Someone asked what you need to do an aftermarket HU install. I am not a pro, so understand that with this advice. Here is what I purchased:

  1. Head unit - (pioneer double-din AppRadio2 in my case)
  2. Metra dash kit 99-5823CH
  3. Antenna Adapter Motorola M to OEM antenna F
  4. PAC RapidPro steering wheel control and BUS adapter RP4-FD11
  5. (4) 12" RCA extensions (my installer didn't leave enough length on the wires from the amp to plug into the HU. YMMV
adding an amp:

  1. 5 channel amp
  2. amp wiring kit
  3. Speakers
  4. Sub
  5. custom box

Additionally, I purchased a back-up camera. The Pioneer AppRadio HU comes with a GPS antennae and microphone. I was pleased to learn after I installed the HU and PAC harness that the "next" and "prev" buttons on the Boss Steering wheel now work! They were not working with the OEM HU for some reason.
