I have a 2002 Mazda B2500.
It's basically the same as a Ford Ranger.

The Stock factory radio died.
It was Double DIN size.

I wish to replace the stock radio with a new Single DIN radio in the top slot of the bracket, and place a
TYT 7800 control head on a blank face on the bottom of the Double DIN Bracket.

I cannot find a Double DIN Bracket with on Single DIN hole on top and a blank face below.

All I can find are Double DIN brackets with a single DIN hole on top, and pockets below.

Can anyone point me to a website selling Double DIN brackets with a single DIN hole and a blank face below?

Check crutchfield.com

I've also had good results on EBay. Just shop the seller as much as the item. I stick with US buyers with plenty of sales and 100% (or close to it) feedback. The double din adapter in my F250 was found on EBay. It was very easy to make up a strong blank panel to mount a Garmin GPS and a XM tuner.

TU K4EET!

That will do the job.

So what I will do is install a Double DIN bracket with two open slots, mount my entertainmanet radio in the top slot, put this blank faceplate in the bottom slot, and mount my control head to the blank faceplate..

I knew this had to be found somewhere, I just couldn't find one.

Again TU

My 2002 F150 shipped with a 1.5 DIN radio (which was standard at the time) while Chevy was shipping their trucks and SUVs with double DIN radios. May want to double check on that.

My 1998 Toyota Camry has a double DIN with a pocket in the lower half. The control head for my TYT TH-7800 fits very snugly in the pocket. I only had to drill a small hole in the right lower corner of the pocket large enough for the extension cable to fit through.

The control head for CS800 fits nicely in the 'change pocket' just under the cig lighter and ashtray.
