above your heater control panel you'll find 2 screws take them out and the whole radio surround will just pull off then you should find a factory wire harness if it's there..

You may end up having to run all new speaker wire. In my old truck, it had no radio or speakers from the factory. I found the wiring connector in the dash behind the radio bezel, but could not find the wires that went to the doors or the rear speakers. I ended up just running my own wire.

There should still be the little rubber tubes going to the doors I'd imagine? You should be able to pull right through there. Then use a combonation of zip-ties and electrical tape to run it through. should be pretty simple, at this level of sound you don't need to worry about distortion/noise creation be attatching it to panels.

I pretty much took off every easy to remove dash piece and ran the wires through the dash to the doors, and put the wires through the little rubber thing between the door and cab to protect the wires. That was the biggest pain of the whole project. For the rear speakers, I just got a piece of mechanics wire/ coat hanger and fed that under the carpet and then taped the speaker wire to it to bring it back through underneath the carpet. I went from the center of the dash down to the carpet and then under the seat.

I would tell you exactly how I did it and what panels I took off, but my old truck was a 96 with the newer interior and yours is the older style interior that I have never had apart.

I don't know if your truck has them, but mine had a big rubber hose thing right where the door swivels that runs from the cab to the door that would normally have the power windows, locks, mirrors, etc. I really don't know how to explain it well.

Yeh, I had two speakers in the corners behind the cab. This truck was my first ranger and it was a regular cab. It is not the one that is currently my avatar. But I ran the wire for the rear speakers under the carpet/ rubber floor right down the middle on the center hump and then took it to both sides. I did this by feeding a piece of metal wire under the floor from behind the seat alway the way up to the front below the ashtray and up to the radio.
