Sony's CDX-GT270MP CD receiver combines a user-friendly front-panel design with some nice options that'll keep you entertained. Designed with a sleek face that's detachable for security, this receiver features red button illumination that makes for maximum visibility at night. But this puppy is more than just a pretty face.
Sony's provided a built-in 3-band equalizer so you can tweak the bass, midrange, and treble to get your music sounding just right. If you've got a sub in your car, you can use the receiver's high-pass filter to trim the low bass out of your speakers, so the built-in amp can rock louder without distortion. Sony's proud of their Digital Clarity tuner that reduces interference and increases separation for excellent AM/FM reception. You can play your storebought CDs or discs loaded with MP3/WMA music, and the front auxiliary input makes it easy to jam out with just about any portable device. Sony includes a wireless card remote so you can control all this entertainment.
In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

Excellent stereo for the price. Easy to install w/kit
Replaced factory radio with this one, good price. great sound .
My factory radio with 6 CD changer failed so I had to replace it. I chose this one for the price and value and wasn't disappointed. Crutchfield support with installation instructions and all the right parts and adapters and wiring was super-impressive! It installed without a hitch and I find it intuitive to use and a great sound with good features too.
Pros: Cool looking, great features. I like the 1/8" jack for MP3 player input.
This added sound I never knew my wifes car had.
A decent radio for the price. The controls are a bit counterintuitive, which might be annoying until you get used to them.
Pros: Price, equalizer, RDS (radio data system for song ID, etc.), detachable face plate
Cons: controls are not intuitive at least initially
Installed this head unit in a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee after the original died. The Sony CDX sounds great.
Pros: Easy to use and change settings Cool look with an awesome display Very easy to hook up with the provided wire connection.
Good unit for the price
This product was fairly straight forward to install in my 2001 Toyota Camry. It fits well and is sleek-looking. The main selling point for me is the AUX cable input of the front. It has been working great.
Pros: AUX input of the front, great quality, removable face plate, remote, easy to install
Cons: none that I can think of
Easy self-install, great sound for a great price.
Great product for the value, Very easy to install
Pros: Easy to install and good construction
Cons: None so far
Great product for the value. Really like how easy the installation was.
Pros: Easy installation Aux input Improves sound of stock speakers Loud
Cons: Lack of bluetooth
I use it as a portable radio in a tractor-trailer. Serves the purpose just fine.
Good sound for the money
Pros: Good sound for price easy to install
Radio and CD player works great
Pros: Good FM reception. CD plays home made discs.
Nice unit for the price. Installation directions easy to follow. Easy install. I was impressed with the free shipping and quick response by Crutchfield. No doubt they will be my first choice when shopping in the future.
Pros: Overall this is a decent receiver/ CD player. Nice appearance and detachable face is ideal for a convertible. I would recomend to anyone looking for a low price and acceptable features.
Cons: I was confused on how to use controls. I think with some use and a learning period they wont be too bad. They are no different than any radio of its type. Just new to me
As always , always happy with Sony products! And Crutchfield is a top notch supplier!
Great value for the price. Pulls in stations I have never been able to get before. Easy to install and use. Made my old truck seem like new again!
Pros: Easy install, great reception and good sound quality
Cons: Would have liked a "taller" volume control know that would be easier to use with gloves.
Makes my factory speakers sound a lot better than the Ford factory receiver, and I like that it will play recorded cd's.
Pros: Sounds great. Easy to setup. customer service was excellent and knew just what to do on install. I was describing things like "that square plastic thing" and they handled it like pro's every time. Patiently walked me thru the steps and made the experience enjoyable and actually fun.
Cons: Wife got mad at me for stealing her cd's, but they sounded so good!
Simple but complete.
very good unit for the money
Pros: great value
For the price this radio was a no brainer. I was looking for a simple radio to replace my broken stock radio, something that had an Aux in and decent sound. This radio totally delivers! It's really easy to use and there are a lot of sound options for getting it to sound just right in your car. Installation was a snap with the proper accessories. The radio might not turn heads as it is a basic functional radio, but for me it was perfect.
Pros: Easy to use and Install, great sound and aux in port for my phone/ipod. Great sound options and pleanty of presets.
Very clean sound , made my factory speakers sound better .
Pros: Clean clear sound , looks great and the remote comes in handy. Great buy for so little money.
Cons: None yet.
fantastic radio and value
Pros: great sound
It's easy to install as Crutchfield helps you get the correct mounting hardware.
Pros: Sony quality for a value based system
Cons: None found yet
Seems to be a good unit. I have not used it much as it's July and I put it in an ice fishing house. Wish it had individual controls for base/treble like car radios. Will know more come December. Had to "rebend the tabs" to get it to snap into the adapter . Overall a good buy for the price.
Pros: Plenty of power
Cons: Adapter sleeve had to be modified to get unit to snap into place.
Excellent value for the price. I received everything I needed for my mom's '02 Saturn SL1 . 3 band EQ, MP3 compatible, front AUX. She didn't care about the preamps, no USB or more EQ bands. She just needed a basic stereo to play CDs and radio stations clear. This Sony does that very well. Stations come in much better than the OEM CD player. The sound quality is much improved as well. Even with the stock coaxial speakers, it sounds very good. I am impressed also at its ease of use. It didn't take long to get using it habitually. Satisfied with purchase and Sony products. PS, Crutchfield's service is top notch!
The Sony stereo works great. Great price. Fast delivery.
Good upgrade from cassette to CD and AUX input with the option to run a sub-woofer.
Pros: Good sound even with stock speakers in an '89 Mustang.
Cons: Would have liked the station preset to be displayed (ie; FM1, #2) with the clock display as in my old Panasonic.
Love this radio it is amazing, sounds and works great.
Basic receiver/CD to replace a Sony Receiver/Cassette I purchased from Crutchfield in 1996. Installation was easy and quick. Price was right and it has everything I needed.
Pros: Appearance, Plays MP3, WMA, and regular music CD.
Cons: None that I see
Awesome product for the cost. And the directions and kit I received for install made it easy to install in my Saturn SL1. Highly recommend if you are looking for a budget deck.
This radio/CD combination was exactly what I needed when replacing the original radio in my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. The instruction list provided by Crutchfield made installation a snap, even for a bonehead like me.I also accidentally broke a piece of the plastic face plate, and Crutchfield sent me a new one within a day at no extra charge.I can't speak highly enough of their customer service.
Pros: Price and quality. Great value.
Love the product. Built very well and with the right harness it was very easy to install. Features allow for the perfect adjustments to fit my set up and choice of music. Quality product, quality company, and many thanks to the Crutchfield team for their support, help and service
Pros: Price Features Sound Quality Product Quality Ease of Installation
Cons: User Interface takes a small time to become used to
I got this radio to replace my 2003 Civic radio that finally died on me. It was easy to replace, fits well with the install kit recommended.
Pros: Easy to install, decent cheap radio.
Cons: None as long as you like simple.
This product was very well priced since it was on discount. Very simple but I wasn't going for anything fancy. I like that it has the aux input in the front. Decent quality.
Pros: Sony does a good job. Easy to use. Plain and simple.
Cons: Not really any if you're going for the basic.
I bought this because it was a Sony product. As such, the build quality seems to be there. I bought it ONLY because I wanted an input for my IPod. It fits perfectly in a 1998 Honda CR-V, ie it fits in the same location as the factory radio without need for the "special" instal kit recommended by Crutchfield . I was also able to retain the original little bin compartment under the radio. Having said that, you have to be clever about mounting the original bin under the new Sony radio. It takes some fiddling to make the original bin clips fit into some holes on the Sony radio. It is easy to do. But SHAME on Crutchfield for not recommending a mating plug. The male power plug that comes with the radio just has loose wires on it. You would have to cut wires on the ORIGINAL female plug and wire it to the Sony male plug....... all while sitting inside you car working through your dashboard. I found a female plug on-line and wired the Sony male plug to it. PS. find the YouTube video on how to take a CR-V dashboard apart, that save lots of time. On to the disappointment. The radio interface is clumsy. My biggest peeve is how the SETUP is tied to the volume. If you press the volume button, it goes into setup mode, then as you turn the knob all the parameters scroll instead of changing the volume. How frequent do you need to change the radio sound, etc? Also, the radio beeps when you shut the car off....to remind you to remove the faceplate. Drive me nuts and you can't turn it off.
Pros: Seems like Sony quality, I can pull in more stations.
Cons: Poorly designed user interface. I wish it had a knob for changing stations. Really, coolness factor for a car radio? Just give me one that easy to work with.
I bought this reciever for my 1984 F150 and so far its great. It puts out great quality sound and i couldnt be more pleased with it. I wanted a simple reciever for the old truck that wasnt very expensive.
Pros: Looks good, Good Quality Sound,Easy to use
Excellent stereo for the price
Pros: Great stereo with minimal options.
Cons: No USB port
This is a simple and basic stereo. Works perfect of what I bought it for.
Pros: Simple and basic design.
Cons: None that I have.
My son and I spent Saturday afternoon on this project. The instructions for the disassembly of my 2004 Honda Civic dashboard were pretty straight forward as were the instructions for assembling the adapter plug. Reassembly instructions could have been clearer. Rudy in support was awesome! The unit sounds great!
Pros: The Sony unit beats the heck out of a replacement Honda radio plus $250 for installation. Great telephone support at 4:00 PM on Saturday afternoon. Sound quality equal to or better than the OEM unit.
Cons: The antenna connection was on the opposite side of where it was on the original radio and was too short to reach the socket on the new unit. We went to another retailer for an extension cable.
My OEM radio died. The Sony and other equipment that the Crutchfield told me I needed went in easily and it all works.
Pros: Great service from Crutchfield to solve the problem.
This is a great deck for the price. Bought each of my kids one for Christmas. Lots of options for sound quality and adjustment for each persons likes. Fit and looks great in 2002 and 2005 Dodge Neon.
Pros: All pros
Cons: No cons
Bought this for a replacement for my factory cd player that quit working. It has great sound and was easy to set up.
Replaced the factory radio in my 2000 VW Beetle with this Sony. I was able to install it myself, and it works great. I was disappointed with the instructions, though - they were frustratingly vague, and the install took me most of a day. I started with the parts list; first thing: I need a Torx T15 screwdriver. An unexpected trip to the store. 3 or 4 pages later, I need a wire stripper and crimping caps. Those weren't even on the parts list! So yet another trip to the store. The hardest step didn't have any tips or instructions at all: how to fit 2 new adapters, 14 extra lengths of wire, and 11 crimp caps into the already too-tight space behind the receiver under the dash. I had to call in my husband for the equivalent of sitting on the suitcase lid to get it jammed shut. Frustrating, as I wanted to do the whole install myself!
Cons: Vague instructions, not all needed tools are listed up front.
I installed this SONY to replace a BLAUPUNKT that I purchased from Crutchfield ten years ago. The SONY installation was easy because of the Crutchfield conversion kit that was already installed in my 1985 Mercedes. The SONY operates wonderfully and gets better as I learn more about the built-in features.
Pros: Ease of installation. Great price (better than Amazon). Tech support from Crutchfield is always the best.
Cons: I find the bright red lighting on the controls to be a bit annoying and too flashy for me.
This radio is easy to use,I never had to read instructions very easy to operate
I ordered this radio to replace a non functioning OEM radio, I installed easy and works great.
great for the money
Works amazing sounds very nice
Not the unit that I would have picked, but the wife is happy. Everything seems to work fine so far
Pros: Easy to install
Cons: Didn't fit the dash adapter until I eliminated the sleeve and mounted it the old way
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Faceplate kinda hard to put on
Good value very pleased with radio.
Great bang for the buck. Not the latest and greatest but really solid tunes for the money.
Pros: Easy to use . Great manual.
Awesome radio for the price. Easy to install and easy to program. This would be the first time ever that I installed a radio. Had no problems at all.
Pros: Great Price, Fast Shipping! Easy Website to use.
Great product. The 3rd Sony car stereo that I have purchased and have had no complaints toward any of them.
very easy to install.
Pros: sounds good for a lower priced unit
Cons: not easy for older folks who are used to push buttons.
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Sony CDX-GT270MP to be installed into my wife's 2007 Ford Taurus. The sound quality is outstanding. Really there is no comparison between the Sony and the factory stereo. It definitely makes our drives more enjoyable knowing that we can change from tuner to CD to Aux modes with a push of a button. We are still getting used to all of the features and functions of the Sony, but overall am very pleased with the product. Thank you very much!!
Good value for the dollar
Works great. Love the aux plug for iPod.
Pros: Looks cool
Cons: A little complicated a and it is constantly changing display.
Great product at the right price. Installation was quick and easy. Sound is great.
I've had no problems with this head unit. Had it for about a month now. Easy to use and looks pretty cool. I see people saying that you can't get rid of the "scrolling messages" and that its "too bright." Both of that is nonsense. You can turn the scrolling messages off and you can dim the lights on the HU. If you can't figure something out... read the manual. I didn't have to read it because its very easy to use.
Pros: Easy to use Sony quality Looks good Sounds good Nice presets
Cons: Bluetooth connectivity would be cool
Great radio fits in my dash well simple to use
Pros: Easy to use AUX input simple set up and installation
Cons: Display isn't very customizable but value wise it's great
What can I say? It's a Sony :) Thank to you Crutchfield for offering this Sony at a great price! I have always trusted in Crutchfield and will continue to do so in the future. Keep the great deals coming.
Pros: Sony Quality, Crutchfield dependability.
Cons: None yet!!
Sounds great without amplifiers so I can only imagine what it will sound like when I install amps!
Nice unit. Easy install, and sweet sounds. Great value.
Pros: easy features
Very simple to install and really has that coolness factor. I also replaced all four of my factory speakers which really made a difference in sound quality. No need to install an external amp. This unit pumps out quite nice. Thank you Crutchfield!
Pros: Value and free shipping. Will give it one more star later if it pass my "smoke test"......he, he.
Not as simple to use as I had hoped. It suits my car well and has solid sound quality.
great product for the price.. I wanted an inexpensive upgrade in my "98 Accord that I could plug my iPod in..this fits the bill just wonderfully. I upgraded the speakers too and it sounds brand new
Pros: inexpensive and still packs a punch
Cons: none for me
Nice complete unit, the remote seems kinda unnecessary
I used this stereo to replace my factory stereo in my 2005 honda civic. So far its given me no real issues.. however I'd recommend reading the user guide before using the stereo, especially when changing the sound settings. Some of the settings lingo/accessibility is difficult to understand and use. The sound quality isn't always superb, but that's probably due to the speakers in my car. Either way its lightyears better then my factory stereo (plays mp3 cds/ipod dock) and it was cost efficient!
Excellent product for the price. Easy to install; took about one hour. Connected well to On Star. Both receiver and CD perform in an excellent manner. This was a replacement for a factory unit that would have cost over $800 to replace. Haven't used the Aux jack as yet, trusting it will perform as does the rest of the unit.
Pros: Great price for the equipment provided. Good sound (not great sound) , easy to program and operate. Fits very well in dash as a replacement to the factory unit.
Cons: Doesn't offer top of the line individual front and rear speaker balance; just basic balance. Clock screen will not remain in place without scrolling of options.
great service and great folks to deal with God bless you all
Pretty much everything I wanted for a decent upgrade from the factory-installed radio. Pretty easy to install and Crutchfield was fantastic with the order. HHighly recommend the Sony product and Crutchfield!!
Performed as expected, simple install, works great with my Volvo OEM speakers.
Pros: Sound, price, ease of install, removable face,
Cons: Looks a bit cheap, but for the price, I'm not complaining, controls not intuitive but once you read the manual all is well, button to release face is to small.
Excellent quality and ease of installation. I had a friend install it for me and he was very impressed with the quality and features. I love the USB connection too. Added bonus in my book.
Pros: The fit was perfect for the model and make I selected. It was very easy to install and there were several faces to choose from in the box.
Cons: Now that I have a good radio, I have to upgrade the speakers as I found they were so old and several did not work.
Great product, fit easily with GM adapter plate
Overall it's a pretty decent head unit. Sound quality is what you would expect out of Sony. It is a basic unit as for features. Very easy to install and wire up. However the menu navigation is "clunky" at best. Once you figure that out the features are lacking. Setting your tones for the sound you wish to hear leaves a lot to be desired. I also don't particularly care for the constant scrolling and blinking text about features. I do a lot of night driving and it's distracting with all this going on about every 15 mins.
It was a first stereo for my son's first car. We had it installed with in 30 minutes and the sound was great and he couldn't be happier. It sounds good and easy to use. Perfect for the price.
Pros: Easy to use and install.
Cons: none at this price.
For the price, you can't go wrong. Went right in to my '96 Corolla with only the swap of two brackets and the addition of the wiring harness supplied by Crutchfield. The beeping when you shut the car off is slightly annoying but not a big deal.
Pros: Price and quality.
Cons: It took me a minute to figure out the menu operations... maybe if I had read the instructions it would've been easier.
Great radio for the price.
Pros: Easy install and easy to use.
Cons: Doesn't have a usb port.
the sony radio is just what i was looking for. it's great
I waited two months before posting this just in case the receiver blew up but it didn't so Hooray For Me. Anyway, it's a good solid set up and I have no complaints. People have called this out for not being user friendly but as long as you skim the manual, you'll be good to go. I make a point to stow the face plate when the car is going to be in the sun as per the instructions and I haven't had any problems. It sounds great and my MP3 player sounds swell played through it; it's leagues better than the factory model (and playing through its cassette deck was both a hassle and didn't do the MP3 any favors.) The only minor gripe I have is that the crimps supplied were different than the crimps in the instructions so I ended up destroying a few before I finally figured things out and because I chose to have this flush to the dash, I had to put some some bolts underneath the adapter/harness things so the receiver wouldn't wobble inward when you press the buttons. Still, I did request the in-dash option so that's all on me. Anyway, it's a terrific value and highly recommend it..
Pros: Sound great, easy installation, easy-to-use.
Cons: some minor inconsistencies in the instructions and the materials supplied.
Very nice awesome sound
Pros: Best bang for your buck
Cons: Have not found any awesome deck for this price
Easy to install, easy to use and excellent sound.
Pros: great sound for price
Good unit for money
Pros: Good sound for the price
wanted a basic Tuner that would be easy to use. this unit worked better than expected and was an easy install. If you want good sound with ease of use this unit does the job. Execellent product great price thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Easy to use. good Reception. good sound
I got this unit to replace a factory stereo in my Rendezvous, it performs nicely for the price. I wasn't looking for a lot of bells and whistles, just a unit I could plug my Ipod into with great sound quality.
Sony makes a great product!
This is a Very nice radio for the price. Has great sound.
VERY EASY INSTALL
Works great and great sound quality
Pros: Sound is fabulous and cheap cheap price
Have only had the unit for 2 weeks. Seems to be a good quality Sony product.
Pros: Was a good price, has an AUX input
Cons: Remote does not turn unit on!
this is a good bang for your buck not the best on the market but it makes a major difference to a factory stereo for a cheap dollar amount
Pros: easy installation, easy operating "never looked that the manual" great sound quality , cheap investment. reads the radio station and the song playing
Cons: no usb port. red is an over used color for screens
typical sony good quality!
Pros: easy to read and follow instructions
I bought the stereo along with the factory plug adapters and had it shipped to my house while I was out of town. I received the email that it was delivered and texted my 14 year old son to let him know it should be there. Within 30 min. he sent me a photo of it in the vehicle, ALREADY INSTALLED!!! Awesome sound and quality for price. Installation was a breeze. Already bought another one just for a spare....
Pros: ease of installation, four stereo hook up, aux plug
Ordered this stereo to replace the original in my 1990 Toyota Celica. Received the stereo the next day. Instructions were clear and precise. Had no trouble with the installation.
good service and value.
A very nice and easy to install AM/FM/CD radio replacement for my wife's Mini Van. Good sound, good quality, reasonably priced and with the BEST instalation instructions from Crutchfield. This is the second radio I recently replace for my cars and Crutchfield can't be beat for SERVICE and quality. I will buy from them again and endorse them to any one who has a modicum of DIY abilities!
Pros: The 1-800 number for technical support makes installing it yourself a snap!
Cons: No down sides yet!!
I bought this unit for my daughters car and she loves it. It has great features for the price.
Pros: EASY installation, nice graphics, good sound.
Pros: For the price great value
Cons: just the chimes when I shut the car off
This thing is great. All i wanted was a radio that i could plug my ipod in to and works great. The remote feature that comes with it is very cool and works great
This unit was Lower priced than many but puts out great sound for the money. It was easy to insall with the Install kit I purchased and the Tech line answered my question quickly.
Pros: Easy install, Many easy to use features
Cons: Next time I will get a tuner with 5 band equilizer, the 3 band eq doesnt dile the sound in as well.
I bought this one strictly for the price as I needed something just so my kid can stick her iPod in to to play her teenie bopper music. The install was a piece of cake and the sound quality is great.
Pros: Great sound quality with most of the adjustments you'll need for little refinements.
Cons: The biggest con is that Sony just doesn't get it with extremely annoying "don't forget the faceplate" beep when turning off the ignition. At least give us a way to disable it. At times, I want to replace the unit just for that reason. Also the print on the buttons are too small but once you have them memorized...no biggie.
Great service, prompt delivery, great price, and was not that hard to install. It took no more than 45 minutes to get the whole unit up and running. Sound quality is great!
Pros: Easy to install, great service, and prompt delivery
Works great, controls could be a bit more intuitive, but quality construction (well hey, it's a Sony). Great value.
Pros: Sound, quality.
Cons: Ha! The beep when the car is turned off. What is that about?
The price was pretty good, so sound quality and coolness are about what I expected. I'm happy with that. The downsides are, a user interface that is not very intuitive. I could not have set it up without the manual. And, this is REALLY annoying, every time I turn off the car, the radio goes thru a series of loud beeps. I turned off the beep on key press as shown in the manual, but it still does it. It seems that if I remove the front panel of the radio it does not do it, so I guess this is a reminder to remove the front panel. I have not found anything about this in the manual or online discussions. Supposedly the removable front panel is a security feature, but please... a radio under $100 ? I wish I'd known about this "feature" before buying.
Pros: Good price, appropriately good sound, easy install
Cons: User interface that is not intuitive. Super annoying beep on power down that seems impossible to disable.
Horrible product. Stayed away from Sony past 10 years everything was breaking. Tried now for inexpensive item. Same. Horrible. Very poor range pick-up for radio. Driving in Staten Island barely picks up NYC. Nothing picked up in NJ. AM receptn horrible. Pulled it out gave to brother.

Crutchfield always seems to have all the correct adapters for any application. If you can take your old radio out theres no reason you couldnt install this unit. [ konehead Feb 24, 2015 ]
crutchfield has a wiring adapter for specific vehicles. I can only give info on install for my vehicle, a 1998 Honda civic. I thought that this was going to be a difficult install, but with the wiring adapter and crutchfields install directions, it was fairly easy. [ FRANK A Feb 23, 2015 ]
If you buy the wiring harness that fits the car you are installing it in it will be easy. it was a plug and play for the car I put it in. I don't remember if they called it an install kit or wiring harness conversion or what but it all just plugged together nicely and it had a faceplate that fit the dash nicely. [ GLEN Feb 23, 2015 ]
I have no knowledge of that. [ GENE L Sep 08, 2014 ]
Yes it has a clock. My husband likes everything about this radio. He put it in a 1995 Chevy one ton. Works great [ ROBIN Aug 26, 2014 ]

my ipod plugs in with a cable and yes you will need a trim kit [ JAMES Feb 21, 2014 ]
It comes with a 3.5 headphone jack in the front. so if you use a male to male 3.5 audio cable,then yes you can use your Sony music player. but no USB ports. as far as the trim plate goes I'm not sure. if you searched for audio devises by car the crutch field will suggest exactly what you need. [ TROY Feb 21, 2014 ]
there are six preset buttons which I believe can be set for fm1, fm2 and am. I have only used the fm1 presets so far. When I bought mine, I entered the make and model of my car and they only referred me to the players that would fit. Mine did require a kit to attach it. The should let you know that. [ GENE L Jan 07, 2014 ]
usually an after market head unit provides a lil more power than ur stock radio! [ BRYSON Dec 15, 2013 ]
Hey Jacob I purchased this for my 2005 Toyota Camry. I have stock speakers and I do hear a difference in the sound. I would recommend getting a receiver with a usb port. I found myself wishing I bought the Sony with it. [ ALVIN Dec 13, 2013 ]
You will need a wiring harness and likely and installation kit as well. For detailed info on the install in this vehicle feel free to reach out to an Advisor by phone or online chat. [ Jeff Dec 13, 2013 ] Staff
Thanks for your question Kevin. We do recommend a kit and harness for this install. With these items the install should be pretty easy. Feel free to call or chat with an Advisor for more details on the install. [ Jeff Nov 13, 2013 ] Staff
