Nice, hope you enjoyed the month off. I'm off for the next 2 weeks so my sub/amp install will need to wait.
Thanks for the reply. Was going to try and find a rubber grommet to fit in those holes but if tape did the trick maybe I'm over thinking it.
Bringing this back from the dead to see if someone else can help with an issue I've been having with one of the headlights.
The passenger side headlight (low beam) has been finicky. Doesn't turn on all the time. Seems to just work when ever it wants. I'm basically driving around with a burnt...
Thanks for documenting this so well with pics and all. A few questions for you.
1- When hooking up the sub to the amp what did you use to block off the hole where the wires are ran? I'll be pulling the factory connectors and running speaker wire. Assuming you did the same?
2- What did you do...
Haven't been doing LubeGard, maybe i should look into this. The truck is still burning oil (1L per tank of gas) and I cant see myself dealing with the valve seals in the near future.
We ended up moving back in April so most of my truck mods have stalled while we handled the move. Now I'm...
Nicely timed bump.
Have the Sub and Amp sitting in the garage waiting on install. Ended up moving to a different place and getting time for this stuff has proven difficult.
Will update when I have more to share.
Also interested. Last summer/fall mine was using at least a half liter of oil every tank of gas. Blows blue out of the exhaust on start up. Did replace the PCV and it didn't seem to help. I fear it might be time for valve seals on mine. Truck hasn't moved since November and I plan to wake...
Curious how all this turns out for you. Especially the sub.
I'm in the process of colleting parts to do something similar. Going to put the Kicker 8" sub in the stock Alpine box with a dedicated amp. Already have an aftermarket head unit. Planning to leave the speakers alone.
Yes i am running the Alpine system currently minus a head unit. Was planning to run a separate amp for the sub and keep the speakers wired to the head unit.
May have to just speak with a local store to get this all sorted properly.
Awesome. I'm looking at doing this in the next couple of weeks too. Liking the shallow sub so i can maintain the back seat height.
Already covered the box with sound deadner and filled it with polyfill for use with the stock alpine sub.
1- for those that have done this, are you...
Wanted to bump this thread.
Currently burning oil in my 5.7. 174,XXXkm on the engine. Typically I only see smoke on start up. I'm down about 1-1.5 L every tank of gas... roughly 400-500km.
Thinking i should start with a PCV valve check/clean/replace and go from there. Should note that my...
I tow with a 2/3 GF kit and 2wd front spindles on my 4x4. Airlift bags and a rear sway bar is a must. Our trailer is about the same weight as you. Have been running this for 5 ish years now and never an issue.
