    Hey Folks..... this might seem like a dumb question, but im gonna ask :)
    I am doing a complete dash swap from a 14 CC Sport to my 14 RCSB ST, would i need to look into this wiring ? Or should it be plug and play as im direct swapping the dash?

    On a side note- i currently have the 3.0 Radio, but will be installing a Pioneer DD mechless receiver when i swap the dash, so anything i should be looking at there?

    Thanks for the detailed explanation.

    Here are my comments:

    1-
    ==> What is the difference between the radios part number ending AH, AK, AF, etc?
    And if I get the UAS model (w/o NAV) it shouldn't matter what region I live in, correct?

    2-
    ==> My truck comes with this media hub, that means I dont need to upgrade this?

    3-
    ==> Since my truck is a 2019 classic that comes with 7 speed fan, do i still need this?

    4-
    ==> What is the difference between the single/dual zone vs. the custom single zone?
