  1. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Only if you fully dismantled the dash. Even then, it likely won't be worth it. They really aren't that difficult to remove if you follow the steps outlined in post #1 here.
  2. Fender flares that cover body

    Pick up some of GenRight's fender delete panels, then paint/powder coat them, and install them between the fender and the body. I cut my fenders quite a bit, then trimmed the GenRight fender deletes to match the shape I needed. This would work for you, without having to trim them. Here's...
  3. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    That procedure only works with the Rockford module connected, unfortunately. It would be nice if it was a standard function.
  4. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Sorry you're having issues. I've been out and about this weekend, so sorry also for a late response. It sounds like there's a calibration issue with the PAC. Specifically, it seems like the calibration may have occurred when only the front driver channel was working (and the other channels...
  5. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    With the tips listed in post #1, it's really not that bad. Enjoy and have fun with it!
  6. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    It would definitely be the easiest to implement option. You'll need to upgrade all of the stock speakers, eventually. Since you're already running Kickers, just stick with a similar path to replace the rest of the stock ones. You'll blow the cheapo stock speakers pretty quickly.
  7. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    It's a nice, compact low wattage amp. If you match it to speakers that will perform well with that power threshold, it'll sound much better than stock.
  8. Steering worse after TSB fix.

    No, it was actually part of the ECU update. The sheet they provided referenced the variances, it just didn't state what they meant.
  9. Steering worse after TSB fix.

    It's what I was told by the dealer, because they already had software for it. Haven't seen it yet, but you might connect with Benny at for any updates. They had to find the older AE software for mine.
  10. Poll: Did TSB 08-074-20 Fix Your Steering Issues?

    For those with excessive play in your steering (large dead spot), even after the TSB, here's something to ponder... Coming from the steering column, there's a cable that connects to the gearbox via an off-white plastic-type cap that has a set screw. I'm wondering if that cap with the set...
  11. Steering worse after TSB fix.

    I mentioned this in another thread, but being out of warranty, I upgraded the gear box myself, having ordered from Benny at I somewhat cheated and sent the new gearbox (AE version) directly to be ported for a Hydro-assist setup (which is pretty awesome!). There was some...
  12. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    If you're using the PAC, you won't need resistors. It does a great job of satisfying the load sensing test from uConnect. As for the tips, at least from me, post #1 here contains many that I've run across. Having the right tools is key, especially quality wire splicers, connectors...
  13. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    You're on it, and your system should sound great. I'd argue that for the money, you'd be better off adding your own custom made box and a higher-end sub (as you know, it's just a W3), but if space is an issue, then the stealth boxes will work well, especially if you get two! Generally...
  14. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    You'll want to provide some extra "head room" for your amp. The basic concept here is that turning the stereo up all the way adds distortion, and that added distortion gets amplified to cause chaos for speakers. I generally recommend buying an amp that's about 130% of the RMS capacity of the...
  15. 2021 Steel Steering Gear Upgrade

    I'm a proud owner of the new gear box purchased from Benny a little over a month ago. Benny and the team have helped me tremendously over the years, and they have been a huge resource for all of us here in the forums. To date, no software updates here, though I'll likely ask...
  16. The Tire Carrier Thread

    Exactly! Make sure to use Stainless Steel screws and nuts. I didn't and they're starting to rust. Good luck!
  17. What head units have you guys upgraded to?

    I may have missed this in the detail... Are the AUX buttons supported as well?
  18. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    I always recommend running new wire on an amplified system, though you would benefit by installing separates up front and running the single channel into the separate's crossover, then feeding each component speaker from there. I do believe the various adapters are summing the signals from the...
  19. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Definitely not out of line, and no worries on chiming in. They're basically the same. One has more wires than the other. The PAC fits both, for example, and you simply set the dip switches on the PAC so that it adjust how it handles the processing. I can't speak to the RF version, but that's...
  20. Adding an Aftermarket Amp(s)

    Gasan, the only way I know to maximize your current position (prior to any further upgrades) would be to remove the cross-overs, running the stock tweeter wires to your new tweeters, and the stock mid-range wires to the new mid-range speakers. I can't say for sure, but you may/may not need to...
