    ^What Frankie G said for the harness and single din dash kit^

    Metra also makes a dash kit. There are subtle differences between the two that you may prefer one over the other. Check this link, post 147 & 153 for differences between the Scosche & Metra dash kits.

    If you're replacing your door speakers you'll need to buy adaptors or sometimes called speaker rings... Mr Marv & hookedontronics (TW members) sell these.

    As for a sub... I can't help you out as I have a DC but I did a quick search and there are several threads on small subs. (links below)

    I don't know if any of these will work for your application but it'll give you something to consider. Good luck!

    No problem. I got to looking at your gallery and noticed you have the black dash. I've seen some black dash kits on amazon but I can't remember which brand..? BTW, nice looking truck, you've done a good job with your mods.
