Question Help Finding Wire Harness

Hi there, I'm new here.
I have a 2008 Compass with all the factory audio equipment but I want to install an after market head unit. I have everything I need including the head unit(Pioneer), Antenna, Plastic frame (forgive my terminology), and all the cables except for the Wire harness.
I've looked all over but cannot be sure what I need. Some places have them for $20 while Best Buys wants almost $80.
Can anyone point me in the correct direction? I don't want to overpay(obviously) but I also want to be sure that get what I need.

Smile Thanks!

Awesome! Thats just what I needed!
Out of curiosity, do you know why some vehicles require this kind of harness vs the the standard $15 ones you would find at Walmart? I understand it has something to do with the Door chimes and security but never could find much info on it other than that.
Thanks again!
