Default Help! 2006 Limited aftermarket stereo replacement

OK, I need a bit of help. I've been searching the forum for over an hour and can't find a definite answer. I'm looking to replace the stock stereo with an aftermarket one. The stock is the REF. Do I need to use a canbus adapter harness or is there another way? I don't have navigation, backup camera or anything else like that if that helps.

The only issue is going to be power for the stereo.

If you go to this webpage at Crutchfield, you can read about it.

The adapter for my 2007 PT is this one:

The antenna adapter is this one:

There's a thousand bezel adapters. This one's got a cubbie.

Great advice all around and I agree with an extra bit of information. That cubby adapter is great except for the clip-in front bezel.

I bought all the same pieces you mentioned and everything works great. But I needed to actually glue that bezel piece in place because it's only held in with (2) tiny clips.
