Perfect F.I.T. Installation Packages: The Alpine in-dash
navigation receivers with an 8" LCD touchscreen will not fit a standard
Single-DIN or Double-DIN dash opening. To accommodate this large screen in your
vehicle's dash, Alpine offers a line of Perfect Factory Integration Technology (F.I.T.)
packages specifically for these receivers. Alpine's Perfect F.I.T. installation
packages allow the Alpine navigation receiver with 8" LCD touchscreen to fit
seamlessly into select vehicle dashes. Perfect F.I.T. is designed to
cosmetically match the shape, color and texture of the vehicle's interior.
Compatibility: The Alpine KTX-GM8K2 Perfect F.I.T.
installation package allows seamless integration of the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen
navigation head unit in select 2014-up GM trucks (non-Bose systems
only). As always, please consult Crutchfield's
Outfit My Car to verify fit and installation accessories for your vehicle.
OEM-Like Appearance: The KTX-GM8K2 Perfect F.I.T.
installation package has been specifically fitted and engineered to fit select
2014-up GM trucks perfectly. It comes with a specially formed OEM-grade, high
quality/high strength ABS plastic radio housing that is color matched to the
dash. This allows the unit to precisely fit not only the vehicle, but also the
Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver. In addition, extra care is taken to match
the factory dash's shape, texture, and color ensuring a more OEM-like
appearance. Unlike traditional universal dash kits, the Alpine Perfect F.I.T.
packages include direct fit OEM-like brackets to ensure sturdy support and
accurate positioning of the radio in your vehicle's dash.
Retained Factory Features: The included radio replacement
interface module (KCX-SRMGM2) allows you to retain factory features such as
OnStar, steering wheel control, Aux input, and warning chimes (external chime
module included). The interface module also provides data bus driven outputs
such as retained accessory power (RAP), vehicle speed sensor (VSS),
illumination, reverse trigger, parking brake, and foot brake.
Vehicle+Radio Harness: This Perfect F.I.T. Installation
Package comes with a GM radio replacement module, radio harness, and vehicle
harness for simple installation between the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation
receiver and your 20014-up
GM truck. You get all the necessary harnesses and adapters in the box to install
the Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen navigation receiver in your 2014-up GM truck.
Note: The vehicle harness contains two Molex connectors
which plug into your GM truck's factory radio harness. On the other end of
the harness is a 16-pin connector and 14-pin connector which plug into the
radio replacement interface module. This same harness also includes to male
RCA connectors to retain your factory Aux input and steering wheel remote
input wire (green/black) which has to be hardwired at the steering column. The radio harness is fitted with a 16-pin Alpine
radio connector and camera/SWC harness which plugs into the back of the
Alpine 8" LCD touchscreen; there is a 22-pin connector which plugs in the radio
replacement interface module on the other end. This harness also includes a
