Yes, it should slip right in, but I recommend you buy the adapter for the wiring harness. Look here for details and instructions are pasted below: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DEH1700/Pioneer-DEH-1700.html?tp=5684
1992-95 Models See Figure 4 Removing the radio will require removal of the front part of the center console. The
original equipment radio has a coded theft protection circuit. Before
beginning removal, be sure to know the code for re-installation. The
code is erased whenever the battery is disconnected or the No. 32 (7.5A)
fuse from the under hood fuse/relay box is removed. When power is
re-connected, the word "CODE" will be displayed and will require entry
of the 5-digit code for that particular unit.
All SRS wire harnesses are covered with a yellow insulation. Read
the SRS precautions found in this section and install the short
connectors as described.
Disable the SRS system as described in this section.
Remove the center instrument panel by removing the four philips screws on the top and sides.
Disconnect the 4-pin connector from the cigarette lighter.

Now to remove the stereo you will need to pop off the trim ***. just below the heater control switches. the the vents above the radio. remove four phillips screws and then pull stereo/ heater assembly from dash.
You are not in over your head. You just need to make sure you pay close attention to detail when connecting the wires.
First thing to do: Go to a place that installs car stereos and tell them you need the complete install kit including the wiring harness adaptor. Most all of these places will sell them to you. It is what they use to install the radio. They must know what type of car you are putting it in. Give the the mjake and model and year. They will then give you a bag full of plastic parts and another small bag with a wiring harness. MAKE SURE you get both. You really do need them. The plastic parts are for mounting the radio in the car properly. Without it, you will have something sloppy and it will not look right. It should have instructions. The kit will usually be able to be used for several different models of cars and any model of radio. You must pick which part is right for your car and radio. As I stated, it will have instructions.
Next, after you have the plastic mounting parts picked out for your radio, you will need the wiring harness for your radio and the wiring harness adaptor that you just purchased. The wiring is easy, just match the colors from the harness of your radio, to the same colors on the adaptor harness. Make sure that the wires are stripped properly and they are twisted together properly (or use small wire nuts or crimping type if connectors). Connect red wire to red wire, yellow wire to yellow wire, black wire to black wire, and son on until all wires are connected. Then for extra safety wrap each wire with some black electrical tape to ensure that if a pair if wires came loose somehow that they would not touch anything and short out causing the radio to need service.
Now you just plug the proper end of the harness into the radio and the other end into the harness in the car that the factory radio was plugged in to. Make sure to plug in the antenna as well. Make sure the cage that the radio is in is secure in the plastic mounting brackets you have purchased. Then the radio will go right into place and the bracket will screw in where the factory radio used to be screwed into.
If you need more help, just ask.
there are install kits that you can get that have a factory plug on the end that plug directly into your truck and the wires at the other end are color coded the same as the radio so then its a matter of matching colors and taping the wires together http://www.tune-town.com/wire/1973-87_Chevrolet_Blazer_(Full_Size)_NOVA7016771_CWB7116771.htm this one is for a 73-87 full size blazer but it also fits full size pickup you didnt say if your truck is full size or not .......if you have an s10 it is also available at that site hope this helps
