Sorry didn't get back to you. I couldn't check till today if I had them. I had my SD card go bad in my phone, and normally I have auto back up on but it was eating battery so I turned it off. Not much longer later the SD card went bad. The pictures I did take happen to be in that window of between last update and sd card taking!

But anyhow. What's inside the orange will be the Sat radio antenna. Unhook that. Now with that out, work on getting the plastic harness off the end of it. I actually think it clips right off so you do not have to break it off. So it could snap right back on! But once that plastic end is off it, you will be left with the round end that will/should plug into the back of your new radio. Mine was pretty loose so I had to kinda tape it to the back of the new radio. But it's been 3 months and its doing fine.

Take another pic so I can confirm that is it if you would like. I thought I remember the line being thicker but thats where it goes.

And Just FYI, that really thick orange line is the FM antenna.

Sounds good. And yes I know the thick orange is the fm antenna. But I think I have to order the sirius box.

What you referring to about getting the sirius box.

Since what you pictured is all you need for a factory radio. And aftermarket radio, the tuners are built in, just need an antenna.

I could be wrong with this. My truck had satellite radio stock and activated when I put in my touch screen. So if didn't have it first place, they may still install that same box but no sat radio ability?

Just remembered. There's a little black box that comes with a satellite radio kit for aftermarket radio! Sorry about that. Without this black box, cant get sat radio.

The antenna on the right you will not need (it'll come with the kit anyhow). Instead, the part I've been talking about will plug into this black tuner box. This avoids having tuck this wire all around the cab and get it to the roof, then having 2 sat radio antennas up there. Essentially, this takes place of the factory silver one you have pictured.
