Hey, welcome. I think you would just pretty much follow this until you got to where you need to be
Radio removal

Doesn't work. Try searching, but to give you a summary the 05-06 have one type of wiring harness on the back and 07+ are different. They can't be re-pinned either as that's been tried and just doesn't work.

Your best bet is to buy aftermarket. If it did work I would sell you my factory deck, because it's just sitting in my garage, I upgraded from the 07 base to the 07 w/ XM and MP3. On top of just replacing a stock deck, you need to go to a dealership and have them reprogram the deck to work. Each car's radio is programmed to ONLY work with that cars VIN...so a reprogram is in order and it will cost you at least $50 (I was charged $75 I think). So in all you'll be spending enough to justify an aftermarket head unit that will sound better and give you more features.
