    Your only real option is to take the factory radio harness and cut the radio end off. It will be color coded just like your after market harness and just match the wires by color. Every stereo I have seen uses standardized color coding.I have never seen an adapter for trucks like they have for cars.

    From what I've read, KW has been using ISO standard connectors for a while now. See if the connectors match up with what's on this page:

    Particularly, make sure that the +12V is where it's supposed to be.

    look for the wiring kit. anytime you buy a radio for a car there is a wiring kit that plugs from the car to the radio brand.,

    don't ask me why they can't be standardized. but the last thing i'd do is cut the wires to the harnesss in the truck and start doing my own wiring.
