I believe I read somewhere that it's mounted above the instrument cluster. If you're upgrading it will work just fine above the radio!

Depends on the year. I know for '08 it's part of the Sirius antenna that's roof mounted.

It depends on the year. I know for '08 it is. Now keep in mind if you do NOT have nav, your Sirius antenna does not have the GPS antenna in it. I just did a nav upgrade and had to replace my roof antenna as it incorporates the GPS antenna with the Sirius.

Sounds like 08 is when they made the switch to the intagrated one then. Guess I better go back to the just yard and see if I can dig one up.

It's not much from Ford. Mine was roughly $100 Canadian from the dealer; although my friend works there so I got a discount.

On my '06, they are separate antennas . . the Nav antenna is in the space above the radio, the Sat antenna I put under the plastic cowl by the wipers.
