Yes thanks. I'd love to see the deathstar up close to see all of the hard work that you've put into it. What happened to it for you to rebuild it from the ground up?

Dash looks great! You have any pictures of how the lower dash went together?

Actually I bought 2 wrecked X's and made one good one out of it. Why, you may ask? Money... i couldn't afford to buy one outright at the time so I got these on the cheap and made one good one! Plus I have the satisfaction of knowing I did everything on it...

I don't but strokersace has the pics in his gallery - that's where I got the idea. Here: 2002 Ford F350 4x4 - Upfitter Install

Mine installed about the same, but with the glovebox you have to trim in a couple different spots (alongside where it closes)

Looks good! I noticed the aftermarket electronic gadget on the top left corner of the dash. I really like that mount, and the way it really fits in with the dash - can you tell me what it is and where to get it? I have a satellite radio receiver that I would like to mount like that.

Thanks,
Ted

I like the steering wheel. Maybe someday. :-)

NICE JOB! You must have a lot of patience!!

I bought a steering wheel w/audio controls for my 2003 a while back. Haven't had the time to fool with it but I was wondering if you know whether the proper wiring is there to support the controls even though the original wheel does not have them?

Again; great job on the install!!

Bravo - your Ex looks amazing! Kudos for going at it 100% and doing all the cutting you were doing, as it is a one way street after that.

Quesiton - what is the module you have next to your A-Pillar?

Cheers,

I'm not sure on that one. I believe other members on this forum have installed one and had the audio controls work. My truck already had steering wheel controls so mine is not a good example.

Update - here are some pics of the cutting I had to do behind the dash. had to pull the shroud off this weekend to do some wiring so I thought I'd take the pics that I forgot last time. You can see my creative stereo mounting brackets and one vent had to clipped to clear the original outlet. the other two seem to line up fine.

Also installed the '03+ grab handle on the driver's A-pillar while it was apart.

Very nice, I'm jealous. Do you have a parts list that you used? I read through but may have missed it, do your steering wheel audio controls work with the nav system?

Thanks for the compliment!
No I don't have a parts list. Are you looking for the OEM parts or the stereo/Nav stuff I used (or both)? I'll try to get a list together, good idea for those interested...

And yes, my wheel controls work with the Alpine unit. But I had to buy and install an adapter module and program it to make the buttons work. it was pretty easy really.

The whole list if you can. Some of us are not creative, and can only imitate others, rather than invent our own. If I have a pile of parts and know it can go together, I can get it together. However I have a difficult time creating something from nothing, which is what you did, and a really desirable skill.

Very nice...all of it. I've always wondered how this would look in an Excursion and now I know.
