update on this thread!
I was kind of missing the Bluetooth connection for my cell phone so I bit the bullet and went over to Best Buy and got a radio. Went with JVC KD-R990BTS I had my plans for this one or for the Pioneer which was out of stock so JVC is
So I was also wondering with the old radio why the back speakers does not work but that was not why I replaced the radio but now that I have a new radio in place I think I know why the rear speakers weren't working. Lol
Couple things I learned the Ford radio tools really do work took about 30 seconds to pop the old radio out took me about an hour to reconnect all the wires to the new harness for the new radio but I've done there been there done that on other vehicles.
I did find that the metal sleeve since snapped into place perfectly and a new radio fits that perfectly and the trim ring fits perfectly where the old Ford radio fit so it looks like a factory install!

Good choice! I bought a jvc head unit about 7 years ago and haven't had any problems at all. Kicker makes factory sized speakers that sound pretty damn good and aren't all that expensive.

I just fired up the rear speakers! $30 kenwood set and they're fine. the truck sounds like it has a subwoofer! I'm impressed! Now I'm learning this radio, has so many settings it's confusing.
