What wiring harness from Scosche?

Ok I think it's time I upgraded my sound system. I have the stock CD6 stereo in a 2002 Ranger Edge Plus. It came that way from the factory. But what I want to know is what wiring harness do I need to get from Scosche to add a new head unit? Also I have the PATS system will that interfere with the new headunit? I'm also planning on upgrading the speakers to 6x8 Pioneer 3 way or 2 way units. Is there anything I should know before I buy them? Thanks everyone

i cant remember the part number, but you can check scosche's website and check. also whereever you go to buy it should be able to look it up. as far as the speakers, nothing specific you need to know, just 6x8

For the speakers 2 ways are better, but 3 ways are best. You will get a better frequency range than a 2 way.

you can only hear up to 20khz if you have perfect hearing anyway. why buy 500-way speakers that can reach to 35khz? Your best bet would be to go with a set of 2-way coaxial speakers with external crossovers, they will sound way better than 3-ways without a crossover.

Sorry, got carried away, and forgot this was about harnesses...

2 way, 3 way, round vs oval, just get a the best quality speaker that you can afford. Who cares if it's square and 4 way if it sounds the best?


Looks like FD16 on the scosche part number. (According to www.scosche.com)


Scosche also sells direct connect harnesses for most major aftermarket brands.

Like this one for Ford to alpine

I think Ford did a mid-year change on the wiring harness in 04 for the Ranger, so the best bet would be to grab the radio tools for $4 at Discount and check which you have. The black plug is the older style, the wider grey plug is the newer style. The plug on the driver's side of the radio is the important one, the other plugs (usually not used in a Ranger) are for Ford-specific options like external CD6, etc.

Yup.. those mid-year changes have gotten us in trouble before.. esp. when Ford's books don't list them correctly, and we order an upgrade by the book only to find it won't plug in!
