Double DIN dash bezel for 2008 Commander?

Hi Guys,

I'm thinking about geting the Eclipse AVN726E for my 2008 Commander and have an installation question. The factory bezel opening is 4"x8". Double DIN dimensions, and the dimensions of the Eclipse unit or any aftermarket double DIN NAV unit for that matter, are 4"x7". Does a factory bezel exist for standard double DIN opening or would I need to buy the cheesy Metra adapters (p/n 95-6511) found on their website http://www.metraonline.com/)? Thanks!

It seems the radio sizes changed for 2008 and later Commanders, so the bezel options available for '06 and '07 Commanders aren't applicable any more. Anyway, it looks like the only mounting options available for '08 and '09 Commanders are the spacers from Metra, Scosche, and American International that would go on either side of a double DIN unit.
