I noticed that you have as added option "Insulation to the cab".  Would you mind sharing more about that option.  Thanks - John

I would go with the light hickory wood, I am getting sick of the dark cherry......Ron G.
I can relate to your comment.  Back in 2007 when we were picking out interior colors, my wife Irene really wanted the cherry.   I much preferred the maple only to save the money but Irene said the cherry looked so rich.  With the florescent lighting of the era, neither wood tickled me so it was easy for me to agree to.

Today I feel good with our cherry cabinets since I changed from florescent to LED lighting.  One day I may splurge and change out the dated brass hardware to brushed stainless.  It just has not yet bothered me enough to make the change.  A real good local hardware sale just might inspire me to get going.

More insulation everywhere!   Cab in particular, floor, doors, front cap.  Go with the double pain windows, e-450 chassis, forget the in dash navigation.  I would go with the light hickory wood, I am getting sick of the dark cherry, see if they offer a theater set up for the sofa seating, slide is a must.  I do like the ladder but no roof rack approach.  Full body paint looks super but it sure is a lot of money just for looks.  I would have PC install any and all suspension upgrades you can afford, new shocks, front and rear stabilizers, trac bar.  Guess that is it from my perspective.  Ron G.

There are adapters for the older E-350-450 as well as the new models just order the right one.  Very easy installation.  Go for it!  Ron G.

Interesting post RonG.  We listen to our Ford dash radio playing CDs often when on the road and I agree with you in that the sound quality could be better.  Your solution seems easy & affordable.  I especially like the simple no-mod replacement they offer.

I need to research if our older door panel design of 2007 uses the exact same speaker & connector as the current-day 2009 to 2016.

Thank you!

As I stated in my cab soundproofing post I installed new Infinity speakers when I had the door panels off.  I have now fine tuned the radio and I can tell you the sound quality has been significantly improved.  The Infinity speakers (model # 6832cf) are and exact match to the Ford OEM ones, they come with a build in adjustable tweeter and have great base sound.   Amazon sells them for $99.00 and I would suggest you get the little plug adapters for another $7.00 for the pair so you do not have to cut anything.  There is a super Youtube video that shows how to get the panels off and install the new speakers easily.  There are only 4 screws holding the door panel on and it then lifts up and out, I would suggest you might want to purchase a pry tool from a local automotive store ($7.00) for use on the  power window panel that utilizes those little fasteners, the tool just makes the job so much easier.   best of luck, it is worth the hour of labor for sure.   Ron G.
