Aftermarket stereo??

Is it possible for me to buy an after market radio for my 2012 SV frontier? i am tired of using this fm radio transmitter to listen to my ipod. Any help would be great.

Would best buy be the best place to go to have it done?

They might be ok just to install a HU, you could probably do it yourself though.

It used crutchfield.com to buy from and installed it myself. I have an '09 so I can't speak for the '12 but, if they are similar, it will be a breeze. Crutchfield will let you choose your vehicle and then browse stereos that fit. All of the stereos I looked at came with a free installation kit that included the plastic trim to fit the Frontier dash and wiring harnesses. Everyone of the wires color matched what the Frontier used so install was easy. The quality of the plastic trim piece was good, not great, but I was happy with the price and finished look. Given the trim is made by one of the two major trim companies, I am not sure Best Buy would have anything better. Crutchfield also includes printed instructions for removing the Frontier stereo and installing the new one. Plus, they provide FREE phone support. If you decide to use crutchfield, PM me and I can give you a code that should get you $20 off.

In the end it is up to you but I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Crutchfield and install it at home.

^^^ this is what I did, just be sure to get the correct harness, if you have the 6disk non rockford or the rockford fosgate HU its the same so you would probably have to choose the RF in options to get the correct one. If you have a single disk HU then choose non RF in options. The single disk uses a single harness, the 6disk uses a double harness. I am basing this off of a 2011 but I would imagine its the same for 2012.

No, I ordered the HU through crutchfield, It comes with the harness and dash kit for free. You would need the non rockford fosgate harness.
