    I am really wanting to get a remote start put in my vehicle. I called a few places around town and they are all charging around $240.00 for install+product. My question is, I could get a nicer unit for that price and install it myself, but how hard is it to do? I have a wiring diagram for my truck, I just don't know how much involved these systems can be. I don't think I'll do an alarm, just the remote start.

    I would bet with a wiring diagram and the help from a few guys here that you could do it yourself and save some money.

    Hopefully Matt will chime in, I believe he has mentioned a guy who somewhat pre-fabs all the harness and what not and has very good instructions.

    Hit up Travis over at KCAutoSound.com.

    He does custom F150 installations in the Kansas City area as well as stock installations for dealers. On top of that he runs the online store.

    For us F150s (and only $25 more), he does what's called "pre-wiring", where he deletes any unnecessary wires and ties them up for an easy install. He also includes custom color instructions for our trucks, making it a fairly easy installation.



    I installed mine on a rainy Saturday, and he was available by phone to answer any questions I had. Very helpful (and busy) guy. Highly recommended here. :thumbs:



    FYI you will also need a PATS bypass.
