Default 2 Questions for Metra Install

I'm going to install the Metra 99-5717 and a new headunit into a 2004.

Qu1: Apart from the speaker wires, are there any wires that require splicing ie are not plug and play?

Qu2: Crutchfield adds an antenna adapter to the order. Do I need this?

SomeguyinPDX503 is an unknown quantity at this point

Yes you need the antenna adapter. My 2001 has a non-standard antenna lead and a universal antenna cable would not fit. 2004 may be different, but I doubt it.
