  1. Technically I didn't do it, but last week I took it to the local muffler shop. They Cut out the factory muffler and flapper valve and replaced it with a VX Muffler. Now it sounds like a truck!!!
  2. A few months back I replaced the Bose system speakers with JL C1s. 6x9 components in front doors with tweeters in dash and full range 6.5s in rear doors. Added dynamat xtreme in the doors. Significant improvement over the Bose system speakers. That being said, the sound going to the rear speakers is almost useless and a little more bass would be nice as well, so I'm thinking of upgrade options as follows: OPTION 1 - Kicker Key 200.4 option using AIS harness amplifying 6x9s and 6.5s, Bose amp would run tweeters and factory subwoofer. I'm thinking the DSP built into this unit
  3. I'll start by saying I LOVED the performance and fuel mileage of the small diesel (RAM Ecodiesel). So yeah, I considered the 3.0L Duramax Diesel. However, my less than stellar experience with initial cost, reliability, emissions, and actual cost of ownership with the Ram EcoDiesel sent me another direction. I was a guinea pig for one baby diesel, I didn't see a reason to volunteer (much less pay) to be one again... Now, in 4-5 years if the 3.0L Duramax Diesel proves to be reliable and ultimately worth the initial investment, I'll be all in, till then I won't be rolling coal. I
  4. I bought a new 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation with 5.3L after my 2016 RAM Ecodiesel blew at 179k ... Yeah, I know its a Dodge. No, I will never buy another RAM again.... That being said, I seriously miss the fuel mileage and low end torque. I know I will have to deal with the fuel mileage, but I'm really looking to boost the low end a little bit when towing. In the past I used a Diablo Predator hand held tuner on my 2009 Silverado 5.3L with good results, but I didn't see anything compatible on their website. What do you use, recommend and why?
  5. This probably belongs in the Engine forum... I'll post it there.

  7. Budget friendly is a little vague, so I'll go with under $500 mods. Swapped Bose speakers to JL Audio C1 6x9 components in front and C1 6.5" in rear, installed dynomat in doors and window caulk? around speaker mounts. Under $400 for speakers, mounts, wire harnesses at Crutchfield. Substantial improvement over Bose speakers. Best mod done to date. LineX bedliner. $500 Short stubby antenna (bought on Amazon) < $20 S&B CAI [email protected] Truck (On backorder) Luverne Slim Grip Running Boards [email protected] Truck
  8. Installed myself. I’ve always just put the dynomat on the interior (actually backside of external part of door) metal, never on the interior door panel (plastic). I did as much dynomat as I could reach.
