    As long as you have a wiring harness for the truck that plugs into the factory connector, it's a simple job of matching wire colors. Now, getting the dash bezel off...that's a major b*tch. Every time I go to pull it off, I cringe and start thinking about whether I REALLY need to get whatever I needed to do done. However, once I figure out how to get the headlight switch off, it became easy, but tedious with all the screws. Good job on the install. That looks cleaner than my install, which install kit did you use?

    i got everything for the install from crutchfield.com thats the best place to get anything audio/video for a vehicle from. cutting out part of the dash to fit it was the hardest part. thanks for the compliment. lets see a pic of your install cause i bet it aint that bad

    OK, I finally got around to taking a few pics of the install in my Suburban. Mind you, this is an old POS radio that was in my first car, but it's better(barely) than the factory head... I know Md4x4's been asking me for these, so here they are.
