If your truck is pre-wired for it then it would be a cake walk.

Some trucks came with the wiring behind the door panels already there.

Take your door panel off and see if you see a plug or view behind it. There is a good possibility that you are prewired since you are 4x4. I'm not wired :(

Ok I looked at my plug finally. It has 3 wires going into the door but the truck side of the plug has like 10 wires going into it? does this mean I am pre wired?
