Default Ranger 1850 RS & HDS 7 Touch

Looking to flush mount an HDS 7 Gen 2 Touch in the dash of my 1850 RS Ranger Reata and trying to confirm if there is enough room for it to fit. I called Ranger and their answer was "not sure". My local dealer was 75% sure it would fit. Thoughts?

Which year? In my '11 I'm pretty sure it won't fit. I have an HDS7 gen 1 in the dash and have a Touch 7 mounted next to it. The Gen 1 is basically side to side, almost like it was made for that dash. Pretty sure the Touch is a bit wider.

I have a 2009 which should have the same dash as your 2011 I believe. I talked to another dealer today and they claimed they have done it before. They sent pics of the cut out which is almost end to end (not with the actual unit mounted). Checking the dimensions of your HDS7 Gen 1 (8.78" wide by 6.45" tall) it is very close to the Gen 2 touch (8.44" wide by 5.76" tall) - actually the Gen 2 looks a smidge smaller.

You are correct. Not sure why I thought the touch was wider. Since that's the case, I'd say it would work.
