Im with you. If domestic guys couldnt get a handle on how to integrate these units in our rigs and make them play nice, I wouldnt spend my hard earned cheese on something a world away. It does look nice though.

so back to the original question is it possible to upgrade the 4.3" MF screen to the 8" MFT screen without nav on my 2014 XLT SCRW? after looking at it on ford parts it looks like the only different part numbers are the screen and bezel. does this mean all i have to do is swap the screen and bezel?
