Default stereo swap

i have a sony X-plode that i want to install in place of the stock stereo (because it has aux input). what do i need to do this? i also have a pair of 10" rockford fosgate subs that i'd like to install eventually. (i need to make room in my short cab first)
first off, what am i going to need to put in an aftermarket stereo? second, what can i do with the stock one when it's out?
thanks guys, sorry for the noob questions.

1. you need a dash install kit ( walmart) a adapter for the ford to sony interface ( unless you want to wire it in,

2. you can do whatever you want. shoot it, sell it, or just look at it.. up to you
