    50,000,000% upgrade by only replacing the speakers. They're the only OEM part you can feel good about punting into the nearest landfill. I could turn my volume up to max and still have a convo without lifting my voice. Ridiculous.

    Sucks because I just did an alignment last week, have to replace SPCs with these this week and do another alignment, and my rack is leaking so I have to do ANOTHER alignment when I replace that.

    Are you guys taking a brush to the truck or just foaming and rinsing? I'm an avid washer/detailer with a respectable arsenal of chemicals and products but this is new to me.

    Foaming and rinsing will remove a lot of dirt. I foam and hand wash when I have time. Foam Canon does a great job.

    Got the powertank in. For reference this is the 15lb bottle. Got the rivnuts installed for the mount, just need to go pick up some stainless steel hardware to finish mounting it.

    6in fabtech lift, icon billet UCA, fox 2.5 Coil overs with DSC - stiffer shim stack 700LBS springs, fox 2.0 12in in the rear, fox 2.0 hydro bump stops front and rear, BAMF shock relocation kit, re-gear to 4.10 factory E-locker and ARB locker up front, all pro apex front bumper and sliders, brute force HC rear bumper with swing out tire and jerry can holder plus super sweet fold down table that made cutting up my truck totally worth it, lights everywhere... like really everywhere, dual battery set up with yellow tops, more rocker switches than i can count, sweet USB/AUX bat monitor in bed of truck. Saved weight and gained massive HP ( guessing like gains of 150HP ) by removing sway bar and ripping out carpet for custom rubber matting. installed custom pin work down both sides of truck ( big shout out to manzinita bushes ) hard core black paint job on bumpers / sliders / engine hood / cabin hood from rattle can paint available at wallmart. and of course ice cream truck music to mess with lil kids ( best $30 ever spent )
    I wish I could tell you but I just bought this truck and the tires were already like that.
