It was pretty easy. Just need to trim bezel a little with a drimel to get it to fit

Here's a good website to check out.

I had it in my Ranger as well, install was easy. You just have to trim the lip on the back of the radio bezel opening and it slides right in.

In the Ranger I ran it out the third brake light and in the 150 I have it mounted in the middle of the dash all the up at the front. Works great in both places, dash is just easier to run.
