Default Double din radio installation

Does anyone or can anyone post a video of them or someone installing a double din radio into the 97-03 model f150? I am buying one of these but I want to see if it is easy enough to Putin myself and being able to hook up my amp to it and everything?

I put in one of these radios in my truck. I have an 04 but it's old model. It fit in there without a mounting kit. I had to cut down by the ac switches. Then It fit just snug enough to not move at all. But it took me 4 hours to get it set just right like that. I'll get pictures when I get out of school

I'm also wondering about this, is there a kit to install a double din like a navigation? All I've seen are grinding installs.
