Best buy usually sells them. I got my harness and bracket for about 50 bucks when I installed mine.

But if you still cant find the harness, how about a little information on your truck? Year and model would help us point you in the correct direction.

Example, my truck is an 06 F250 XLT

Thanks for your replies

The problem I am having is finding a harness that's adapts a US iso to a European one as I live in England. As far as I can tell they are different.

The truck is an 04 F-350 lariat king ranch.

Have u tried crutchfield? For speakers you can always take a 9v battery (if available there) and scratch positive and negative and listen for the crackle of the speaker. Red should be constant blue should be "remote " and yellow/orange should be illumination. At least iirc

sent from everywhere...
