Circuit City installation dept has the tool. They won't sell you the tool, but they undid mine for free.

Try Crutchfield. I have used them for many years. They have good prices. They sometimes have good clearence or scratch and dent items. They include everything needed to change the radio in the Truck. Wire harnesses, tools for removing the radio, kit to make the new radio fit properly and clear instructions. Swapping mine was as easy as lego.
