Technically it can be done, I wouldn't want to get into popping speakers with you at this point, so I'll give you a link and let me know if you've made any progress before we continue... http://www.metraonline.com/

All I need really I guess would be a diagram of the wiring for the Alpine Stereo which wires are what and then I can figure it out from there I have a diagram for the Ford I just don't know which one of those would connect to on the Alpine Stereo

Excellent, in which case I would suggest modifiedlife.com or the12volt aside from generic diagram searches online... dealer databases are complicated to say the least. Its essentially free information, do you have any diagnostic equipment?
