No sir, I sure don't. I have never posted a video on YouTube before. It sounded REAL good though. Took first at the one, and only, competition that I competed in though

clayhegar I ended up going with the Kenwood DMX706S with the Datalink module. It allowed me retain my steering wheel functions, and with the stock speakers it sounds pretty dang good. The Kenwood has a pretty neat features that allows you too get certain vehicle information right on the screen. If you aren't concerned about DVD or CD, go with the shallow, it allows you to get everything behind the head unit.

The web is really not good on help.

the 2011 up trucks use canbus to turn the radio on from the bcm. you either have to manually run a ign wire to the red or get a canbus adapter like a maestro to use the canbus signal.

beaureed445 Interesting topic. I currently have a '12 with Nav/ Sync, Sony speakers (all stock). No real complaints, but I'm looking at a '16 with the same system, and thinking about upgrading the speakers and maybe sub. I actually like the display/ head unit, so I'm going to keep that stock.

You will love it, make sure to go into your settings in your old stereo before removal and turn off Bluetooth or sync will stay on and interfere with your new stereo
