Aftermarket Nav in a 2011 F150 XLT

My wife's new 2011 F150 XLT should be here in a couple of days. It has the stock radio (no nav, sync or anything else). Anyone have a pic of an aftermarket nav head unit in a 2009-2011 F150? I just want to know what the install kit looks like with the head unit installed. I know some of the install kits look like a very bad after though once installed.

THANKS.

Ok, I got the Alpine Nav unit installed today and now the display above the stereo displays:

F150
BUILT FORD TOUGH

All the time and it annoys the $&*#^ out of me. Anyone know of a way to get rid of this?

Nope but after a day or so I dont even notice it.

I would look at the scorche dash kit, it is more sturdy than the others and it doesnt have any weid gaps and has a really nice fit around my HU. It is so good of a fit that I didnt even need to use the HU trim ring that came with the HU.

I don't have either which is also driving me crazy. The sync is no big deal because the new alpine has Bluetooth but not having the steering wheel controls makes me NUTS! I inked the deal on the truck before it got to the dealer, I will not make that mistake again. I'm working on a deal right now to trade it in after only 3 weeks!


I went from a 09 F350 King Ranch with everything to the XLT with nothing and I must say since Ford has added so many trim packages over the last few years the XLT must be the new XL! What in the hell was I thinking?
