    I put in an audiovox with a flash logic by pass. I also invested in the part so I can call the truck for remote start, lock, unlock etc. I probably spent 50 hours reading and 5 hours installing. Probably about $350 invested total plus my time.

    I have had CompuStar systems in the past. Best there is out there IMO.

    Just looked up the specific items I installed -

    APS 905 Remote Start - Ebay $120
    FlashLogic FLDL1 - Amazon for $43
    Carlink ASCL100 Telematics Interface (w/free service for 3 yrs) - Ebay for $69

    Plus misc. wire, connectors, etc. So more like $250 invested. But oh, the time. If I hadn't already had my dash apart 50 times for various installs along with having a path through the firewall from having done my plow install, I could easily see spending 20+ hours on the install itself. Definitely something you really have to want to get involved with yourself, otherwise well worth the investment of a professional install.
