there aren't any sub outs on the stock deck. You'll have to splice into the speaker wire and use a line output converter.

You can keep the stock deck pretty easily, What you do is take the speaker wire from the rear speakers, and split it. One intot he speakers still, and another into either an amp that accepts speaker level inputs or a box that converts speaker inputs into preouts. Then it'* easy, you retain stock look, and everything else. Not the best sounding soultion in the world, but not bad. the PAC swi-x isn't the best but it does it'* job, it'* around 50 online.

I think the PAC SWI-X is your only option to keep your steering wheel controls with and aftermarket head unit.
