How do you install a radio into a 89' Dodge Dakota?

Some people are naturals at figuring out what wire does what. I

on the other hand am not. I had to install a single din radio in my

89 Dakota so I bought a wiring kit. Found at your local auto parts

store. It came with the 2 plugs that are required for the double

din radios that are original equipment. There is a diagram that

comes with these that tells you what color wire is for what and if

you can set down with the radio out of the dash somewhere that you

can see everything and use solder and heat shrink to attach the new

plugs then you can just plug it up to the original equipment plugs

in the truck. If there has all ready been a different radio

installed and the plugs are not there then I would suggest finding

a friend that has done the cut and splice before.
