Just make sure whenyou hook that radio up the factory plug that goes into the radio doesn't have the switch power you need to turn the radio on. It does have the constant power just not the switch power. The plug and play harness you buy does not come with that lead. Your going to have to get power from the colum in order to have the radio work they way it's suppose to. Just make sure when your checking your wires that you use a volt meter and not a teast light because you can blow the air bag with a test light[/SIGPIC]07 Silverado LS factory 20's, spray in bedliner, in-bed cargo managment system, matching tint on front windows, K&N CAI, and Hypertech Max Engery Tuner and yet even more mods to come.

the dash is held with push in clips so it prety easy and an easy place to start is under the lil cubby hole next to the climate controlls there should be enough room for your fingers to fit underneath

The door chimes do come through the radio and it's kinda silly but you can turn the chimes up or down through a function on the factory radio, but I do know when one of the guys here tried to put in an aftermarket in our 2500hd the radio would not come on with the harness he got from the car stereo shop. Maybe Crutchfield found out where to get the switch power. I hope it works, let us know if they have found that hidden harness that you can get switch power from.
