A few new mods!!

Can you spot the new mod in the second pic?
BEFORE


AFTER



Can you tell?
how about now?



Before it was hanging down, the muffler was the lowest point on the whole vehilce, the pipe after the cat bent down it was stupid. They put a thicker pipe (not bent down) right after the cat, tucked the muffler up so its not visible and out of harms way, and used a nice polished aluminum pipe out the side



Also did this:




Also painted some interiors And made a permanent GPS mount, since I use my GPS for everything, it has a 16GB card with all my music and also has a movie player on there for long trips :)




I wired up a new power outlet and mounted it out of harms way and out of sight, keeps it really clean, my main concern was making it un-obvious that I have a gps in the truck, when someone walks by and looks in the won't see it. Also, the windshields on our trucks are small, and there's no room for a gps without affecting our vision
Heres the new outlet and clean wire job : )

Awesome. By they way, your truck looks great! I love the look of your truck. I think thats the height and tire size they should have came from from the factory.

Thanks all!
The power outlet is a piece of cake. I bought the outlet for $3 at napa, you just run a ground wire (i ran mine under the carpet to behind the plastic cover to the right of the passengers feet) and the positive wire I ran to the fuse box (zip tied it up along underneath the dash) and used a pigtail fuse (a fuse with a cable coming out of it much easier than fuse taps) in to one of the un-used fuse sockets. Look in your manual and there are a bunch of sockets that say "not used", just test with a volt meter to see which ones are hot all the time and which one's are ignition and you choose. Simple as that! To mount it I drilled 4 holes on the side of the cupholder thing as far back as possible, put two zip-ties through and a small piece of vapor wrap to stick it to the side.

The exhaust sounds very good, just not loud. I did have it dumped and it was crazy loud, but got annoying on the highway on the way to work every morning. Also, it was starting to get black underneath. It definetly sounds alot better and louder than the stock muffler, and better and louder than when I had the flowmaster exit out the back, but not as loud as dumped. The intake sounds sick though, at first I had a smaller K&N "CAI" lol off ebay came with a little tube the placed it right in front of the headlight, but I didnt like it. I cut out the stock box and plopped it back in for a little protection and it makes the intake louder, it kind of echo's around in there.
