2006 AM/FM/CD radio in a 1997?

I scored a nice OEM AM/FM/CD radio head unit recently and wanted to put it in my 1997 Sport. Well as you know, after 2003, the TJ got a mild face lift including some interior mods, subtle, but there. Not only does the middle bezel not fit with the new radio but the wire harness is completely different. My questions are:

A: Is there an easy way to get the 97-02 harness to fit the 03-06 harness. I want a neat installation and I don't really have room to get in there with a soldering iron.

B: Cosmetic wise, would a bezel from the 03-06 era fit in my 97?

I know what your thinking, why all the fuss with a OEM radio? Why not get a nice Kenwood and be done with it? Cause I really don't want my top or windows knifed for a radio.

Thanks in advance.

I was actually quite curious about this too. Except for the added outlet and switch location
