Hello all! Over the past few days I've been lurking on this website and appreciate the wealth of knowledge here. I've put together my "system" for my truck, which is a 2000 Ford F-150 Lightning. The truck is heavily modified, and made 547 HP and 631 TQ on the dyno, and runs high 10's in the 1/4 mile. It has plenty of go, and show, but needs some sound to go with it all. Having video capability was important to me, as well as a customizable background on the h/u. So, here's what I have planned, and bought.

Pioneer AVH-P4100DVD
Kicker IX1000.1
2 x Alpine SWR-1023D
Kicker IX500.4
4 x Hertz Hertz Hi-Energy HSK165

I have reasons and logic for what I bought, but what's your general thoughts? Any input would be appreciated!

You could pick up a few tenths and maybe improve your 60Ft by dropping some weight.

Experimenting with tire pressure and launch RPM helps too.

Staging deep usually improves reaction time...................

A nice and steady burnout gets good results and don't dirty the tires with a dry hop.

HA! Not quite the input I was looking for. But, since you mentioned it...I'm justifying the weight addition in the truck by removing the stock tailgate, stock bumper, stock bedsides, and doors. Swapping it all out for carbon fiber pieces. Should drop at least 300#.

I bet you guys think we all live in igloos, eat whale blubber, and dont like outdoor activities for fear of being eaten by polar bears as well, huh?

Alaska has a summer, in Anchorage we get 60-70* and sometimes up to 90*, near central Alaska temps are commonly 80-100*. Summer starts in May and ends in September normally. In the wintertime a lot of people do drive 4WD or AWD, but a lot of people have summer vehicles and Alaska has the highest number of motorcycles per capita, it's a beautiful state to be outside in during the summer. So, with that said, my Lightning only gets driven on nice sunny weekends during the 5 summer/fall months we have.
