in '98 they didn't have the "world plug".....in '00 the "world plug" was started.....it is a somewhat universal radio plug put in numerous Ford vehicles.....you will have to get 2 harness and splice them together.....

one harness is the harness for your truck to install an aftermarket radio.......the other is a reverse harness for a '00 or newer.......this is how i got the '07 radio to work in my truck....

jamie, best thing to do is take your radio out, look at your plug and look at the socket on the 05+ radio see if they are the same
