Aftermarket radio install in 2007 Silverado new body style

    I am having issues finding a switched power wire to install my in-dash dvd player without purchasing a $130 wiring harness. I would like to just tap a switched ignition wire, but have spent the past 2 days looking with no luck!

    Anyone know where in the truck I can find it? There is not a bose system in the truck.

    Thanks!

    I found a wiring harness that doesnt have the adapter box and just wires in the radio, but it doesnt have a spot for the switched ignition power wire that aftermarket radio decks need.
