There are a few companies that make adapters to install aftermarket radios. Some of the Sync functions will be lost. At this point, I'm not sure that I am going to change it out (although I will miss the DVD playing feature and a visual map). I like the radio display and the sync intergration.
Sweet truck! Congrats!
I'm glad you like the EB. I've heard/ read lots of people first try the 5.0 ,and are quite happy,but the few that try the EB,likely are so much more impressed its actully and easy upsale.
As for your version of sync,there are 2 versions i believe . mine is the simpler version,not quite all the features but more than enough for what i want. Digital door locks are definetely nice for the times i have no place to carry keys. i lock em in ,hidden of course and go,then just key in number and walla...your in. Would i do this all the time??no ,but it has its benefits.
As for the throaty growl. There are quite a few exhaust upgrades,which mostly all make them noisier to whatever degree. I'm trying to find one that upgrades power,is all Stainless and Doesn;t increase noise too much or then I,m never gonna hear the end of it as my wife Drives the truck more than i do. Also muffler choice will dictate as well.
Doh! Everyone's upgrading, you guys are making it tough to keep the 07'!
I had to get something new before the end of the world. So, effectively it won't cost me anything and I will enjoy a new truck for a week.
If, on the outside chance the world doesn't end, I'm keeping the economy going before we fall over the fiscal cliff.
Love it. Loving my 2012 Ecoboost.. just hit 1500 miles.. tows like a Dream. I spend some time in a 250 with Powerstroke at work and had really thought hard about that for my truck.. but couldnt stomach $4 gal gas and size. I was NOT disappointed when i towed a few weeks ago!
I was at the dealer a couple weeks back and looked at the new 13 Eco-Boost but i didnt drive it. I really liked all the changes they made since my 06 version i had.
I just coudlnt bring myself to step back into the smaller F150 again. I was very tempted but just coupldnt do it yet.
Now they have an ALL NEW 2013 Dodge Ram 2500-3500 out and its shweet
2014 will being out the new Chevy D Max rigs
I expect the F250-F350 will get interior and Bodt reword for 2015
I will upgrade around that time just not sure if i will stay with F series or actually go Ram. I have really liked the Ram trucks body styling since they redid it in 2010. Now with new interior and finally a new drive train, im really liking them more and more
Looks like some big improvements for the Ram. A few I remember off the top of my head..
Aisin tranny now available in 2500 and 3500 trucks, if you have ever beat the you know what out of a Toyota you know they are bomb proof, been available in the heavy duty ram 4500 and up trucks for years.
A stronger hydroformed frame and three power options in the cummins based on the three tranny options.
A different front axle disconnect for better mileage, also the 3500 4x4 only will get a new 3 link (I think?) front suspension.
And it's already got styling people like. I think things are looking up for them . I've always loved the cummins just not everything else that came with it.
