I wanted to convert my apx7000 into an xe. I figured it will cost me about 250. I know for the most part is just a cosmetic change. What is your opinion. Is it worth it?

The real question should be, Is it worth it to you?

I am unsure. 250 is not bad, bad yet again its almost purely cosmetic. I guess its probably not worth it.

The XE display is more than $250. I have done a few conversions with the bigger display, well worth it, but I suspect your not referring to swapping out the display?

Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...

than they are doing you a favor at that price. If they are competent and you trust them with your radio, that is a good price considering the parts alone exceed that amount

There is no seperate display for the XE


Only things needing changed are the front & back housing & the control top

NSO on the control top alone is over $300

If someone has all parts for $250 that's a good deal
