Default Installing an Aftermarket Head Unit on a 95 SE

I am planning on buying this head unit and i am just wondering what I am gonna need to install it.

Do i just need a mounting kit like one of these?

And does it matter which one of those i buy, is it okay to go with the cheaper one?
I'd love to get a nice one from humount.com but i dont have that kind of money :p

Thanks

I don't think your link works properly.
But generally, you just need a mounting kit that fills the Din-and-a-half mounting hole gaps around your Din-sized stereo.

I recently switched from an Aftermarket Pioneer Din-and-a-half sized head unit to a Din-sized head unit, and because I really do not like the big spacer all around a Din unit mount, I got a mounting kit that at least made use of some of that space for a little pocket that can hold a few CDs.

See it in my "after" pics in this thread:

why not just buy it from crutchfield. For 10 dollars more in price to you get their awsome customer service, they send you all the accessories (factory harness adaptor, mounting kit, antenna adaptor) needed to install the HU and instructions. Plus their support line for customers has amazing hours

As much as I hate to say it, for buying HU'* locally, I've really come to like Circuit City. Prices are pretty average, for retail, and the service at the one in Roseville is awesome. The car audio guys really know their stuff.

You might save a few bucks going mail order, but if you want to talk to someone face to face, check 'em out.

I got it from my local autosound installation company, but I'll call `em tomorrow and see what it is. It supposedly fits Chryslers, too.
