    I just purchased an 02 Silverado 2500 and wanted to know the cheapest and simplest way I can hard wire my ipod. The head unit in the truck is simply an am/fm tuner with no CD or tape deck. Is there any way to do this with the head unit I have or do I need to look for a whole new head unit??

    Not sure about this question as it's a 2002. Probably have to go aftermarket head unit, unless you want to cut and splice the wires. There is probably an aftermarket wire adapter too that you might be able to find for use with a iPod.

    Ok this is my field,if you want to go stay cheap go with an FM transmitter only that sucks about those things is the reception,Or you can go to and i entered in your info and on the right you have all the kits they make for your truck that just plug in to your factory wiring i know when you see the prices your gonna be like whoa!! But its the best way to connect your ipod some of the adapters even let you control the ipod from your stock stereo.I have the transmitter and it sucks big time you have to play with the volume of the transmitter and your stereo and you have to deal with all the hissing from interference,I cant use the adapter cuz i have the stock CD player so i have to upgrade my stereo in order to hook my ipod up so that you best bet for sound quality and hookup no splicing.Just a note you can get this adapter off ebay for way cheaper just write down the number of the interface and go to ebay hope this helps
