Looking for a wiring harness. I used Crutchfield. They sent me completely wrong harnesses and a head unit with RCA ports in the back. Can someone help me out? My truck has no sub in the back. Produced in December of 97. Previous owner installed a disc changer. I uploaded pictures of the stock harnesses and the rear of the new Alpine head unit. The 70-5701 looks like it might fit, but it SEEMS like it comes with an extra plug. Already tried 70-5519. It fits the factory plug on the left. But that's it. Any help is appreciated.

I bought both of my wiring kits from Walmart (make sure yours is on the vehicle list) for my explorer and ranger, both are 96 models and both kits had every wire I needed. BTW if you connect the power antenna wire to the factory amp wire (if you have a factory amp) you'll be good to go! Wiring diagrams come with the kits!

Metra 70-5701 was the one that worked. It also includes the harnesses for vehicles with stock amps. I just didn't use it. Wiring was easy after I got the right harnesses. The Alpine head unit only uses the RCA jacks when equipped with an amp, so I just ignored that too. If anyone is curious, this head unit is VERY loud and has a bunch of features. Kind of spendy, but head units just are, in my opinion.​
