The only problems I'm seeing with the ACV kit are the following:

-Lost steering wheel controls (right control pad for stereo) only. Apparently the stalk interface that came with the kit did not work, according to memphis.
-Lost ability to easily change date on upper display. Not a big deal.

The following issues have been resolved in my mind.
-Hazard/lock button can be purchased and installed on the ACV kit. Ford part #1519127
-There are 2 harnesses - 1 for the stereo, and 1 for the hazard/lock button.
-Adapter harness comes with the ACV kit.

I am pretty much ready to order the ACV kit but I'd like to take apart my dash first to verify everything. And I need to find a good double din headunit.
