Need help finding radio AUX connector

I have a 2005 F350 6.0, and I've heard there is a connector in the back of the radio which, if I purchase the correct wiring harness, can add an AUX input to the radio. The radio has an AUX button so it's clearly set up to address an AUX input. I've even seen interface cables on Amazon which allow bluetooth streaming to the radio, which would be nice for long trips.

Does anyone have experience locating this connector and adding the interface cable? I've felt around a little back there and it seems pretty packed - does the radio need to be removed to get to this connector? Any tips on that? thx
Jeff

It plugs into a connector on the back of the radio. I have the PAC adapter Iíll sell you cheap to do it if you want. I upgraded to a pioneer radio a recently and donít need it (or the stock 6 disc radio)

Thx, might be interested... I'd first like to see how big a job it is to add the interface cable to the radio - if it's a big job, my wife will insist it be low down on my priority list, and I may have to defer the project. What can you tell me about getting to the back of the radio?

Radio removal is straight forward. You have to remove dash surround (there are several videos showing specifically how to do it) which snaps on/off. Radio is held in by 4 bolts then just slides forward. You plug in the adapter to the rear entertainment system connection, add a rca to phono plug outlet and reassemble.

Thanks, this is helpful. Question - what's that display I see in the picture? It's much cooler than the radio in my 2005 F-350. Are there aftermarket replacements for the stock radio? I'll have to check on that.

Thatís a android head unit. Plays torquepro on screen too. Personally, mine crapped out after two years and I replaced with a pioneer 2440nex which I love! Androids are as low as $200. The pioneer is $300 and does navigation, phone, etc using Apple CarPlay

I installed one of these over 2 years ago. Works great with my SirriusXM receiver.

Ok, ok, I pee'd on the toilet seat and glued the TV remote to the coffee table on my side of the couch. Can I have my man card back? :-)
