I can help with some of your question. I just installed a Kenwood DDX712 double din in my 2008. For the Sirius, you will need to buy an aftermarket Pioneer Sirius tuner for your new stereo. You can use the existing Sirius antenna by simply removing the yellow cap that Ford puts on the antenna. It will then slide onto the new tuner. As for the double or single din... I prefer the double Din. I think it looks weird having the single din with a cubby under it to fill up the other half. The cubby is not usually deep enough to serve any storage function and just takes up space (my opionion only
) I would go with the double din!
