Only had about a hour and a half, but got most of the stuff out of the truck so Incan start routing wires and putting sound deadened on.

That poor truck spends more time torn down in the garage than it does on the road.  Haha.

It's like owning a supercar.  It costs a fortune and spends all of its time in the garage.  You got yourself a super truck.

The beauty of not having any payments is that I can budget a decent amount for it.

I was able to get a bit farther last night. Sound deadening put on the back of the cab. Amp Pro wired in behind the Deck, Amp mounted and speaker wires routed.

I hope to get it done today. I need to finish the RCA cable routing, power and ground for the Amp.

I was able to get almost all of it done yesterday. Just had a few set up things and first step tuning. I’ll let things settle in for a bit and then do  some tuning this weekend. This AmpPro converter has a cool PC software interface that you can use to adjust a few things. Gotta play with it.

I didn’t grab any pics of the felt panel and seat re-install.

Nice looking installation work! Then again, we expected nothing less from you.   :yoda:

Thanks Tom!

I took the truck out to tune the stereo a little bit (had to take it out of the garage, because it's too loud). With just making a adjustment to the gain and hi-pass, it sounds noticeably better. I may have left a little bit on the table, but will make further changes once I get into the converter software.

Agreed that looks super clean.  That truck has come along way and still looks understated.  I like that.

Not much going on. Went and got some cedar fire wood last weekend and had to go for a bit of a drive last night. Went and explored a trial that leads down to the river not far from the house. It was super sloppy and muddy. Ruts were easily a foot deep in a few places.

I did find out that if I want to the Torsen, that my only option is from Ford. I have the part number, so gonna get a price from my Cousin. I’m guessing around $1k my cost.

Damn.  That's too bad.  I hate when I'm unhappy with a purchase.

The D shackles turned out to be more of a orange color, where the winch hook is more Ruby.

Looks close without the light but definitely doesn't match enough for my liking.
