Thanks guys. Glad you enjoyed it.

Started a new job...very excited about it. I'm actively hunting for a new daily driver, which The Express has devolved into (nothing wrong with it as a daily...I enjoy driving it, but I'm wearing it out). Hope to have something in the next few months, and have her indoors for the winter. Then I can start to address a mounting list of issues she has.

This weekend, LOF, and inspect the RF tire for possible replacement (an crazy driver chased my butt off road over a curb a year or so back, and I suspect it has a broken belt).

She's got more work to do before winter though. At least one more trip south towing, and a trip in September towing.

OutlawZ, the radio came from ebay...I "believe" it came from this seller, but don't make me swear to it.

Thanks for the info! He has a couple different options i am seriously going to consider. It will be a great way to add the ability to listen to an ipod or iphone to my Astro!

You could always install an inline modulator that plugs directly into the antenna, and either put an AUX wire jack in the dash from it, or a Bluetooth adaptor. I did this on a crown vic I had that had a very basic am/fm radio and it worked awesome. I didn't want to change the head unit out, so this was the best option.

Great info as well. The other reason i want to change my head unit out is because all of the bulbs are burned out in it so it is dark all the time at night. So i figured going to a head unit like his would solve that problem and add extra capability to my van at the same time.
