Next thing I needed to do...and don't ask me why it bothered me so much was get rid of that floppy antenna that she came with :LOL: So I went onto craven speed and ordered me a Stubby.:smileup:

So the next thing I had to do (which I look back on now and wish I had taken more time with this and been more patient) was change out the stock speakers. I had originally went with these OEM quality PowerBass speakers all the way around but after about a year of them in my truck I currently can't stand the quality and have ordered Rockford Fosgate Punch speakers all the way around and am waiting on them to arrive :smileup:

Next step was to add to the performance a little bit and i did that with an AFE intake system after consulting with Maddog who steered me in the right direction with this one

Next came a simple headlight and foglight bulb replacement for a temp fix until I can decide whether or not I want to get HID bulbs or get some gorecon headlight assemblies so I went with the Sylvania top of the line bulbs to hold me over until my mind makes that decision...whenever it might be lol
