    I have a 1987 Ford Ranger, the thing is there has never been a radio in the truck or speakers. I want to put on in but I’m not too sure how to go about doing it, or even where to start. If someone could please let me know that would be great so I can get this in. Thanks, Derick M.

    Derick, you would be required to run a constant power wire, switched power wire, ground wire and new speaker wires for each speaker you plan to install. Our advice is to take your car to a qualified mobile audio installer and have them install a radio and speakers because it does take some wiring knowledge and experience to know what to wire up. Hope this helps. Good luck on your 1987 Ford Ranger stereo and speaker installation.
