Radio install, cut and crimp.

Spent an easy hr putting a 21st century JVC radio in our 17 yo w-22.
Lots of cutting and crimping.
We’ve moved into the rig full time and when “ reorganizing “ I accidentally threw the Sony radio keys away. A couple bucks and I got them from Amazon
Stereo places look at you real funny when you ask for a workhorse adapter kit. Lol
Our Sony would cut out on bumps and the red display was very hard to see.
The jvc is far from a high end radio but just what we need. Be good competition to the 8.1 purr. .

The 8.1"purr" is more noise than my radio can overcome. If I jack up the volume so that I can actually hear it, the sheer volume of the engine racket and radio sound is just dangerously distracting. The speakers are way above my head and their location is most of the problem IMHO.

Can you send the model number and possibly some pictures.
My Sony is so small that I can't even see the buttons when stopped.
I had a 2003 with a large "Ford" radio - it was superb.
