i've been searching high and low but i couldnt find the answer. I've been looking for the best fit for a single din trim for an 02 rav, where can I purchase one? I understand that our double din is wider than the norm.. thanks for all the replies

BTW, brand spanking new here... great site!

I'm not familiar with the term "single din trim".........can you explain.....
Single Din just means that its the size of a normal dash receiver. Some cars like our rav4's are 2 units high which is refered to as double-din or 2-din. Ugh, i'm not good at explaining things. I hope you get what i mean.

reaganrav4: I'm glad you're looking for a cleaner look. Most people have just used the normal sized single din and used some sort of filler to complete the rest of the gap that doesn't get filled in by the short lengthed receiver.

thanks zoomie.....

another question. I have an 04 Toyota cd/mp3 player here infront of me(it has a silver face plate). It fits the Rav4 just fine but the only problem is that the background color is green.... does anyone know if its possible to change it?

I used the AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL TOYK975 single DIN bracket and the AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL TWH950 Harness adapter. Very sturdy bracket when you figure out how the various parts fit together. Remember to use the oblong plastic spacers that fit in the recessed locations at 4 points. They give you about 20 parts and you only use about 8 of them for the 2001-2005 RAV

I don't think they changed the opening size in 2005. It probably just looks like 1.5 din because they have mounted a single din radio and pocket in your Chili to house the mp3 radio. AFAIK, two single DIN radios can fit in a 2001-2005 ala Chim Chims website:
