It will physically fit but won't likely work because the 00-05 uses Class-II signaling and the 06+ uses CAN

idk nothing about that signaling but, as far as i understand a normal after market deck, pwoer is power, if you can get it powered, wired to speakers it should technicly run, but idk about it working with the factory amp, i suspect that's what he's talking about, but i really don't know nothing about factory decks, i genraly don't use them :-s might also not work with the steering wheel controls, that also might be what he speaks of?

You can't get it powered... there is no +12 accessory wire, it uses a digital message over the databus to turn on (just like the 00-05), but the databus format is different between the 00-05 and the 06+
