    You will need a mounting plate for the cd player so it will fit in the middle of the console where you have the factory tape deck or cubby hole. there isnt enough depth there without it. you can get a wire harness for 9 bucks at walmart. it will make it much easier to get it.

    If you are hard wiring your system and running new wires from the head unit to your speakers, all you will need is the dash kit...

    Crutchfield has what you need...

    Gray

    Black

    Garnet Red

    Beige

    Dark Blue

    Cognac

    Plus if you had the 2 piece stereo, they have the filler piece for the dash where the stock head unit was...

    Default I Wouldn't do it

    If you don't know anything about stereo installation than I strongly recommend you have it installed by a specialty shop, with truck of lately you can fry a computer or "Pop" an Airbag easily.

    And if you still want to try to do it yourself just don't use a light bulb test light to check your wires!!! Only use a meter or properly rated test light that is computer/airbag safe. Or you could be in for a surprise!
    Good Luck!!

    Not in a 94, they don't have air-bags... And the computer is completely separate...

    well my dad is doing asll the wiring in it, i was just curious as if i needed a ned cover over the vents or if i just needed the mounting brackets to go in the cuby hole thats already there. Also i heard somethin was different with the antenna and that i might need a new adapter

    You'll need an antenna adapter, but they are only a couple of bucks...

    Default the vents

    the vents will be part of the new dash pice that you can get at walmart or best buy or any stereo shop i have had 3 94s and put stereos in all of them the stock stereo is plugged in near the gas pedal its a shinny box with three plugs and the intenna just take the entire box out its a waiste of space and buy the dash filler to remove the stock head unit it makes a great place to put you wallet wen your driving.
