Default Want to install a Kenwood kdc-x998

I have a 2001 PT. I would like to install a Kenwood KDC-X998 head unit. I used to install a lot of stereos when I was in my teens (40 years ago!). What I'm concerned with is connecting up the speakers, I assume I'd be cutting off the factory connectors? Crutchfield sells a wiring harness but it looks to be a harness for the OEM radio which I want to take out. I was hoping I would not need to cut the factory harness out so I can take the new radio out when I want to sell car.

Am I stuck with "surgery"?

Look on E-Bay for adapter kits. Many of us have done this without cutting the factory wires. You may need to use the production date located in the drivers door area. Hopefully you have a 06 or newer 2001 Cruiser which would be an early 2002 production?
