I thought when you bought a good one the install was included.
In any case thats one of those things I would not trust myself to do.

I have installed two Viper's in 7.3's it's not that hard, just time consuming. You will need a list of what wires are what under the dash.

Well I searched and searched to find one that had quality, but wouldn't break the bank. What I came up with was one from Audivox. I went to one our local stereo shops (actually the biggest) and they highly recommended one from Audiovox. Anyway, mine was $240 installed and it also has keyless entry...

I have an audiovox in mine. Came with it when I bought it. Works great.

This is a good link for those wishing to attempt on their own. http://www.the12volt.com/

Its impossible to hook it up to the wait to start light on a 2002 or later ford diesel. The dash cluster is controlled over the can network. You'll have to use a time delay setting. 15 seconds works fine for mine.
