My friend has that headunit in his 05' F-150 and it's soo sick. If I already had a nav I would've gotten that one.

Even with 2 day shipping you won't be paying that much. And get that wiring adapter on amazon, I just got mine in 3 days priority mail for 10 bucks.

But hey its your cash, if you want to pay more go for it. I'm just like getting the best deal possible lol

Both Metras and Scosche site will tell you. If it comes out to only like 20 more I'd order form Crutchfield but normally its like 75-100 more.

Yeah definitely you can. The harness coming from the radio is pretty universal so you just have to cut the Jensen part off and use the part that actually plugs into the stock wiring.

Exactly. Did you install it previously? Some places you take it too don't use wiring adapters and just cut off the stock plug and wire it straight to the radio harness. My truck was done like that before I got it and now it looks like a hack job back there.

i didn't wire it. had a friend do it though. and i had a kit from crutchfield. so the stock harness is still there luckily. lol

but i feel that if i was able to wirei n my OHC even though the wire colors on the writeup were completely different then the wire colors on my 07, i can wire up a freakin head unit haha

i was just always intimidated by how many wires there are

Naw stereos are easy, the wire colors of the 2 harnesses will even match. Did mine yesterday in 15 minutes with soldering and heat shrinking.

I'm not sure on the P series. On the AVICs all you had to do was move the mute wire a pin over and then ground it. I'll google it real quick.

There's usually a wire that disables video while moving, just ground that wire.

EDIT: I'm too slow

No, these units are different. This is how it needs to be done:

Quote:
just use a 5 wire relay. 86 and 87 to ground. 85 to remote and 30 to parking break input (lt. green wire)

you cant just ground the green wire. it needs a delay which they relay will provide.
