Radio Wiring for '11 - same as previous years?

I have a new alpine i just put in '99.5 but was gonna swap it out into an '11 XL that doesn't have a CD player.

Will the wire harness directly plug in to the new truck?

Will the dash kit work as well? It seems to be a double din dash kit.

No the 2011 has a 5800 style harness which uses CANBUS for the accessory power.

Yes, if your just looking to add a new radio (no steering wheel controls) then you can use the PAC C2R-FRD1 which will give you everything you need.

I'm reading that the XL doesn't have the BUS, even crutchfield doesn't mention it when you select "AM/FM Radio" vs. "AM/FM/CD Radio"

I ran into that problem when I installed mine, didn't know about the lack of a 12v signal lead until I had everything hooked up and it didn't work. I went to the stereo shop and they told me that I needed a 12v tap from something that came on with the key. I just ran a wire from the fuse box (maybe it was the upfitter switch fuse or amp fuse, don't remember). Also you have to use the antenna adapter from a chrysler. I have an XLT without the handy radio controls on the steering wheel so I didn't need any other adapters.

Hrm, as much as I hate to pay someone to do what I can do myself, maybe i'll let the stereo shop handle this.
