    "Trailgate" sounds like what happened when those assholes tagged the ancient petroglyphs in Moab.

    I don't know, sounds like Taco Bell was involved with a trail out of "the gate" :rolleyes:

    Swapped out all of my speakers. Went with the Subaru/Kicker tweeters, Kicker KS 6x9s in the front, and Kicker CS 6.75" in the back. I didn't think it was worth upgrading the back speakers since you can't really hear them anyway, but it's a slight improvement. Overall, the tweeters made the biggest difference between all of them. Also added some Noico 80mil sound deadening for the 6x9s. I figured it was useless for the back speakers, so I didn't bother with those. Still debating on a small sub (Kicker Hideaway 8" maybe), so I'll see what these sound like once they get broken in.

    Replaced the front diff needle bearing with the ECGS bushing with some tools that a kind member on the forum allowed me to use. Not a bad job.

    YES IT IS. If they have it stock - get it.

    The hardest part of mine was finding a decent mini-USB cable to the camera. I had a 6" one, but it was too inflexible to make the bend to the camera power port. An 18" cable worked better - I just wrapped the excess length tightly around the base of the mirror mount. It's worked solidly for about 2 years now.

    I actually routed the cable up into the headliner and dropped it at the camera.

    Hmmmm...good idea. That way the cable comes straight down to the power port.

    I will have to do that the next time I need to get at it. Right now everything's working great so I'm not willing to touch it.

    I finally got it to the point that I can swap out memory cards (for when I need to download some good footage). My next one will be WiFi-enabled - my current one isn't and requires that sneakernet step.

    I had this exact same laundry list of items in a shopping cart yesterday but couldn't commit. I don't despise the stock sound, but it seems to lack depth. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts after you've had a chance to test them out.

    I immediately noticed the difference in the mids and highs. As for the lows, it's a slight improvement for now, but I'm hoping it gets better after they're broken in. I definitely think it's worth the upgrade.

    I found that the better I insulated the doors the better the base response was. Also, after a few weeks of medium volume they sounded better as well.

    I don't believe you are drilling into any metal there. That is all composite bed. That is where I am struggling on understanding the need for any anti-rust protection. If you keep watching after the holes are drilled, he goes straight into installing the bed stiffeners. I don't think there is any difference on the Total Chaos holes. Also all into composite. The composite bed has no metal as far as I understand it.

    Pretty cool how they are made....
