I really want to install an aftermarket radio for Bluetooth and to play my phone however a quote I recieved from a local shop wants a ridiculous amount of money and I've looked up steps on how to do it and it seems simple except for the part where I'd have to solder the wiring harness? Why is there not a simple plug in for the new radio? Looking at getting a double din non touchscreen pioneer.

If you go thru Crutchfield it has the wiring harness that simply plugs in to the factory pigtail(s). they even allow you to enter the vehicle and it pulls up exact fit units

They should have wire harness for your truck... Its color coded so is easy to crimp the connectors

You Need the following:
-Wire Cripper
-Crimp Nuts
-Electrical Tape.

I originally installed a cam above the license plate, but hated the view. I switched out that mess for an oem tailgate handle cam. I didn't have the oem cam harness, so I bought a rearview a/v cable with trigger wire off of amazon and spliced it up. Works and looks great!

Do you have radio SWC (steering wheel controls)? If so, you will want to get Axxess ASWC-1 so you can retain them
