shouldn't be any harder than swapping radios in a car. everything should be there to tap into, may need an adapter face plate or install kit from autozone or wallyworld.

I cover plate (for boats) this allows me to use radio in all weather and my JVC has a USB drive I can plug in my usb flash drive and have access to my 1000+ songs, or in a flash switch out for one of my Audio Books... my advice look over the system and think hard before you cut anything..

I used a cheap boat radio from bass pro shop w/ sd card usb and 1/8 plug for itunes type. took the dremel to square out for the din mount the radio has no cd and is reasonable water resistant new speakers from an electronics place and all is well.
Hope this helps
