Best $1,300 I have ever spent!!!

So after driving the truck around a little today after a wash and a wax to try and clean her up a little she makes some funny noises when the clutch is pushed in but hey 229K miles haha. Can't be too picky. Had to buy an air filter and some new wipers today. Got the Bosch Icon's. Well here are some pics of her cleaned up. What do you guys think? Not bad for $1,300 eh?

It just gives you control of when the AC cuts on. Basically an override switch to turn it off. Ford decided that the AC needs to be on on every position besides when you have the air blowing just on your face or feet.
