Don R's 2004 Ford F350

I started my Crutchfield career as a product advisor. I fielded thousands of customer questions about A/V equipment, designing systems for homes, cars, and the occasional party bus. Do that for eight years, and you begin to understand what people really want from their gear. You also get a lot of hands-on experience with the latest products. That's one of the coolest things about working here. As a writer, I enjoy translating technical jargon into easy-to-understand language. My goal is to make shopping for speakers and amplifiers simple. After all, this stuff is supposed to be fun! Outside of work, I enjoy playing and teaching music. I'm always on the lookout for interesting left-handed guitars.

    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!
