After reading A LOT of post about which harness to get nothing really was clear to me about the best thing to do. So this is my plan and I would like feedback if this would work right or not, or the best option that I might have missed.
Ok, i bought a pioneer avh-x4500bt HU, I have onstar but not currently activated and don't really plan on it, and I have steering wheel controls. No Bose, no amplifier, no stock Bluetooth or camera. So all I want to do it have my steering wheel controls work and keep all chimes and dings.

So I'm thinking this for SWC:
Metra Axxess ASWC Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface (Black) (Old Version)

And this for chimes:
Pac C2R-GM11 11-Bit Interface Radio Integration Adapter for 2007 GM Vehicles with No Onstar System
http://amzn.com/B000VAOILG

Does this make since to do and will this work? Decent reviews on the SWC by metra and not much on the PAC c2r. What have y'all done? I've been rattling my brain about all this I just want to install it but I want it to work right. Any answers/suggestions will help. Thanks guys!

Even though our trucks are a little different, I just finished installation of a Pioneer X5500BHS double din head unit over the weekend. I will eventually get enough time and make a thread on the install.
Here is what I bought from Crutchfield. Everything works as advertised and was very easy to install. I am especially stoked with my back-up camera! You may want to look at Crutchfield. They have awesome customer service.

How do I know if I have a 11 bit connector or a 29 bit connector? This might be the one I need- PAC C2R-GM29 29-Bit Interface for GM 2007 Vehicles with No Onstar System

Also found a better SWC for pioneer- SWI&PS - PAC Steering wheel control interface for Pioneer and Sony NEW Version 1.6.8 with Bluetooth

Thoughts?
