    Just finished installing a new head unit in my ’06 F150. I used your video as a guide on how to do it. I’m glad I saw your video, but you made it look deceptively easy. “Popping” the “surround” out was NOWHERE near as easy as you showed it to be. I nearly snapped the thing in half, but took my time and finally got it out (barely). You also skipped where you wire the harness to the radio, which took me forever. Otherwise, thanks because I probably wouldn’t have tried it without your video.

    i installed this same head unit in my own f150 but i couldnt figure out how to fill the gaps between the new unit since it is smaller, is there someone that sells a plastic bezel peice to fill it?

    Question: How did you power up the alpine sirius adapter? did you hook it up straight to the battery or did you connect it off the wire that is powering the head unit?

  25. motorztv Says:

    It gets its power from the Alpine HU so there’s only one power source needed!

    @philly224life If you have a double DIN stock stereo, I’m sure you can get a dash kit for it, probably from Crutchfield.

  35. motorztv Says:

    Google it. There are a lot of retailers that sell it!

  36. motorztv Says:

    It will if you have a double DIN and you can find a dash kit for it from Crutchfield

    did the back up cam come with the unit? if not what brand is it? i have a jvc in my f150 and want to set up the back up cam the same way you did but am having trouble finding one similar

  43. motorztv Says:

    the backup cam did not come with the head unit. It was an eBay purchase. I don’t recall what brand it was, but any of them should work just fine.
