2 ways
I have a direct input FM modulator with 2 GM antenna adapters Im selling that interrupts one FM radio station and inserts the music on that, or
www.peripheralelectronics.com for a direct adapter that will control the radio and charge it

is the fm modulator similar to some satelite radio hookups that broadcast a fm signal and you just tune to the fm frequency?

if those work good id be more tempted to go with it since i could use it in another vehicle if i wanted but with the direct adapter it would just be for that truck.

Drew please let me know what you decide to do. I'm on the same boat. I know they make some things that hook into the radio some how. I also know they are not cheap.

i installed a aux jack that cost $2.50 i basically hi jacking the xm so your ipod plays through the factory radio sounds great, no static. i found the instructions on alavanche forums. You do have to cut a couple of wires that go from the xm tuner to the factory radio.

its a direct piece, plugs right into the back of the radio, you just need to tap ignition and ground
