Not yet, but then I only have it for a couple months.

My pet peave with my 11 loaded Lariat cw with Nav and Ford's joke of a premimum sound system is the actual amps and speakers in this thing. They are the cheapest made in China junk that Ford could find and this in a 65,000 truck (all 4 5x7's in the doors and the complete sub enclosure with amp weigh less than the new 8" Pioneer subwoofer I put in the factory enclosure. So my 1 and only mod is getting rid of everything sound related except the Nav unit and putting in a PAC audio interface unit along with JBL door speakers a new Pioneer shallow sub driver and a Rockford Fosgate 250 Watt Sub amp and a Rockford Fosgate 75wx4 main amp. It's not going to shake the world but at least it will sound better than the entry level system in my Escape when I am done. At least Ford had the decency to correct this error in the 13's with the new Sony system and I really hope they fired the bone head who spec'd the system in the 11's and 12's.

I want to replace the factory speakers and head unit. But can't find anyone who has researched to see what will fit.

The dash opening is a double DIN so pretty much any of the available DD nav units will fit. PAC audio makes the interface units to interface the unit inot the factory wiring without hacking everything up and depeneding on how serious you want to get well you can put enough power in these things to blow the windows out of them if you want to throw that much $$$ at them.

I would join a site like Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums - Ford truck and SUV owners and enthusiasts Community And Information Source. as there are many people who have gone down the road you want to travel.

Honestly I would recommend building one yourself. Did this with my 2010 250 and had 2 10" fosgates in a sealed box behind the passenger side and a fosgate 2 channel (ran subs in series so it was running in mono mode) behind the driver side rear seat. Much cheaper and sounded great.

While not a 2013, my 2012 F450, I have put Firestone Riderite's in and onboard Viair 10007 compressor the Reese signature 18K 5th wheel hitch a LineX bed liner weathertech floor liners dual color GT seat covers and (forget brand) the smoked Window Deflectors and headrest DVD players for the kids.

I may change out the front speakers with a pair I already have but the stock pretty much sucks as was mentioned above. I will say the nav had a big improvement with the new 13's that's for sure. WAY more usable!

I have not had any issues with the drive train/exhaust but I only have 4k on the truck and only use it for camping/family outings.

I do really like the truck though.

Knowing what is going on is nice, but monitoring 4 egt sensors does nothing, I would add a probe at the manifold and then you will have a real reading of your exh temp, but in factory trim you really do not need it, add a programmer and everything changes...
