Ya, adapter. I like the cassette one over the radio one (in my 94 Dodge dually) but they tell me the radio ones have come along ways?

for the cleanest possible sound i would hard wire an aux jack into the tape deck. the tape adapters have ok quality, but the way i did it its like you are listening to a cd.

Nice one Roy!. hehehe. Actually I had a Craig 4 track player that was "open faced" on top and the 4 track tape slid between 2 side bars. They didn't last long before the 8 Track improvement was done..... but by 1994 I had "evloved" into the modern world.

I once ripped a Bose system out of a 98SSE. Then a Monsoon out of a 03 GA GT.

My 05 Mitsubishi EVO came stock with a full Bose system and I preferred that over the Monsoon system in my 99 GS.
