplate, antenna adapter and you might need an adapter to keep your steering wheel controls if you have them.

if you have the RDS radio, that is a doubledin unit so any double din will work (in theory). The kicker is depth Most doubledin units will be within a usable parameter but I have heard a back tab needing to be trimmed when changing radios in these cars.

I actually will be doing the doubledin conversion on my 2001 Jimmy this coming week as I only have the 1.5 slot.

Here are the things I have purchased to help:
-Metra 40-GM10 GM Antenna Adapter
-Metra 70-1858 Radio Wiring Harness For GM 88-05 Harness
-Metra 95-2001 Double DIN Installation Dash Kit for Select 1990-Up GM Vehicles
All can be found on Amazon

If you want to connect GM to ISO look for Autoleads PC2-82-4

I have a 2001 Blazer LS 2 Door that needs a new radio and speakers. Really want to put in a Double Din Radio.

The RDS radio is taller (double din) than the 1.5 din radios


I'm going to guess you have a 1.5 din radio in your Blazer. You can do the conversion but you will need a new bezel or be willing to cut your existing one. Along with other bits inside

Thank you for clarifing that. I Think you are correct about the radio in my Blazer. Will be doing some junk yard shopping this spring for other parts. Guess the bezel will be added to my list.


Thanks again.

Ebay also has them
