Icon10 Ordered a new Stereo for my Ranger.

Was looking for a new stereo for my Ranger. Just happen to find this one on Crutchfield.com for a really good price...

Sony MEX-BT3000P CD receiver at Crutchfield.com

Included the install kit, removal tool, wiring harness, and free tech support. It's been almost 10 years since I installed an aftermarket stereo in a vehicle. But I'm sure it will go smoothly. Can't wait to get it.

I was planing on just keeping the factory CD player in my truck, but the Volume **** has been slow to respond while in use. Very annoying. And this way I'll have bluetooth calling for my smartphone, and controls for my pandora radio.

That sucks. It's internet radio you stream from your computer or smart phone. This deck can control the app that's on my note 2. It's pretty sweet. Stereos have come along ways in the last 10 years. I remember a pioneer deck I had in college and I thought it was fancy... lol

Ordered new speakers for the truck. Should see them Tuesday or Wednesday hopefully. Rockford Fosgate 6x8" Power T1682...



Should sound pretty good with 4 of these in that regular cab...

Got the Rockford Fosgate speakers installed in the doors tonight. Holy crap! These things are loud! I can't wait to get the second set for behind the seat. That little regular cab will be rocking!
