The Vipers' Power, Hood Pin and the Tach wires go into the engine compartment, everything else is on the drivers side under the dash.  The XK532 will supply the door trigger signal for the Viper alarm.

Soldering is fun!

so i get the power from the battery? or from the ignition switch. please tell me which one it should be hooked up to, and how it should be hooked up. Right now I have a 4 gauge power wire going to a sub amp right now.

I believe the +12V constant at the ignition switch ( Light Blue/Red ) is too small in gauge to handle the Vipers current needs.  You could tap into the 4 gauge power amp wire if it is more convenient.   There are four +12V constant power wires from the Viper to connect.  I solder everything and either use heat shrink tube or Scotch Super 33+ electric tape to insulate.

Today I am going to start some basic mount and placement and pre wiring of some wires. And go to radio shack to get my shopping list:
*resistor pack (if cheaper then buying a 1k,100,30ohm resistors)
*30/40 amp SPDT automotive 5 pin relay
*1N4004 diode
Parts come in next monday or so UPS ground. I ordered a couple days ago.

ok look here: http://www.mediafire.com/?9c5iqm2f7lyq1o8
that is the xk532 install guide, it says I need two keys for programming. I only have one!
I don't believe my key is a special one like it has a chip in it, how do i tell if it does? I believe if i went to lowes, i could have them make a copy of the key for make $3 correct? And it should work. But why does the programming need two separate keys? Couldn't I essentially use the same key sense its not a chipped key?

Get your $3 key copy from Lowes and see if it will start your truck. If it does, then you don't have an immobilizer. If not, at least you got yourself a spare key to unlock your truck.
Or you can look for the light on your dash when you start. Usually looks like a Key or something.

Hopefully you don't have the transponder immobilizer system, of course the iDatalink module that was recommended on Page 1 of this thread will program with only one key.
