    I am interested in both upgrades I just got a Gen1 and not super impressed with the Sync2 and I have a friend at a stereo place if I need him. I also want to change out my wheel, its kinda worn out.

    So, if you have upgraded your Sync2 to Sync3 and the Gen2 raptor steering wheel, does everything work except the heated wheel?

    Also, my sync2 backup screen doesn't show me what direction I am turning, the lines are just straight on the screen, is that normal on sync2?

    Thanks in advance!

    I have done both the Sync 3 and steering wheel

    Here is the info on the steering wheel:

    I would check eBay for the parts. I found everything except for the steering wheel controls a lot cheaper than retail. The list/links that are in the thread are for brand new and gets pretty pricey.

    Here is the info on the Sync 2 to Sync 3:

    Again eBay is where most are going and finding pullouts on the inexpensive side.
    And YES, everything works just as stock.

    As far as the parking lines go, they stay straight on the Gen 1’s. Sync 2 or Sync 3, its all the same.

    Thanks man. I did see both those threads they are really helpful. IIR there is a guy on eBay and on the F-150 site that reprograms the Syn3 using your vin. Did you get one from a seller like that?

    That was probably to one screw up in spending money. They are expensive compared to buying a used one and programming it yourself. On the flip side everything was plug and play and haven’t had any issues what’s so ever. I think the whole Sync 3 install took me an hour and I’m picky with not scratching anything up.
