Have you ever installed an aftermarket stereo before? You need an adapter harness about 99% of the time. They are usually $5-9. You might need other sort of cable adapters for the antennae (good time & GPS). It is extremely rare to find a true “plug & play” aftermarket stereo.

Metra probably makes what you need, but splicing everything together can be tedious.
The adapter harness will include connectors to mate with the car's harness. You need to splice those on to the harness that came with the new head unit.
You should not have to (and should never) cut the wiring in the car.

If your factory system is JBL, that complicates things. Your head unit likely feeds an amplifier hidden under the seat or dash. It may be a digital amplifier, and likely is not compatible with the Snrubi head unit.

It is factory JBL, I haven’t installed an aftermarket head unit before. Would I still get the metra adapter for it? And which one would I get. Sorry I’m new to this stuff, Willing to learn but kinda stuck on how to progress.
