  1. No phone number unfortunately as I only contacted them via email.
  2. Qwank's 2017 Regular Cab Z71 build

    Looking great!! I'm actually building yet another sub enclosure for mine today and gonna try to catch up with you soon!
  3. Took me 3 tries but they did eventually reply.
  4. For a few bucks more and a little extra time you can also make the tailgate remotely drop using your oem key fob...
  5. Just did this mod today (only took a couple of minutes and a 99 cent diode) and hopefully it helps with the crappy picture quality from my backup camera at night.
  6. Gotcha.Yeah I like the 3 way better as well and if I go that route I would put the tweeters in pods on the dash more on axis (Alpine/ScanSpeak ring radiators) semi active with mids/tweeters on passives. Just not sure if I want to spend the time doing all that or if I'll just "keep it simple" with a 2 way.
  7. Nice! 🙂 I'm still on the fence about going 3 way up front and as with you I will "eventually" get around to it! Where do you have the tweeter mounted now and were you able to get the 4" in the dash?
  8. Thanks for the recommendations and I'll check those out!
  9. Ouch don't know how I missed that!
  10. No longer worrying about the nick or the cargo light on mod?!
  11. 2 years 2 months and 18 days of parking as far away from other vehicles as possible to avoid nicks and ended up doing this myself with the wand at the car wash. (at least I no longer have to worry about when I'll get the first nick!) Also did the "cargo light on with reverse lights" mod. Only took a couple of minutes with a 99 cent diode and hopefully it will help with the crappy picture from my backup camera at night. Next I'll do the LED conversion on the backup lights and cargo light.
  12. I called Alpine before buying my Restyle kit and they told me since the Maestro connected right to the clockspring I could just add the steering wheel/correct clockspring but unfortunately the controls did not work. I then called idatalink tech support and was told the steering wheel controls would not work unless your truck originally came with/is programmed for steering wheel controls due to the way the way the oem setup communicates. I also referenced the info in this thread regarding swapping the cluster/adding the wires etc and he said they could not guarantee they would work even after doing all that.

    I haven't had time to do much on the audio lately but I did get around to gluing the tab back on the rear trim piece so I can at least put the rest of the rear wall back together (I used JB Weld for plastic and it seems to be solid). I'm going to run the rest of the wires this weekend and then all I have to do is deaden the doors, install the speakers and sub.
  14. Sound is very subjective and everybody has different listening tastes so our opinions of what is "better" may be quite different. The only way to positively determine if you will like the sound beforehand is to listen to a Bose system truck someone has already upgraded with the exact speakers you are interested in otherwise it's still somewhat a shot in the dark when based on other people's opinions. IMO of course.
