    Has anyone put a LCD in a Ford Expedition DASH?

    I was just wondering bacause I am getting ready to do it. I think a 7" would fit nicely where the stock radio is. I'd like to go to a 10.4" but that would require major work...

    I dont remember if the Expedition radio bezel and all is the same as the explorer or not. But i did put one in my Explorer Sport trac, and it looks pretty good. I put the 7.2 inch on in. Let me know if its the same, and i will send you a pic.

    Expedition has totally different dash than Explorer. DDT mounted a 10.4" in his F150 supercrew which has the same dash as the Expedition. Explorers shares the same dash as the Rangers.

    I have a 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew and it has the same dash as the expedition. I actually put an Expedition console in my truck. Here is a picture of the current state. I tried to used Wood filler instead of bondo and it did not turn out to well. Looks okay, but I need to finish. My advice would be to spend the $70 as I did and buy the dash surround piece so that you don't mess up the original. I learned my lesson on the Taurus that I used the first time. Ford makes factory match plastic spray paint. It is AWESOME!!!. It is well worth the $14 a can. I painted the entire center console and it looks great. Let me know if you have any questions.

    johnram, let me just say that the install looks great. One question though, i have an 03 f150 supercrew now and would like to do exactly what you did, but where did you put your reciever after you put the screen where it was?

    I bought a used Expedition Console off of ebay and changed the top of it to one that was made to have rear AC controls and widened the opening. Here is a pic.

    I paid $150 for the console and $70 for the other top and about $50 for the paint that I used to factory match the color.

    I used the Cappacuino PC in the center console. Let me know if you have any other questions.
