That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.
There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.
I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.
Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.
Certain headunits be it factory and/or aftermarket have lock codes in them so in the event that someone were to steal your radio they would not be able to use it. Most of the factory unlock codes are in the vehicles owners manual. you can check there but if its not there you're going to have to go to the dealer to have it unlocked. Most of the time they will not and sometimes cannot give those codes out over the phone. Hope this helps...
Most new radios have wiring accessery kits, or a simple wiring harness kit. the colors match up to your new stereo, and offers a harness that clips into your factory harness. Or, you can look at the diagram to find out which wire is which, and find a wiring diagram for your factory harness and simply line the 2 up, cut off factory harness, and wire them directly.
Stereo dealers have wire harness adapters for almost every make and model of car. It will come with a connector both with color coded pigtails that are usually prestripped. The package will described which wires go where and their color codes. The deck you bought should have a pigtail with color coded wires and they'll match up to the ones on the harness adapter for your car. After connecting them all properly, you can take your deck with the attached pigtail and plug adapter and plug it directly into your car stereo plug where your old radio was connected...don't forget the anntenna lead as well... Not to difficult...email if you get stuck... KEN
that should be all you need. The adapters are called a dash kit with should fill the in the gaps of the factory stereo, and also you will need an aftermarker wiring harness to go from the factory plug out to your new head unit.
