Default Replace factory radio with factory radio...

My issue is with the single line display on my 08 ranger. Is there a factory radio I can plug and play that has multiple lines?

Would I be able to use the radio from a 2011 Edge (the MyFord touch radio0 with minimal modification?

No. Your best bet is to buy a new aftermarket double din size Pioneer with variable colors, aux and usb input, ipod/iphone/android control. Way better quality than stock, and they look good.

No it will not. But you just run a new one real fast through your 3rd brake. I run those in 5 minutes. Or put it in front and run the wire in the windshield trim. Easy either way...longer up front though

You can use the same account though. If you get one of those double DIN they all come with a new antenna.

You can also do a fold out. Install the kit upside down and the screen will clear enough. Or they do make ones that fold down too...
