I recently purchased a 1993 Explorer 4x4 4 door 4.0L V6. Only problem is it's got no head unit and I would like to install one except I don't know how and I am not paying someone $100 to do it for me. Somebody please help.

It is pretty straight forward. Get you wire harness and after market radio. The wires are color coded so all you do is match them up and insulate them well. Take the cage to the radio and install it. There are small tabs that you bend to hold it in place. The plug the radio up, slide back into the cage/dash and check to see if you have power.

OK, so I bought the new stereo but problem is, the wires do not match up at all. I have about 12 wires and a plug that won't fit the new stereo. The stereo has two plugs, one plug input (does not match the ford), and a spot for two speakers!
