As far as running a LOC, I have heard too many people getting interference noise with them. That is why I am trying to use speaker level inputs. Yes I know it would be easier to splice in, but several years of technician experience tells me to never cut factory harnesses unless you absolutely have to....
Most run new speaker wires to the speakers from the amp.

I'm not sure what the plugs look like, but you could consider something like this:

In this pic you can see me holding the old style (red face) which would be the 5520. The other (black/white) connector is what our stereo's use and hopefully the 5524 is the same.

It is used for wiring an aftermarket HU to the factory wiring harness.

Been there done that as they say and it's still up in the air if they will work or not. I don't mind sacrificing $15 to find out.

Default Update

The wire connector 5524 is what we need, those of us with the 4.2" screen that is, now to order the other connector and make a harness for amp install without butchering the oem harness. YAHoooooooooo bout time, only been waiting a year.

What other connector do you need to order? The male connector that plugs into the factory radio? Can you order that from ford? I think I understand where you're going here. You're just making an extension that you can cut and splice without touching the factory wires, correct? Male connector at one end, female at the other, speaker wires in between?

I think that is what he wants to accomplish.

Correct

The connector shown is the male end that plugs into the factory radio, the other connector that is on it's way is the female part for the harness itself, which will then be spliced together along with the harness that came with the amp, once built it will be true plug-n-play so I can revert back to factory original should I need warranty work for the audio system.

It's also easier to solder wires at my kitchen table than inside the truck.

Did you order a 70-5524 for the harness side?
