I just replaced my stocker with a Pioneer DEH-6300UB and at first I was given the wrong wiring harness. They gave me one that came up in their system as the right one but it wouldn't come close to fitting the stock harness (the wrong one has flat pins and is the wrong pin out), the correct one has round pins and is a little smaller but fits perfectly in the stock harness connector. There are two different radio antenna extensions you can get too, the correct one has a little black plastic piece at the end that snaps into your stock antenna connection. I had to drive back and get these parts then the install was a breeze. Remember to hook up the "unit remote control" wire (on the Pioneer harness) to the blue cable on the harness you get from Car Toys or wherever so you don't bypass the amp and you actually get audio.

Hope that helps...
