There isn't enough room in my 95 without a lot of mods for a double DIN. Here's what my single looks like:

But I guess you did say '96 to '04 didn't ya? Oh well.

I wasn't aware you could even fit a double-din head unit in an stock astro dash opening. They are "din-and-half" size like tommckay's photo.

You could fit a double din into a newer Astro pretty easy

Here's some pics that i got from another post talking about double din
You could also modify the cup holder thing so your stereo components could set lower
I dont have a double din but my case that holds my stereo is about the same size as a DD and i mounted it to my ceiling

I played with the DD idea for my 97. There is just enough room to get it under the heater controls and you'd have to modify the trim panel. I decided against it for 2 reasons 1. The deck would sit nearly tight against the heater controls so it might get kinda hot from lack or air flow 2. Didn't see anything I really liked without going to a DVD player thingy, which I didn't want and they are expensive.
