Question single DIN radio install?

So i am about to purchase a single DIN radio for my 2001 ranger and I know that I will have to get a wiring harness but is there a part that I can buy to fill in the space that will be there when I install my new single DIN radio?

thanks

ok got everything connected and it works! turns out the guy sold me the wrong wiring harness! Also just to make sure I connected the black ground wire to the ground wire on the radio harness and the just put it between and screw and some metal that is behind the radio.. that is ok right? also the wires that I didn't connect were the orange, orange/black, and black and white.. because the new radio harness did not have any of those wires.
