Long story short, even with a subscription to the TIS system showing all of the wiring diagrams I was not able to sort out the wiring for the connections to the JBL setup. I bought this magical device, reconnected *every one* of the wires I had cut previously to the factory harness and all I can say is wow! Everything worked. Thank you PAC!!
After using it for a week, I started the truck in the morning and no sound. The radio was working fine, but no sound was coming through. Later that day, it was working again. A week later, same thing happened, though this time the sound didn't mysteriously come back. I pulled the dash apart again and determined that it was one of the plug in connectors for the Pac Tato. I took two cable ties and wrapped them around the unit so it holds the plug in connector very tightly. So far so good, but it has only been a week since I made the fix.
Overall impressions: This makes for a very easy and reversible install. Without it, I would have had to run wires back to where the remote amp sits under the rear seat and manually splice the wires. With this unit, you do all your wiring at the table or bench and then its a plug and play install. Downsides are that this kit has several boxes and wiring harnesses and connectors that have to be shoved into your dash and you may not have as much room as I did in a full size truck. It also relies on using the 4 pre-amp outputs from the radio rather than the speaker outputs. The audio volume does not seem as loud as it could be, even when I set the dip switches on the interface box for max volume. Its fine for me, but some kid wanting to make his trunk lid thump may be disappointed. And finally, the issue with the intermittent connector causing problems should be something the folks that make it should do more research into.
Update: I still have this unit and have been using it now for going on two years and it still flakes out every so often necessitating me pulling the radio out from the dash (a 5 min operation, I have gotten so good at it) and pulling one or both connectors off the unit and putting it off and on several times to wipe the contacts. Usually it behaves itself for several months after that, but not always. One of these days when I have some time I am going to run some wires directly out of the radio back to the speakers and overide the amp back there for good. Probably will improve the sound as well since the amp in the pioneer head unit is more powerful than the one under the back seat that is factory. This does make for an easy install, but it does suffer from some limits in input signal (over a certain level I can here the signal being clipped) and its just a PIA to have to go for a day or two before I can get to fixing it again and again.
