 The ford antenna relocate kit works fine for 2022 and sync 3 trucks.  The new 2023 sync 4 trucks have a different set of wires for the gps antenna.  the sync 4 antenna uses two wires from the antenna to the low noise amplifier on the back wall of the truck. I removed the headliner to install dynamat sound reducer.  I moved the antenna to the front of the cab. I made a coaxial extension for all the wires from the antenna to the back of the cab.  The antenna wires are rg 74 size.  The wires at the back of the cab are rg 58.  So you need to buy two different size sma connectors and 3 pieces of rg 74 coaxial cable 60 inches long.  It was a difficult job to move the antenna and install the dynamat.  It is also hard to get at the radio.  There are two 10 mm bolts that are hidden 4 inches deep in a slot behind the 12 inch screen.  Use a magnetic tool to hold the bolts.  The 2023 are different from the 2022.  But U tube will get you started.

So I just tackled this issue on my 2022 F250 Super Duty


1. Found where the roof antenna was connected to the line into the back of the SNYC 3 unit. It is actually on the driver side back corner of the roof. If you remove your coat hanger hook then pop out headline then pop away the plastic around your seat belt you'll see it and the GPS antenna. The [Purple] is for GPS. Leave that in place. The [Curry] pea-green one is the SiriusXM antenna.





A small clarification on this post:  On these connections- the purple/pink colored connection is for the primary modem/cell tower antenna (20-22 F250's).  The pea-green/curry/mustard colored connection is for the Sat radio & GPS antenna.  It goes through a splitter under the dash, which separates out the sat radio feed from the GPS feed.  Just wanted to make sure people understand what they will be affecting here.
