HU wiring harness help anyone?

So I'm finally fed up w/ the weak OEM HU and I have to upgrade. My only question is, is there any wiring harness that allows you to keep the stock climate control but put an aftermarket HU in the cubby below? So you retain the climate and clock, but lose the audio control up there. Thanks guys.

There is a cheap Metra kit that comes with an adapter harness to bypass the OEM HU without losing climate control. It replaces the cubby on the dash under the stereo. I have this kit as well as numerous other members. It is relatively easy to install, if you've done some interior work before.

If you're fed up with weak sound, you should be looking to an Amp and nice speakers, not a new headunit.

I have the amp and nice speakers, the HU has a number of downsides that I can't deal with. Thanks apollon, I found that thing, I apparantly didnt search hard enough the first time, or just plain overlooked it.
