fitting stereo into basic WT truck

Right i've just got my hands on a truck I have wanted for a long time. A standard cab WT trim LLY/LBZ truck with a ZF6 transmission.


Only thing I want to change on the truck is the basic cheap *** am/fm stereo so i can at least play my music off my phone

Looks like this





I can't seem to find any information on the wiring for the stereo like i did when i fitted a stereo to my old mans crewcab LBZ lt3. I just purchased the relevant adaptor harness and the axxess controller and good to go.


Any ideas or help would be great.

I would have to think it is the same for the worktruck. Does it have all the speakers? If not I would look in the speaker locations to make sure the wiring is there but otherwise I can't see any issues.

Here would be a good source to check. I looked at the LLY years and they don't list it by trim level but rather with power windows or without and with Onstar and without and so on.

First, find the radio you want, and then get the power specs it needs.


Second, decide if you want retained accessory power, and chime support (sounds when you leave the lights on, or the door open while drive, etc).


Then phone up crutchfield and ask them which wiring harnesses support that stuff. USB connections in particular require a bunch of power.

Just treat your truck as an '06 non-Bose equipped truck.
In your mind, just pretend you have the am/fm/cd when shopping, as the am/fm is 100% the same as the nonn-Bose am/fm/cd, wiring and adapter wise.

Android head is a good way to go. Then you can have gps I put a small camera inside the lift handle opening of the tailgate. I had to dremel out the dash opening so a double din would fit in there. As far a wiring goes its not a big deal. If you don't know whats where you can use a VOM to sort it out. For speakers if you are testing with the ohm meter you'll hear a scratchy sound coming out of the particular speaker that you ohm-out. I'd suggest disconnecting grounds from both batteries before pulling the dash out to avoid shorting out some wires while removing it. One of the nice things about going after market you don't have to have the chime signal wired up which is such an annoyance for me.

If you don't mind spending the bux there are lots of wiring harness adapters you can buy otherwise I just cut spliced soldered etc.

Not to hijack the thread but... on my 07 chev Kodiak , there was a component referred to by a mechanic as the sound board ( which he lost) , a printed circuit board which sat plugged inside the space above the stereo.
Does anyone know the part number? Iíve been to several stealerships which have no clue...
Any help for this clueless non geek electronics old fart would be nice.😇

I ordered a cage/bezel/ plug kit from the us and it's on it's way to me.


Currently enjoying listening to the truck at the moment.
