Default Starmate Replay in 2005 Dodge Ram 2500

I'm trying to figure out where I should install my Starmate Replay in a 2005 2500 Ram. Has anybody installed one? The only place I can see is above the cupholders but it won't fit when you fold up the cupholders. Any suggestions?

Here's how I did mine on an '05 1500, I think the interior is the same as the 2500

I mounted it in the area around the trash bag hook.

Thanks, I was wondering what that hook was meant for; that's what I use it for. I have a red Dodge plastic bag for the trash bag.

Hi,

What's the best way to remove the bezel to expose the radio in the Dodge Ram?

I'd like to install an FM Modulator.

Thanks in advance...

Skivs, I wish I could help you but I would have to be in my truck to tell you how to do it. I do remember it was a pain in the butt when I did it a year ago and I promised myself I would never do it again. I used to be able to change out radios in a flash but I'm getting slow in my old age; not to mention my memory is going.

It's really not that difficult, there is 7mm hex screw right above the trash bag hook. Unscrew that, then open the glove box and start pulling in the lower right corner of the bezel, the little clips will start releasing, there is 8 of them in total. Then to remove the radio there are 4 more 7mm screws. There is a .pdf on this page that is instructions to install a mount, but they also show how to remove the bezel

My father has a 2004 2500 and I just installed his above his cupholder. He keeps them folded down all the time so we just velcroed the replay to the arm that holds the cupholder. I don't have a picture to post, sorry. I do have a question though. I want to know how I can hardwire his replay to his radio. As far as I know there is not an aux input except for a cd-changer. Is there some type of converter that would work? I would install a modulator and hardwire it into his antenna input but he is concerned about not having the sat radio in his truck and not being able to listen to terrestrial radio. I started a new thread about this but I saw this thread so I decided to hijack it.

Hello all,

Well, I finally got around to trying to install the "Wired FM Modulator Relay" in my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500...As per the instructions in this thread, the removal of the bezel was a snap & took all of about 30 seconds...

I removed the 4 screws holding the radio in place & then to my dismay, the antenna jack ( both male & female ) were totally different...

There was no way this switch was going to work with this radio & antenna combo...

If anyone has any other suggestions outside of replacing the radio & antenna, they would be most welcome.

BTW...The radio is a POS AM-FM with single CD Player...

Thanks for the help so far...

Dude, they have the special adapters at Best buy to fix that problem. I had the same problem in my 1500... I went WTF?!!!! Works great though once it is in....

I ended up drilling a hole just below the radio to mount my Starmate Replay. Kind of gets in the way of the thermostat, but I don't adjust it much. I have my MYFI attached above the trash hook, stuck, and drilled to the dash.
