They were standard fitment on High Series. No issue at all, just need to buy a double din surround or mod your existing one.

You can pick up double din walnut surrounds for about $70 from eBay.
I'm sure all it would be, as SWC said, is the bracket and harness etc.
Not a big job.

I'll be doing it soon in mine,
I've got the walnut surround but only a single din stereo, so I want to fill it out.

Heres the Sony one I had in my old NF. It all bolts in the same as a single din, just use the correct surround as stated.
