you need to get a line out converter and use that to run to the line in on the amp. rerun speaker wire to the door speakers then. I assume you are replacing the speakers too? Don't amp the factory speakers.

I dumped the whole factory system in my '08 and the guys said at the shop that did my truck said it don't matter what stereo you have they have seen an amp in these trucks without the infinity sound system.
You need to open the glove box all the way up by releasing a couple tabs and pointing it to the floor mat to look up under the dash. There either a large opening or an amp.

exactly what he said. Best place to tap in for the line output converter is right behind the deck.

Aw, hell. What fun is it not to amp the factory speaker just before youre going to replace them anyway? :rck:

I dont have a pic but there is a tab at the top left and one on the right side. You cant miss them as they are the only thing that makes contact from the glove box door to the top.

all a line output converter does is take the signal from the speaker wires and converts it into RC Cable so you can plug them into the amp. you can get them at audio stores, ebay. Here - I have a 4 channel loc with remote wire lead that I will sell for $15 shipped. PM me if you are intersted.

The other option would be to replace the factory deck with an aftermarket.
