James, maybe its just me, but for some reason those fenders with the large flares just dont look right with the stock bumper.

Have you looked into the Tahoe style valence to see if it would work for what you want?

Sorry if I made you feel bad, James. Was never my intention. I just thought your truck looked more proportional with the larger bumper on it. I can get used to the change.

Today she got a few tweaks.

New lift pump must be moving more fuel cause when sheís cold the damn thing can not maintain rail pressure. You could see the truck commanding max current and rail would still creep up. So I bumped the current up from 1550mA to 1700mA and smoothed the next 5 to go with. Much better. Hovers around 1600mA now when cold.

Then swapped my old amp out for a new pioneer mono amp. For some reason, in all the years Iíve had this Rockford fosgate amp in here, Iíve always thought it was a 800rms/1600peak amp.... ha, no. Itís a 350/700 amp. I bought it used years ago (like 16-17 years ago) and didnít know much about amps, just went off what my buddy told me it was. I had the subs wired at 2 ohm at the amp and it sounded good, gave you a good back massage thatís for sure. Well I thought it finally died so I bought this new pioneer amp. Well new pioneer is 1000rms/2000peak at 1 ohm stable, 800/1600 at 2 ohm to match what I thought my old amp was . Pulled my old amp and found the power connection was going to shit and thatís why it was cutting out. Oh well, Iíll save it for my tracker. my subs are 200rms each and 4 ohm. So I paralleled all the subs and hooked up the amp so itís 1 ohm to the new pioneer. Holy shit! I can believe how much harder it hits!

Then I swapped out my dead inverter for a new 300 watt one so my laptop will charge.
