Unfortunately, it's not as simple as a crossover. Bose gets its name from making complete systems - meaning - Bose speakers work right because the amplifier is custom built for those speakers, and the deck is custom built for the amplifier- all Bose from beginning to end. The only way to bypass any part of a Bose system is to bypass the whole system, including amp, deck, subs, speakers, eq's, and start over from scratch, unless you are an electrical engineer and can meter components and evaluate them. Bose often has 1 or 1/2 ohm speakers which will not work with after market systems. If you go to a Bose store, the only system that sounds good is the lifestyle system because it is Bose from beginning to end, just as an example. They are either cheaters or geniuses

Are you trying to install a new stereo? If so will need to re-wire all your speakers because of the bose system.
And if im not mistaken your year truck might need a really expensive harness to install the radio. Here is a link to it.

Usually the LFE out is only a line out and is not amplified in any way, so first of all is your subwoofer self amplified or not? Cause if not, the LFE output won't be of much use to you. So if it's not self amplified you need an new amplifier to put between the receiver and the subwoofer. Any amp that supports RCA line-in input will do. Even a car stereo amplifier will work provided you can get a 12volt power supply to run it in the house. If the subwoofer is self amplified though, then all you need is to make an adapter cause none are readily available in stores to go from a RCA connector to 2 wires. You can buy a virgin RCA connector that you can wire yourself at The Source, Circuit City, or any electronics store you have locally, or if you have an old RCA to RCA wire you don't need anymore, you can just cut it in half, strip the 2 wires and you got you adapter right there.

It comes with special connectors - not necessarily special wire.
You will need the Lifestyle Cables.

If you're saying you hooked the Bose speakers directly to the Yamaha's amp instead of the prescribed way through their own bass module - they're cooked.
