http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2008-FOR ... 643wt_1201

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2008-FOR ... 606wt_1028

It depends on your existing factory setup. Rather than e-bay, I would try metraonline, or Crutchfield for your research. Then, you can go back to e-bay for purchasing if you like.

I've been researching the same topic on my other Ford. Crutchfield stated I needed a $129 PAC wiring harness/adaptor thingy which retains all the factory features. However, according to metra, I could retain all the features I want (factory sub, aux input, etc.) by using a couple of their harnesses = ~ $30.

sweet. thanks. i looked on metra and found the part number for what i needed...after looking it up on ebay its only 65. just doesnt support factory amps and such. but i dont have them anyways. it does include the vss wire and retain the rap. so looks like this is the one i personally need. thanks again.
