it would be cheaper to do it in one with a factory radio because all of the wires are already ran, and not to mention, much easier for the same reason.

Well.. it is cheaper to get it the factory one.. you can junkyard them too.. But from my perspective it will be better to put an aftermarket one.. Autozone, O"Reilly's, Advanced Auto Parts.. they carry some decent stereos and the installation kits available.. spend a few bucks more and get yourself something better than the original...

Yeah but does the truck have speakers?? Installing a stereo in something that doesn't have it is a PITA. You've gotta run wires for everything and that's not the worst part. Do you know what kind of fuses to use?? and where they go?? You've going to have to install speakers also if it doesn't have any.
