Okay, I think I've got what I need located and bought. I found a 15114454 amp from an Escalade for $100, shipped. I found a center console harness that includes the microphone and all the connectors for $50, shipped. All the new speakers will be here tomorrow. The Pioneer head unit and the PAC GM11 are already in the truck and working fine.

Thanks again.

Okay, finally got time to work on it. Made a couple of missteps along the way, but it all works now. I need to finish the assembly of the truck, the console is still loose, and the seats are out. So far, it sounds good. Fully assembled and adjusted it should be great. Stuffing the amp and the subwoofer, mounted in the box, into the console is extremely difficult. But I did not want to put anything under the seats, I use that storage space for other things.

Thanks, do you feel the how-to needs any improvements to the article?

I do see some of the links are down, I have the PDF for factory nav install a full GM how to R&R and install the GPS antenna, I will still need to add info... for oversea's truck family.

I think the how to for the conversion from Bose amp to luxury Bose amp is fine. That's pretty much all that I used from the article, since I used an aftermarket radio. I have not installed a back up camera, yet, and since I have a smart phone, I'm not spending the money on navi.

I can say for certain that you can use the PAC RP5 GM11 interface to make an aftermarket head unit work with the Bose luxury amp. And it seems to work well, I like it. I should add that I dumped the factory subwoofer for an 8" Pioneer, powered by a Pioneer amp, all in the console. So I cannot say how it would work with the factory subwoofer driven by the luxury amp, but I see no reason it won't.

I took pictures of the speaker mounting in the doors, including the tweeters, and the tweeters in the A pillars, but all of that stuff is pretty straight forward. I also took pictures of the console modifications to stuff the subwoofer and aftermarket amp in it.
