Not bad once you figure it out but Ford and Microsoft get an F- for the manual. And all day long, no radio. The truck is everything I wanted. The Bedrug is a padded, industrial carpet liner that is good for any use! I might upgrade the head unit. I don't know the first thing about pulling things apart in a truck. There is more than 1 power connection. I recently discovered this problem in my 2010 Lariat.
This underlined thing is a question: How many speakers does an 2011 F-150 ext cab super cab have? Remote start systems are one of our specialties. I'm sure there are ones that will output 6 channels. Would rather do one ten inch if possible though. Can someone tell me what to remove to access the bolts holding the radio in? The base speakers in the truck are actually not bad - it's the head unit that makes them sound as horrible as they do. I didn't even notice the Sync. Have had them look into it twice.
Double check all accessory fuses and radio fuses as well before. I pushed and pried mine with a flathead and it popped off with a little effort and went right back on. I thnk they are the entry level Power series 6x8s T1682. Use that to drive new speakers and toss in an 8 or 10 sub or two. Insert the slotted screwdriver in-between the dashboard and the vehicle.
The dash is not light and easily maneuverable so if you have help use them. I proceeded to work as normal and when I came out to go home I noticed that the right rear glass in the rear window was shattered. The stearing wheel controls will be tied into the new head unit which is cool. Steering wheel cotnrols are lost and the Synch system is history. All clips release with pressure.
I didn't think that Sync would be so unintuitive. Would rather do one ten inch if possible though. There was shatter glass in the passenger seat thank goodness my son was'nt setting there like normal. Within an hours drive, only 3. I might just power some subs and upgrade the stock speakers.
The other day it rained all day long. Only thing different is you dont have the upfitter switches to worry about. Checked all the fuses and they're good. There are a total of 12 clips securing the dashboard to the F-150. I have the nav package with the screen and I did not have to take it out. Steering wheel cotnrols are lost and the Synch system is history. This is a design flaw that could cause a serious accident.
The glass had shattered but was still in place. I didn't even notice the Sync. Have had them look into it twice. There are four screws for the cd player and four torx screws for the radio panel. I replaced the passenger side and I simply pulled the dash out far enough on the side where I was going to replace the actuator. But in the afternoon it was sunny and warm, and it turned on and worked fine. In retrospect, I'd go with some kick-ass 8's if I had it to do over.
The menu text is not consistent nor is the navigation behavior. And have the stock speakers driven by the stock head unit. No minus as it could be figured out without a manual in under 16 hours. Still intermittently drops left channel. My 2011 Ford F150 radio will not work. The menus are very inconsistent though.
I'm sure there are ones that will output 6 channels. They are a work of art. Upgrading the complaint to the next level with Ford. It is quite pathetic in terms of polish. Only thing different is you dont have the upfitter switches to worry about. My mechanical skills are above average, but I have never done such a project before.
All, I think I am just going to go balls deep. This section aids in troubleshooting and determining wire color codes, phasing for speaker hook up, locating power wires for installing external devices and add-ons. Most screws are the same but some are different and I found myself questioning where they go. And the intuitiveness is a F. The glass had shattered but was still in place. NutBucket, The local shop by me said they tried out the harness to keep the Xync system intact and he said it was a crappy solution that did not work well.
