Default Is it a hard to install a new head unit in a newer (05) ranger with factory sub?

I have a 05 ranger fx4 level 2 with a factory sub in the consul. Am I lookin to run into problems installing an alpine (I think) head unit?
I'm wanting to swap my dads unit with my factory one with his 2000 excursion with a 8 month old unit. Assuming the adapter plugs I need will be in his truck. Just worried about the amp

With the proper wire adaptor, everything stays lined in
