6 disc Cd head unit:
I just got a new 2005 F350 and I really really kinda want the FACTORY

unit, I like the way it looks, and think it also seems like a good
stereo with all the features I need.

My choice for adding bass is a amplified Bazooka tube.
Running one now in a '00 Sable wagon, fits just nice in the rear under floor
compartment and just tapped into the power & speakers in the rear panel
where the factory amp. is. Stock Mach system has no bass at all. Typical
weak Ford sound system.
