Default newbie newbie newwwwwb

just "checkin in"

Just bought my 02 ram 1500 single cab. 4.7L v8, SLT, oem 20's, yadda yadda yadda.

Truck seems to be in overall good condition. Did a thorough cleaning underhood with Simple Green. Came with K&N filter in stock airbox and "duals", lol. Looks like a Flowmaster or wanna-be flowmaster y'd out to the back. Sounds good, not too loud and just enough to know what ya got, haha. Interior is nice with the excpetion of a "cracked to hell and back" dashboard and a flattened bolster on the drivers seat from hopping in and out. Guess I'm just gonna get a carpeted dash pad to cover up the unsightlyness.

ordered some new headlights and gonna add some HID's when I can verify they will use same bulbs as factory. Probably gonna take the plunge and add HID's to the fogs as well. Does anyone have any input on what the stock bulbs are?

Meeting with my stereo guy about putting my equipment in the truck. I have a Clarion headunit I'm going to install and power the stock locations with a Diamond Audio amp I've been hoarding. Replacing the door speakers with Memphis MC 6.5" coaxials. Gotta sell my 4" MC's and pickup a set of 5 1/4" for the rear. Gonna run 2 8" Kicker Comp CVR's behind the seats on a separate amp, probably use the Zapco Reference 500.1 I have for that. Nothing super fancy but high quality sound

Welcome to the site! Excellent choice in audio items. Diamond Audio FTW! I have the Diamond M3 6x9"s, 5 1/4"s, and two 10"s. May change the 6x9"s to a set of their components, but still undecided as far as that goes. I hear their component tweeters can pierce your ears when amplified. I have an Eclipse 3422 for the doors and a US Acoustics USX2150 for the 10"s, whenever I finally decide on a radio.

My 99 Ram had the dash completly disenegrated when I bought it. I called the local dealer and they had one in stock for $125. ( I bet they sell a bunch of em ) It's not to tough to install either. When you're done you'll have a brand new dash, not some funky pad.
