You could buy an humount . com mounting plate. I have a Kenwood 617DVD and with that mounting plate it doesn't stick out at all. They had to trim a little piece of plastic off inside the dash behind the deck so the head unit would slide back in all the way, but it looks great now.

I can actually get you pics of the mod you'll have to do. My dash is torn apart right now due to a wiring issue that I think I've now resolved. I'm almost done installing a Pioneer HU with the custom mount from HUmount.com so I'll take pics.
The free mounting kits from crutchfield work but thats about all you can say about them.... They're not a style choice by any means.

There is a piece of plastic behind the radio that needs to be cut to get the radio to sit flush. Look to see what plastic piece the aftermarlet radio hits and cut that piece.
