Nope, not hard - just get a Ford wire harness adapter and a Ford radio mounting kit. Crimp or solder (and shrink wrap if soldering) the new radio wires to the wire installation kit in the house. Then remove factory radio, assemble the mount, insert radio into mount, click the wire harness together, insert radio mount - done. Shouldn't take long, only took me 10 minutes to do when I installed my JVC deck. It's a very straight forward job.

Will it be hard? Nah. Are you wasting your money? Yes I'd say so.

If you want that radio to last more than a year, and for your sound quality to actually improve, get a better model. Definitely do not buy any audio equipment from Wal-Mart lol. If you have to, go to best buy or something and pick out a good brand. They'll even install it for you.

And if you would rather install the stereo yourself, go to crutchfield.com and find a decent one that you like, and look for it for cheaper on ebay or amazon, or even buy it from crutchfield itself. They have wiring harnesses there and step-by-step guides on how to install the stereo.

Either way, best-buy or crutchfield are probably your best options.
