Where is my VSS wire on my 1999 1/2 F250????? HELP PLEASE

Hey Guys (and gals) I just put in an aftermarket stereo in my 1999 1/2 F-250 (new body style) for the back up camera screen and GPS and I cant find my VSS wire to connect to the stereo for the GPS speed.I seen another thread for a stereo install on a 2000 F250 and his Grey/black VSS wire was behind the passenger side kicker panel, But my isnt there.I also know its pin 58 on the ECM or PCM (whatever you call it) but that bundle of wires is hard to get to and scares the hell out of me to start pulling on wires there and I'm not sure what color wire it is there either.My buddy also tells me that the VSS comes off the top of the rear but when I check the wire leaving the top of the rear there was two wires.If I remember correctly there was a orange and a green one not the grey/black wire I need.If I tap into the rear end wire which color is the VSS+ ? If anyone knows or can help I apperciate it.Thanks....

Bump for ya.

I installed a Kenwood dvd nav radio with a Back up camera i didn't have to tie into any vss wire and everything works perfect with no delays on the GPS. For the camera i had to tap into the reverse wire behind the tail light to activate the reverse camera when putting the truck into reverse.

Yea my backup camera works fine and the GPS does work but there are some options that arent working right without the VSS wire connected like MPG,etc.

Thanks "BryceB", Yes I did use your posts to help me install my pioneer and thank you for that,but my 1999.5 f250 doesnt have the VSS wire down behind the passenger kicker panel like yours.I looked High and Low yet nothings there as far as a VSS wire.I guess they changed things over a year or too.But Thank You again, your pics and posts from your install thread helped me greatly when I did my install a few months ago.I'm just stuck on finding this dam VSS wire for my year truck.
