So I got all the big 3 installed, alternator and wired up.. Started it up and it was squeaking stock pulley is a lil bigger than my DC Power alt so I went to autozone and fiddled around with a few smaller belts but none of them fit! they were all too small.. Turns out my belt was just worn out even though it was only 8 months old? So I got a new one, slapped it on there and viola! Back in business and my truck doesn't screech like yo momma.
Oh and BTW I'm charging at 15.3 bitchezzzzz((:
AND, I picked up this bit ch today, guy that backed out ended up getting his amp back so I'm set on a amp now!
It's huge! And my dual inputs look RIGHT at home in this bish, cannnnt fuckinggg wait to install it I'm sooo hyped
I'm sanding all the pieces I'm painting on my doors down today, should have some updates soon.. I'm going to Louisiana with my fam in the a.m. and ill be gone till Tuesday but once I get back, fuuuuuullll fledged slaving on this bish till its done..
I ordered my ipad mini bezel from soundman so that should be here for sure by when I get back, and I got a XS D3400 for under the hood in that back corner, just gotta build a box/holder for it. plenty updates will be coming soon so stay tuned!
Leaving New Orleans in a few hours, gonna chill with the fam when I get back but starting tomorrow the 26th, I'm ham at it, doors will be getting re installed once everything is painted, gotta finish the box and get it in, and then it is onto the amp rack and other things, can't wait, stay tuned guyz(:

Evening *******... got some updates for yeahs..
lets start it off with a bang
Next two pics show why there hasnt been **** for progress the last week and a half, i was in New Orleans with my girlfriends fam!
this is her and I infront of the Superdome in downtown NO
bad *** pic I took while we were on the barge.
Of course I went to Bourbon Street..
Christmas day it snowed in Dallas, wtf! (Man I really need to get my valance back on...)
Started mocking up my little under dash housing that will hold my HU, test fitted in the truck and I still have room to move around even though Im 6'3.. it will be going above my left knee
iPad mini dash mock up. knob you see on the left flushed in is a Pac LC1 i took apart and mounted, it will serve as My bass knob, not sure if I will end up doing this dash white, or black, or a combo of both.. Im thinking a combo..
Yeah its gonna be nice and flush
Looks like a good place for some LEDs...
Today I installed my LED's I ordered in my grille.
Heat shrinked and ready to go
Daytime pics do NO justice, you can only see the actual color of them at night, scroll down for night shots(;
Gettin ready to solder the passenger side
All taped up and done!
They dont project much light out in front of the truck but from the LED's over to the side it lights up everything, they will compliment my HID's very well..
started painting some interior pieces I had sanded.. just wanted to see some progress really.. lol i still need to sand down some other panels.
camera died after this pic but youre not missing much..
gonna take the lady shopping tomorrow so IDK what I will get done but stay tuned I may have some more small updates for you guyz.. sorry I havent been consistent with updates. thats about to change(:
