I do not know about Rodeo's made before 1998, but for Rodeo's '98 and up the removal (and installation of an aftermarket) stereo is relatively simple. If you open the ashtray, you will see a screw in there. That is the only screw that holds the stereo frame in place. Once you have this screw out, if you give a tug the frame should pop right off. Next, remove the wires that connect to the cigarette lighter so that you can completely remove the frame. The stereo is held in the dash by 2 mounting brackets, each with 2 screws. Take out all 4 screws and the stock stereo should come right out. There will be a connecting pin that you will have to unplug to completely remove the unit.

Now, if you want to install an aftermarket stereo, you will probably have to purchase a storage pocket as well if you don't already have one. On your aftermarket stereo, you will NOT use the sleeve and faceplate frame that come with all aftermarket stereos. The opening is double DIN, so it will fit right in just as it is. You can use the factory mounting brackets to screw both the stereo and aftermarket sleeve together. Next, you will need an aftermarket connecting harness (I suggest finding one on eBay, much cheaper than Best Buy). On a flat surface, connect the wires from your aftermarket stereo to this wiring harness. Once you are done with that, you can connect that to the plug in the dash. Put all your screws back in place, reattach the frame, and you are done!
