|1990 GT-X||Even if you go to the junk yard and try and remove the sync system, that is impossible. the wiring is all part of the whole dash harness. and there are wires that go up to the mirror for the mic etc. To much work to try and install.|

Wow, I would have thought it to be more complex to add cruise control to the car.
On a side note, SYNC is awesome. It wasn't on my priorities list but it just so happened the car I zero'd in on had it. It's really convienent! lol. If you paid 14k for a 3+ year old focus I hope it had really low miles and/or a really good warranty!

|Miller88||I do find the high rear belt line and small rear window to be a bit of a PITA. I always use the mirrors (I have blind spot mirrors) for backing up.|

a reverse sensor system may run $200 to $300 as a rough estimate and maybe 1-200 to install at a shop.
instead of sync you can always get an aftermarket headunit with usb and bt built in it. cheaper and more reliable.
cruise you can buy a steering wheel with the cruise buttons on it. then all you have to do is install it and then take a it to a dealer to go in the computer and activate the cruise (only a dealer can do that).
not cheap to add all that, but def doable if you want it.

these are not must have's just would like to have :) I did not think they sold sync as a seperate unit, but I thought maybe I could pull one out of a junk yard, but it sounds like that is not possible, what I liked about sync was being able to talk hands free, the conrols on the steering wheel would be nice too. However, its all good if I cannot have it.
About the reverse sensors, I saw some ones that you drill into the bumper and some others that you stick on the inside of the rear bumper. I would like this because I only have sight in one eye and going in reverse is not fun, plus there is always kids running around not paying attention :)
badazz do you have the peak camera? I will look into that, I just figured sensors would be easier and cheaper.
Thanks again for all the help guys

As far as I know, Sync is not sold as an aftermarket setup. You would likely need to find a wrecked Focus that had Sync and take out all the hardware.
Better off buying an aftermarket in dash unit with bluetooth and usb.
