2019 crew cab stereo upgrade

Kicker KS 6x9
Ok i just did a major stereo upgrade but had to keep the factory head unit. The head unit is the weak point in the system. Is there anyone who makes a replacement but also keeps all the controls for the vehicle. Example: when remote is pushed does it blow the horn, when your door locks are to lock, other vehicle settings that are controlled by the factory head unit.
Here are a few pics of the install.

1. installed NOICO sound dampening to the inside of all 4 doors, floor and roof.
2. 6x9 and 6 inch Kicker KS speakers in all 4 doors.
3. Audio Control LC-6.1200 amp
4. Punch 10 inch sub.
5. installed Bass control knob into dash.
6. I also used a loop back harness to tap into the factory radio so not to cut any factory wires.

NOW just need a better head unit.... any suggestions ?

Main problem with factory radio is the Bass roll off at high volumes and just over all sound quality from it.

how did you deal with the chime and the incoming phone ringer being amplified to ear-splitting levels with the amp?

I turned down the gain on the amp to half, also the head unit also has a setting but it will only go down to half.

Yes it is. Another good reason to replace the head unit.
What we really need is to jailbreak the factory head unit. Kinda like they do iPhones. And fix all the issues.
