    Best replacement for OEM speakers...

    Sincerely appreciate all of the responses... I clearly don't know, what I don't know, which seems like a @#$%! ton at this point. If at all possible, I was hoping to keep the cost in the $1,000-1,500 (max) range. Don't know if that means I'm generally SOL, or there are options that would be...

    Best replacement for OEM speakers...

    Posting this because I perused the "speaker upgrade' thread and didn't see an answer to what I'm hoping is a fairly simple question. If I'm not looking to upgrade the entire system at this time but I'd like to get the best sound I can out of the existing system/head unit by only replacing...

    I'm glad they did as well... super refreshing to have a business operate that way and they'll definitely get future referrals/business from me as a result.

    Paint Correction & Ceramic Coating

    Is there something that provides superior protection from the elements, namely the sun? Given the truck will mostly be outside, I just wanted to make sure I do what I can to keep the paint from getting hammered by the sun. Thanks!

    Paint Correction & Ceramic Coating

    Have some fitment issues with the truck and my garage. Not sure if I'll be able to remedy them well enough for day to day use so the truck will likely live in the driveway and be pulled into the garage only during hail/ice storms. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to get the...

    Pain Correction & Ceramic Coating

    I'll price out the cost of ppf on the front end as well. Any thoughts on the price range for the services I mentioned?

    Doggo owners, what’s your front to back seat barrier?

    This is an old thread but I found this tonight and thought other people might find it interesting. This is the only one I've seen specifically made to work with the seats folded up in the back...

    Sure. Driven Auto Sales in Buda, TX (Suburb of Austin). I primarily dealt with Bob and Mike.

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Haha, appreciate the warm welcome... so far so good on the repairs. The truck seems to be running well. Drove it a bit Saturday and Sunday and had some opportunities to get on it a few times and didn't have any issues (knock on wood). I will drive it a bit as is and make sure it's stable...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Wasn't looking for the headache, but it WAS looking for me. If you have time to read through the thread, you'll see where I stand at the moment. Apart from the original SNAFU of not knowing about the tune before ensuring me it hadn't been tuned, they've handled every single thing (that...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Sincerely appreciate the insight... hoping that's all it was in this case and the issue is resolved now. The truck got 6 new spark plugs and two new coil packs this afternoon. Dealer handled the bill, which was just over $700. Here's hoping she runs like a champ now.

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    I picked the truck up this afternoon before I saw this but I did so at 'quitting time' so there's not really any place for me to run it wide open at the moment as the streets and freeways are congested a bit. I'll take it for a spin later this evening, let it get to temp and run it hard a few...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    That was my first thought/concern too... the thing is, I am not sure if the original owner installed them himself or if it was done professionally. So maybe they were over/under torqued? Not properly gapped? Would that cause them to crack? Is is possible the previous tune on the truck could...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Thanks to everyone for the additional replies and the information… again, I’m learning a ton and I appreciate you guys taking the time to help me. The shop was super busy yesterday so they didn’t have a chance to complete the inspection until today. Just got a call that there were two cracked...

    I dropped it off at the shop this morning. They were busy but said they'd have a look at if before the end of the day, so I'm waiting for the codes/diagnosis now. I'll definitely report back here once they give me a call. As for all the other (new) responses, I really appreciate it. Once I...

    The intake would be hard to miss and they did tell me about the exhaust but nobody mentioned the intercooler and when I asked the dealer about the mods, they specifically said it hadn't been tuned, which I'll assume they believed to be the truth, but that's obviously not the case given the note...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Appreciate all the responses. Dealer called back this evening and thus far seems super cooperative, like they genuinely want to make it right. They are based outside of Austin and I'm in N. Dallas. They found a well reviewed shop in my area, called ahead and made arrangements for me to take...

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    Thank you, I'll do that. Are the symptoms I mentioned super worrisome to anyone but me? Are they indicative one or more specific issues, given what I've explained about the truck and when they occurred?

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    I do like the truck overall, I'd just like it to run right. I can ask the dealer about having it returned completely to stock and see if that's an option they'd roll with... not sure at this point.

    New Gen 2 Owner - Day 1 problems...[resolved, hopefully]

    What's up guys... hoping to get some information (and hopefully piece of mind) from folks that are more experienced with the truck (mods) than I am. Apologies up front for the long read. Disclaimer: I've notified the dealership I purchased from of the issue and they said they'd work with me to...
