When the factory ones are blown its very worth it to replace them. I'm not spending the extra money to amp hers and I highly doubt she will soooooo

Now I'm going with 6.5" components in the front doors that will be amped and just 6x8s in the rear with 2 10"s under the seats.

Just got my infinity's in and oh my they sound great. I have a Pioneer DEH 3000IB and will upgrade to a better one later this year maybe when x-mas time rolls around with all good low-prices! I'm going to go to the beach tomorrow maybe so I will get some good pics of the interior and the truck. I just need to paint the 2 cubby hole doors and the 2 back panels and my interior is done! But still have some more sound system items to put in if you know what I mean.

OK WTF!!!!!!!

So I got all my speakers in and they sound great. Go to eat dinner and come back an hour later and they don't produce any sound. Nothing. Head unit works fine, but no sound. Checked all the wiring behind the dash and that's fine. Now I need to pull out the speakers to figure out whats going on! I'm pissed right now!

don't be surprised if its your pioneer. Ive had a few (five) friends around here install them only to have the internal amp die within a few weeks. Im a pioneer hater. Im sure it isn't helping that those infinitys are 2 Ohm impedence thats more stress on the amp.

Well I got it to work I think it was a wiring issue on the wiring harness. All wires are well connected now.

You can't compare bolting on a suspension lift and welding spring perches on a axle to a SAS. A SAS requires a strong knowledge of welding and suspension geometry. I'm not saying FRXLT can't do it, it just doesn't compare to just bolting on parts.

Updated Driveway Pics!

LoL you guys are funny! Yes I have always thought of doing a SAS on my truck. But I run into a lot of problems. The truck is my daily driver. I have no shop to store it in, no welder, very little amount of cutting tools and cut off wheels and other tool besides wrench's and socket's and the knowledge. I have other priorities on my list to accomplish and the first thing is to pay my truck off. Then start saving for a house and accomplish my goals for a career and accomplish my goals in the marine corps. I am very happy with how far I have come and how the truck performs and I know it could be a lot better, when I get settled down and situated I want build up a 74 Jeep Wagoneer and swap in a Cummins 12valve. That will be my 4wheeler/toy hauler. Enough of the Jibbba Jabbaa and on to some updated driveway pics!

Here are the mods: 06+ Corners, Trents Decal emblems, painted my tool box black with rust-o-leum bed liner can spray, White LEDs in the cargo lights

Mods to come: Add extra LED's to the 06+ tails, Xcal3, 4.56 gears, Tru-Trac L/S, Tric-Flo Diff Cover. On the hunt for red 2003 FX4 Seats

About 5 months now. One is a cheap ebay one and fits like crap. I am thinking of getting new ones from ford with the black caps and eventually paint them the color of my truck but these will do for now.
