Just got the 996 in this weekend. I pulled the Spectra head out since I do more listening than talking nowadays. Same dash as the Silverado, Tahoe and Suburban, cut out the storage pocket, DIN size works nicely. For now, I'm just using the AM/FM splitter for the antenna, which I'm not thrilled with. I have overhead restrictions, so I can't put anything too tall unfortunately. I love this scanner, THANKS UNIDEN.
