I just purchased an 8120 off ebay and am very excited. I have been watching and waiting for quite a while.
Now that I have the HU on it's way, I need to order accessories to go with my 2008 2500hd and have a few concerns/questions.
I have been looking at Metra and Scosche dash kits. From what I've read Metra has the superior dash kit.
For steering wheel controls I'm looking at the PAC SWI-JACK and the ASWC. Reading up the PAC sounds as though it has more programming options.
I don't listen to satellite, nor do I need an IPOD adapter.
The video bypass is done via a non switching ground, correct?
Do I need an antenna adapter?
Now, for harnesses...
Do I need a speaker adapter/harness for my BOSE speakers?
Should I get a wiring harness for my Silverado, or just solder the wires? In the past I've cheaped out and just soldered the wires.
Is there anything else I need? Can anyone recommend a site where I can get all of these items to minimize shipping costs to Canada?
Thank you kindly,
