Default Stock radio

I have a stock radio and want to put in a stock ford radio with mp3 for my iPod the only one's I can find are the 6 cd changer ones. If I rip out my radio and put in the mp3 with 6 cd changer will it fit correctly and wire up easily?

thanks

I'm confused too. Do you mean AUX input or do you mean it reads MP3 CD's?

The installation is a one time thing, but you'll constantly be using your radio so I wouldn't limit yourself to a stock stereo because of that one reason alone.

If you just like the stock look consider checking out something like this: Cheap and clean double din installed

See I like the stock look and I dont use my stereo that much other than 4 presets and I want to be able to plug in an AUX so I can use my iPod. I dont use CD's that much I can find the 6 Cd changer and Mp3 stereo on ebay cheap but I just dont know if it will fit all the wires and be able to just fit directly into my dash or not. I dont have a problem controlling my iPod though my iPod its self

if the ones on ebay you are referring to say 6 disc mp3 that does not mean they are AUX/ipod compatible it just means they play mp3 cd's.

Why not modify the stock radio already in your truck to handle auxiliary

the only way this is possible is with an FM modulator. Do you have a trick up your sleeve we dont know about???

There is a way to bypass but still use the cd player to do it
I did it and it works
