12 or so years ago I pulled the stock radio and cubby and added a tuffy box and a Kenwood or alpine radio. I used an adapter plug so my wiring is fine. I sold the radio. Out of laziness I haven’t pulled the antenna up in five years. I figure if I’m not even going to use it I might as well have a stock radio in there.
I have an original cubby box but am not dumb enough to use that.
