Yes plastic rear inner fender liner. They are an option. More "decontenting" cost cutting I assume - along with the underhood light, cigar lighter and socket, footwell lights, console tray, console and glove box lights, cup holders, change holder, etc.

Yeah, they cut costs for sure, No onstar this time around and a plain radio-am/fm No CD Player or Aux input. I saw a factory radio on ebay for $165.00 but then found out that since I dont already have XM I would have to get the module and antenna too. More than likely at this point going to put in an Alpine with XM Radio built in and run the Sat antenna with a Magnetic mount. I discovered that I have a trans oil cooler today, Called and canceled that out of my order and am getting bed rail liners instead. The rest of my stuff should be in this week as well. I think I will go post on another part of the forum to see how many others have installed their own radios.

Got any pictures? Radio is an easy swap. Put a 6 disc player in mine.

I will take a note to look at my rear. Have not thought of it I know they are in the front because I have to snap a side back on but your prob right that they are not in the back . I dont even think they are on the back of a 1991 ford f250 or 2000 f350 on the rear
