    The harness should be the same,however, is the dash the same as far as mounting it size wise?

    I say go for it! Not sure about the harness though. Wouldn't be hard to match up wires though.

    Just to clarify… the need to reprogram the radio for the right VIN has nothing to do with it having RDS or not. RDS is a signal broadcast from radio stations, which lets you see song/traffic/whatever info, being broadcast from that station. A lot only broadcast the station ID. However, on most all newer GM vehicles, the radio is integrated into the VATS/PassKey setup.
