Your harness would be different. You could however, get a harness adapter (for your current year from best buy), then cut a plug from the junk yard for the back of your new radio and make your own adapter. This way by the time you pull your dash apart to install it will be plug and play.

It's not that bad, takes maybe a few seconds longer than a home cd changer. I wasn't really thrilled to find out my truck came with it (figured it would just be one more thing to break) but once started using it, I love it!
