  • You really need the kit. The instructions that come with the kit should answer all your questions. This is one vehicle that you should research before you go in and start cutting wires. The stock amp is also the stock tuner in this vehicle; it's the real brain of the system. You'll never get anywhere trying to figure out the harness behind the head unit, because there aren't any speaker wires there. Buy the right parts, then do the installation. You can't do it backwards in this vehicle.
