I have an AM/FM/CD player (freightliner brand) in my FL-60 business class. Sometime ago the FM portion of the radio quit working, not sure if the CD works or not. My sons gave me a new radio for fathers day. I haven't installed a radio in 40 years. They gave me a JVC, it has 14 wires sticking out of the plug. I know I won't connect all of them, (I hope) but has anybody replaced a radio in a freightliner before? How big a job will this be? Any helpful hints would certainly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Do some checking around, you may be able to find an adapter to plug into the new radio and plug your existing wiring into the adapter. Radio shops or Freightliner?

I would recommend getting in touch with Crutchfield Audio, they have a Huge online store, and some great tech people you can call that can help you find what you need to install your stereo. I purchased a nice pioneer stereo for my Wife's 2002 T Bird and they supplied me with a wiring harness to plug directly in the cars existing wiring without having to cut any of the stock wiring, and easy to read printed instructions specific to the T bird showing how to remove and install the dash trim,stereo mounting and wiring. I was really amazed how simple it was with all the help they provided, get in touch with them at the link, Great people.....Tom

Got the adapter harness for my Freightliner at dealer. Was about $18. Plugs in to harness and has wires to hook to your radio. That way you don't have to guess or cut in to truck harness. This is just the first one of many to show up.

Odds are the FL harness is the same as one of the other major auto brands and once you find that out it will be a simple task for Crutchfield to send you the correct adapter. Heck they may even speak "Freightliner" as they are pretty big and I wouldn't be surprised to find out they've sold a few systems for big rigs.

+1 on Crutchfield. Good company. Their dash & harness kits have made installations super easy and when I did have a question, they were ready & right on the mark.

I would keep the radio and get a different truck.
