    . They did send some cabled that I didn't need that were 20 bucks, I will return those. The instructions that came with it were very informative, and I actually called a couple times with some questions and they were awesome to talk to. Total cost was $435, before sending the cables back. If you can hold a screwdriver, you can do this install, I promise. I also would be happy to answer more questions if they arise. I will also look for my order and send it to you so you can see what I bought.

    Local shop said new head unit couldn't work with factory speakers and amp they were wrong, but I do believe that is the case with some years. What exactly do you have?

    Had to send in two messages due to length Sorry

    Hi Chief,

    I am so sorry I took so long to respond, I am newer to the forum and didn't realize I had a message lol. Ok as far as the install let me say I have a pretty good working knowledge of cars, and car stereos. Back in my younger days I worked in a garage, and at one time was a ASE cert mechanic. Now I barely turn a screwdriver and it was years since I touched a car radio. I was nervous. That being said the local shops A) lied to me about what HAD to be replaced and B) wanted $2300 to do it. After some research and an hour long online chat with a rep from Crutchfield I was confident I could accomplish this. On a 1-10 I would put the difficulty around a 5. There are additional pieces you need but they put the whole package together to include all tools needed.

    Came across your head unit upgrade and its exactly what I want to do. Can you tell how difficult or easy this is? Also, is there anything else I need to purchase beside the head unit.? Finally, are the instructions
    that come with the unit enough to get me thru the installation. Thanks - Mike
