ok here is what i did. i have the exact setup you were asking about.
Vais Technology ipod/aux adapter(ebay <$100)
Modified oem amp with sub output(my.is member <$65)
Subwoofer and amp setup(cap optional)
4gauge rockford amp kit
piece of wood or plastic to make vanity cover for ipod
modified amp with rca output
you hook the vais unit to the cd changer port on the back of the stock radio. at that point your stock headunit acts the same, but if you hit Disc and extra time it flips to your ipod and you can either go simple mode(you control your ipod menu) or you go into advanced mode(your deck controlls yours ipod)
the next part is getting a good solid subwoofer output to your amp and sub combo. there are many who swear by the line converter that you hook to the low end side of your rear speakers. for me, i wanted a cleaner signal so i did some research and found a member that ads rca full frequency outputs to the stock amp. at that point i ran my 4gauge power wire and amp turn on lead down the drivers side. and i ran my rca signal line down the passenger side. my amp has a bass controll knob. so i ran the wires from the sub amp up the passenger side and into the area of the center console. i mounted the control onder my Trac Off button for easy control of the subwoofer level.
the last part is upto you. but i removed the center console top (where the ash tray is) i removed the ash tray area and under there was a 1/4" hole. i enlarged that hole just enough to fit the ipod dock connector through. i hooked up the ipod to it, and the ipod sits nicely down in that ash tray spot without blocking any heated seat buttons. i created a temporary vanity cover for the ipod to cover the gap left in the top of the console where the ask tray door would have been.
i get very clean sound out of this configuration.
