Just bought an '06 King Cab Nismo with an aftermarket single DIN headunit installed. I'm going to be installing a double DIN unit, but need the original brackets.

I'm trying to get all this together this week.

I'd pay for the brackets, or if anyone wants to trade them, I've got the single DIN Kenwood KDC-MP3035 head unit, remote control, and SIR-KEN1 Sirius satellite radio module that I would trade for them.

I'm in Orange County, CA.

Thanks!

That's a crazy trade considering its $20 for both brackets at the dealership...

You don't need the brackets or an aftermarket install. They only work with a OME unit.

A metra kit comes with 2 plastic brackets that are used and the original metal ones are discarded.

You do need them if you're installing a double DIN aftermarket unit as I did.

It may be different for 08 models, but my 09 (bought late 2009, so it is basically an 2010) did not and could not use the original metal brackets for a double din HU.

The brackets are required for at least through '07. I bought them from west covina nissan (www.westcovinanissanparts.com) because they are cheaper than courtesyparts.com.
