Joshua honed his knowledge of home audio/video gear during an 8-year stint as a Crutchfield Advisor. He can talk tech with the best of them, but he lives for the emotional experience of music. He brings that outlook to his writing, and to his side gigs as a folk guitar player and music teacher. He stays active by chopping firewood and exploring our national parks.

    Eric, This article has been up for quite a while, so we probably won't hear anything back from Don. If you have an F-350 and you're thinking about upgrading the stereo system, you can use our vehicle selector to see what fits your truck and get some info on what you'll need for the installation. When you're done, send us some pics and we'll add your truck to the Showroom!
