Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.
You will need a harness adapter for your model truck. This you will want to solder and heat shrink over the solder joints (Dont just twist tem together) then just plug it in to the factory harness.
You will probably need an adapter kit also.
The wiring harness adapter should come with the color codes for the wires corresponding to your trucks speaker and power wires pinouts make sure you correctly connect them to the color codes of the stereo for proper speaker placement and voltages
The car is not important .Connecting speakers to any unit is basically the same.
there should be a color coded wire harness connected to your head unit. The speakers are as such:
White & White with black stripe (Front Left)
Grey & Grey with black stripe (Front Right)
Green & Green with black stripe (Rear Left)
Purple & Purple with black stripe (Rear Right)
The Solid colors are (+) Positive and the Stripes are (-) Negative.
Connecting any one of these incorrectly will result in phasing problems.
Hope this helps.

Orange is for illumination and connects to the "dimmer" wire on your vehicle wiring. Yellow/Black is the mute lead and connects to your bluetooth or hardwired audio mute function. Blue/White (terminated with a quick disconnect) is the remote wire and provides a 12V positive turn-on signal for a power antenna or remote amplifier. Speaker wiring follows the industry standard color code:
White - left front +
White/Black left front -
Gray - right front +
Gray/Black - right front -
Green - left rear +
Green/Black left rear -
Violet - right rear +
Violet/Black - right rear -
If you do not have a copy of the installation/user manual, you can download a copy from Crutchfield. It will have the complete wiring diagram and color codes as well as operating instructions.
a 12v + source from the battery (yellow wire) a 12v + switched with the key (red wire) a Ground (black wire)
then you need your four speakers hooked up, i'm unsure of the color codes on them but they are usually pairs i.e. green and green with black stripe for one speaker white with black stripe for another etc.
other wires such as illumination (orange) and power antenna (blue) are optional
the illumination (orange) you would connect to 12v + from a headlight switch and it would cause the unit to dim when you turned your headlights on
The power antenna (blue) is used, as the name implies to control a power antenna if you have one, or more commonly as the signal to turn an audio amp on (on the remote connection)
u need the colors of the radio or the car wires.... here are the car wires and the radio are below that. I suggest however gettiing a wiring kit..They are around 8 dollars and well worth the money. It makes is so easy to connect a radio.

If you let me know your model number of the sub, vehicle make and model, and brand and model of headunit or CD player you have then i can provide wiring color codes, recommended wire routing locations, etc...
