Done!

Have to update again after I install some seats that'll outlast a tank of fuel.

Finished doing the Cruise Control install. Took it for a test drive and it doesn't work.


Gotta do a better job on the VSS (vehicle speed sensor) feed?

Done. Job not as complete as I wanted.


Fell short on the seats. The retail junkyards don't have too many 2010 and earlier F-series Super-Duty (found 2) and both had trashed seats. So, I found some slip covers at Auto Zone that fit well and give not-vinyl seating surfaces.


Everything else is nice-ish:
- The modern radio includes CD, but the "Sirius-XM Ready" on the side of the box means I could by the auxiliary tuner kit.
- The cruise control works great!
- Cleaned the dash while it was off for the radio install. Cleaned the lens over the instrument cluster as well.
- Cleaned the inside of the windows along wit the top of the dash
- Got most of the caked-up, dried-out grease off the steering wheel.


The totally subjective gas mileage has improved. It used to seem like I could watch the gas gauge drop as I was driving. No it only changes position from time-to-time.


Ready to haul for the upcoming weekend!

Cool, nice to see an old soldier rehabbed and getting upgraded duty. Don't know if it looks much different from the before photo, but a couple of "after" snaps might be nice...

No noticeable exterior differences. Still almost as pretty as Stephen Hawking!



There will be interior pix. Once I get home in daylight.

What tin?!?!?!

That is the cheapest damn plastic excuse for an auto-darkening helmet I have ever borrowed.

Actually, my avatar is an expression of my idea of a sense of humor. It is a totally sarcastic image. A selfie (notice the off to one side and slightly raised position of the camera for the most flattering portrait) that is clearly not a selfie (no face).

'After Pix'

PIX!!!!


As mentioned, no noticeable exterior changes:



Seat covers that should allow our butts to outlast a tank of gas:



A modern radio (I got fooled on the packaging, the Sirius-XM tuner is an additional accessory):


And the other 'little things" that Ford didn't include at the factory:




Cruise Control:
(Aw frack! I forgot to take that photo)



All set and ready to tow for hours on end!
