F250 JL Audio install guide

Wanting to replace all speakers and amp in my F250. only thing that will remain will be the NAV/radio. I want to do it myself but it's been decades since I installed a stereo and I know that trucks nowadays are a bit more complicated. Are there any guides or install instructions our there that will make sure I don't fry something and hook it up correctly?

If you order your parts from crutchfield.com they always include very detailed instructions. Pictures and everything plus great technical support via phone.

Are their instructions vehicle specific. Like will it be instructions for an F-250?

Crutchfield will supply if available wiring harness adaptors, stereo mounting adaptors, and speaker mounting adaptors with purchases. The installation sheets supplied by them are written by their techs while they actually do an installation on a specific vehicle. Great company with great service, but you pay a little extra for it!

Door speakers are easy. Dig around on the internet for instructions on pulling the panels. Should be a piece of cake. Amps take a little more work, but still not hard. Directions are readily available and don't need to be vehicle specific. The trick will be making things work with your factory head unit. At minimum, you will need an adapter of some kind. Better option is to go with something like a JL Clean Sweep that will take your factory signal and make it much more like the signal quality of an aftermarket head unit, and will give you RCA outputs to run to your amp(s). Best option is a new head unit. That's the most important part of a system, imo, and what I would do first.

Decided to save a little money for now. I have an amp and a 10" sub from my previous truck and think I will just install them for now. May have to buy a new box. How would I hook up this amp to the factory head unit?

Basically just need to know which wire from the stock head-unit is the remote wire.
