    Did you run 2 relays for the second set? Or was one enough? I can't imagine how loud 4 would be

    I rode with one of the guys from work out to lunch in his f150 platinum with cooling seats and a back massager and I've decided I need at least the cooling part lol so does anybody have any experience with a quality cooling seat cover? I'm not too worried about a back massage but that was the greatest ride I've ever taken in a vehicle

    Also, on the torque pro app, I don't get a transmission or engine oil temp. Do our trucks just not put out that info? I feel like those two are kinda important

    IIRC , you has to add in some kind of algorythm.................


    Hey folks, check your valve cover bolts..........was just checkin under the hood and stuff, somehow stumbled onto checking the air intake bracket and found that most of the vc bolts were not even tight as they should be. Can't believe it wasn't leaking looseness to be exact. Yea for finding it before there was a mess or worse.


    Installed the driver side molle panel in the storage bins and put in a pr of super bright ass LED rev lights......

    Did you check with a torque wrench? Valve cover bolts are among the lowest torque spec in the truck, measured in inch/lbs, not even ft/lbs. Spec is 53 in/lbs, which barely seems snug. Over-tightening will cause leaks.

    Those bolts are some of the few that don't follow the standard torque guides.

    New To the Site. Not much as far as major mods go. Below is what I have done so far. Not sure some would even be considered MODS.

    My next MOD project is 1. Finding a reasonably priced 15 TRD Pro grill insert 2. Verifying fit and installing a Alpine Compact 8” sub under driver seat.

    Installed CT Sounds 6x9's and Rockford-Fosgate tweeters in the front doors and CT Sounds 6.5's in the rear doors. Pretty happy with the bass from the stock head unit.

    As plug-n-play as speakers can be. Had to use the Metra 82-8146 speaker adapters behind the speaker itself to hold it to the door and the Metra 72-8104 speaker connecters to convert from the factory wiring to the two wire leads that the speaker needed, but install is straightforward when it's all combined.
