Dang, got me all excited until I saw the non-nav part. I have some aftermarket unit that the PO installed in mine and I hate it.

From what I have found, there are two model numbers that were used in 2008 for the shaker 500 radios. One is the early version 8R3T-18C815-GB which will have the button with the phone on it that states "mute". Also it will mute the radio. The sync unit will not work on this radio.

The other radio is model# 8R3T-18C815-GD which also has the button with the phone on it but does NOT say mute (it will display no phone when pressed, not mute the radio). These will work with the sync kit listed in this post. I'll be verifying this as my sync unit will be here tomorrow.

I have the early 2008 radio as it mutes the audio (and displays mute) when I press the phone button. I kind of figured that I had an early '08 as I have the old 2-piece spark plug heads.

Oh well, guess I will have to get a Pioneer 4400 with Bluetooth! LOL

Or you can buy a new OEM head unit for $149 which I think is the cheeper way to go.

Got an '09 and just hit the "buy it now" button. I'm a bit skeptical though seeing that this kit is 400+ elsewhere. But hell, its only 60 bucks. How wrong could it be?

I was reading throught the install instructions last night, before I passed out, and I'm curious what you plan to do for the programming?
According to the install instructions here: http://www.partscheap.com/v/vspfiles...nc_6-18-08.pdf you need to belong to some "PTS Application" to be able to program the Sync unit.
Are you betting on it coming pre-loaded with the current software?

I was going to give my local Ford dealership a call to see how much they'll rape, I mean take from to do the work.

I think that's only if you plan on using the Sync service. If your only going to use the hands free, there is no programing setup I believe.

I guess we'll find out soon enough, right?
I'm still going to call Ford for SnG's to see what they charge. Im no stranger to manual labor and those instructions are well put together so that should be pretty easy.

Yeah, worst case is they need to program it. My only concern is I have a custom tune. Not sure I trust these monkeys.
