All you need to buy is adapter harness to plug into the wiring and attach it to the harness for the radio you are buying. Any standard deck you buy will fit right it where the old one was with the sleeve put it.

I prefer Pioneer to Alpine, but to each their own. They are both well built.

Stereo size is 'single DIN' in our trucks. Just get the harness adapter and its pretty easy from there.

If you are gonna do it yourself, save some bucks. www.onlinecarstereo.com

I wouldn't go to best buy. I would go to a car audio only store. They have people who know what they are doing and talking about.

I bought my radio at best buy actually, but I hook all my stereo stuff up myself.
