Radio wiring
Does anyone know what wires are what? Bc I tried hooking them up and the radio won't power.. The truck came with no radio installed.

Which on is chassis ground? Bc there's a black/red dot, black/pink, black/white..
Then I pulled door speakers.. The wires were black/red dot and black/white.. On both sides.
This was at the doors.
And there is no pink/green.. A pink/blue and black/pink.

as far as i know, there were 2 connectors for the radios. it depended on if you had the premium sound system with the rear speakers and optional factory installed sub. when i DC'ed my factory one, i ordered the spacer kit and it came with the wiring harness that you wire to the radio. it also had the optional connection for the rear channels if you wanted to run the wiring and install the speakers at a later date.

all the hardbodies should be the same as there is only one wiring kit for them.

Well the radio acts like it doesn't have power like my last one.. So I guess I'll have to wire it like my last truck.

For mine I used a self tapping screw to attach the ground from the radio to the frame in the dash.

Thank you guys.. Maybe I'll work on it later, so got it to where I can drag without rubbing rear tires!
