I orgianlly had hoped for a retractable flip screen on my R/T installation but decided against it for 2 reasons,

1. The flip screen will block both A/C ducts in the center dash.
2. The Double Din units are more fully featured with better features- at least in the Kenwood line.

I was considering rerouting the AC ducts to a lower position, but when I looked at the work involved I decided it wasn't worth it.

On my Chevy, I used a Kenwood flip screen, however I was able to mount it in a high dash position and the AC ducts weren't an issue, and the screen extends above the dash which I prefer as the screen is more easily viewed from the drivers line of sight without having to glance down.

I decided against the flip-down screen and went with a Kenwood DNX6140. Why? Because I've had too many flip-down, fold-out, twist-n-twirl gadgets screw up in my past and now try to have as few moving parts as possible. One stripped gear and your new head unit is inop., have you checked out the touch-screen units out there? Just my $0.02
